I think I'm reliving another one of my childhood memories. We've had some rain here lately and big puddles have formed. The kids were so excited to see tadpoles. Not just a couple, but thousands! It hasn't rained in 2 days, so the big puddles are drying up and the tadpoles are dying. Brenna said, "It's just terrible!" So, they decided to catch as many as they could and try to save some. They ended up saving several joke! We'll see how they do. They are very tiny now. It will be fun to watch them grow, if they make it. We did this when I was a kid and put them in a 10 gallon aquarium. I remember one morning we woke up and had tons of frogs jumping in the aquarium. It was so cool. Hopefully, soon, I'll be making another post about our baby frogs.
By the way, Beth put one of her little plastic frogs next to the rubbermaid container full of tadpoles tonight. It was so cute. I don't know if she's showing them how they should look like or giving them protection, or what. I thought it was cute!


  1. I can't wait to see all the pictures of your new frog friends! I am so glad that I am not there to join in the fun. I hate frogs! Love you guys!

  2. Boy, does that bring back memories. I love it when kids do stuff like that. And believe me you WILL have plenty of frogs jumping around. That reminds me of one of Pastors sermons on frogs...YUK!! Have fun. I know Beth collects she going to get to keep a few??
    Love you all, have fun.
    Love, Grandma/MOM
