Pools and Tadpoles


My little girls always have some sort of critter captured in a multitude of containers in the garage - right now we have a turtle (don't worry - we have a catch, observe, and release rule) - and 4-5 large bullfrog tadpoles.  We keep those around a little while in a container of pond water and watch them grow their legs.  It's a great science lesson.  Today Boo decided to take a couple of them swimming with her in her pool.


They make pretty good playmates while sisters are at school.


See the legs starting to grow?







When my Hannah-Banana came home for lunch today - she enjoyed spending some time in the pool with "Boom-Boom" the tadpole as well.  (I don't know how they come up with these names!!)
