The other day, Evva found this tiny turtle right behind our house. She thought it was a toy until she saw it move. It was the cutest little turtle I’ve ever seen. We had a hard time sending it back out into that large scary world, but we did so (and very quickly since we didn’t want to disturb such a little creature).
Then, the next day, we found a large black snake slithering across our front porch, and a few minutes later, another in the driveway. The kids followed them around for a little while until they lost interest (kids, not snakes). I hope they (snakes, not kids) go eat the voles in my garden (and not the baby turtle!).
