And Now For Something Completely Different!

So the kids called us out to the back fence last week, saying they found a turtle. They were really excited about it and surprisingly, weren't afraid of it! It stuck around the yard for a few days, digging a spot under the porch. Each day it became less afraid and even came up onto the porch. It probably would have walked through the back door if we had left it open! We finally opened up the fence to let it out, because it was driving the poor dog crazy. I'm glad it stayed away from the road and funnily enough, made its new burrow in the front yard! :)

Love the pics of William and the turtle! They look like best buds! A student of mine told me that she once had a gopher turtle that stuck around their house. They fed it, of course, and it became their pet. She claims that she even painted its toenails bright pink!
Funny, huh?

No biting thankfully, although I wasn't going to take a chance. Abbey only wanted to look at it, and even if he had wanted to, I wouldn't let William get his fingers anywhere near this guy's mouth! :)
