Froggies

Remember the taddies?


Well, we were away overnight Saturday night and when we got home on Sunday, a few of them looked like this!



So, to avoid our new friends finding their way inside the house to try out their hopping, we decided it was time for them to move out of home.

We took a little family walk yesterday afternoon to a waterway near our place which often has frogs and tadpoles in it. Hubby, myself, MissyMoo1 (5), MissyMoo2 (2) and MissyMoo3 (5 months) all went along and even The Fat Cat followed us over there. MissyMoo1 and MissyMoo2 helped tip the nearly-froggies out of the buckets. One beat them to it and hopped out of the bucket into the water.

MissyMoo1 was a bit sad at first, but she had a great lesson in loving, caring and then letting go.

I have a feeling that searching for tadpoles might become a new family pastime!

  1. Very cute! At least they fared better than our tadpoles which sank to the bottom of the jam jar.... :-(

    1. Oh no!
      They were well fed, bread every day. Let's hope the critters can make it in the real world.
