|Cool boots, man.|
|Doing the Boy Mom thing.|
|Cooper let me borrow his frog umbrella.|
|Don't you just want to squeeze those thighs?!|
As it turns out, some frogs had laid eggs in the "lake" that is our poorly drained street. (Thanks city of Houston?) And in a couple of days we discovered tadpoles.
What started as a fun Cooper activity...
...quickly became a neighborhood affair and before I knew it I had about 200 of these little suckers in a drink bucket in my front yard!
Let me tell you, I was a little worried about starting a biblical plague in my own front yard. There were SO MANY TADPOLES! However, it was a good little activity for us and the other kids and I used the "let's go check on the tadpoles" as a distraction many a time.
Well, as life (luck?) would have it, these guys turned into frogs during the torrential downpour that happened in Houston last weekend. We were happily out of town and returned to find only two cute little baby frogs. Whew.
As Cooper says, "Some tadpoles get to be frogs and others get to be dead." Well put.
IT'S THE CIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIRCLE OF LIFE!
Or, at least a very fun activity/science experiment at the least!
