Today I promised the kids we would go to the pond and scout out some frogs.  I wasn’t sure what we would find but what the heck!

Well once again the kids impressed me with their frog catching abilities.  So amazing to watch them take off their shoes and hunt for the frogs.

Penelope decided that she was more interested in observing and she sat on the rock at the top of the stream.  She watched as there was a flurry of excitement every time someone got a frog, “Chris caught another one!!”

I suggested that she write a poem about what she was observing and she did!!!

It ended up being a great time and the kids returned all the frogs gently back into the pond.  Vincent was proud to have caught 2 tadpoles and Chris caught the biggest frog I’ve ever seen at the pond.  What a great experience for everyone!!

Here’s some great pics:
