This morning Porter found a dead baby bunny in our driveway. I assume Ramsey found it, killed it and brought it home. He was so sad for it. We decided to bury it out back and said a little prayer for Jesus to take care of him in Heaven. Porter kept saying “I’m so sad for that baby bunny!” 😦 Looks like we need to keep closer tabs on Ramsey this spring.
This evening we found a garter snake in the yard near our wood pile. I caught him so the boys could hold him for a bit. We had fun feeling his scales and watching him move through our hands. Ryan wasn’t so thrilled… he wanted to chop him with a shovel. Porter named him “No Feet” and wanted to keep him (ok, so did I– a little bit!). We held him for a bit and then released him out back near the swamp.
Pretty soon the salamanders and baby toads will be popping up all over the yard! YAY!
