What will she find next?

This week, Kendall came running up on the deck screaming for me...

"MAMA!! MAMA!!!! You'llneverbelievewhatIfound!!! (deep breath) ImovedthisrockwhileIwaslookingforpoly-bugs,andIfound...(deep breath) A LIZARD!!!!!
ComelookcomelookcomelookNOWWWW!!!"

So of course, I am expecting one of those little tiny, gecko-like lizards. But NO-OOOOOO! When I looked in the green sand bucket she was carrying, I actually screamed. That was no gecko!!!! It was HUGE and black!!!! And missing a foot! Wouldn't you have screamed too??The first thing Kendall decided HAD to be done was to take the little beast over to see her friend Jackson, who lives behind us. Jackson and Kendall are fellow lizard/bug/creature lovers. She just knew he would go crazy to see her latest find. And he was. Here are some pics of those two being silly with their little salamander...



No fear, though, nature lovers...we always let the critters go home before bedtime!!

Oh my gosh! I'd have screamed too! How cool is that though, that Kendall isn't afraid of any of these creepy crawly things?

LOL!! B and M would get along famously with your Kendall. Right now they are scouring the backyard for bird feathers, lizards and froggie friends. Glad to hear you let the critters go... don't know how I would feel about a salamander slithering around in my house somewhere:)
