A Girl, Her Daddy and a Turtle

You may remember when Robert showed Clara a toad he found in our backyard?  Well, it was only one of what I'm sure will be many many encounters with backyard nature.  I'm thankful for that daddy and how much he wants this little girl to appreciate God's creation and be willing to get a little dirty to check it out.

We were all loaded up in the car and about to head somewhere, when Robert popped in the backseat with this little critter he had found.

So, of course, we had to all get out and go watch him creep around in the backyard a little.  Clara had just started saying the word "turtle" a few days before, so it was fun to watch her see one live and in action!

 "Hi Turtle!!"  And back into his shell he goes... Guess I can't blame him!

 Here's a little video of their encounter.

  1. There was a little turtle who lived in a box. He swam in the puddles and he climbed on the rocks. He snapped at the mosquito, he snapped at the flea, he snapped at the minnow and he snapped at ME! He caught the mosquito, he caught the flea, he caught the minnow but he didn't catch ME!!!!!!
