Once upon a time….
While I was attempting to secure the wiring for the dog fence I screamed. A big scream for a little toad that happened to scare the life out of me when it jumped out of nowhere and onto my foot.
I can’t quite figure out if I am lucky or unfortunate with Lincoln’s love of ALL living things. He caught the toad and is determined to make a habitat.
I am pretty set on “NO, the toad cannot come inside!” They just want to keep him long enough to show their dad, oh yea!
They took a bucket from a tomato plant and started to work! I am getting a kick out of Lincoln trying to catch a fly to feed the toad.
After some cutting of twigs… Jaxxon’s job, he cut some twigs with pruning shears, they have made a little home. It has a little container with water, dirt and some leaves… no bugs yet. Maybe I should not call the toad an it, for some reason the boys are calling it a she.
She is trying hard to escape… poor toad
They have been sitting out here for an hour making sure their toad is safe. Lincoln is trying hard to make them friends. He keeps picking up the toad, Jaxx is a little afraid of it, he screams like I do!
After dad sees it, they will put it in our garden so it can eat the bugs. They don’t really stop to think he is just gonna hop away!
