...mr frog...

...
the kids and i mowed the front and middle yard this morning and flushed a frog.
i mean toad.
i was quickly corrected.

it was just this little guy. they played with him for the better part of an hour. holding him. watching him. we had a few errands to run so we set him free (in the front yard) with promises to look for him when we returned. lucky him.
when we returned, we took a picnic lunch out to the hickory tree in the back yard. it wasn't but a few minutes before they had found him...nestled in the brick pavers around the hydrangea.

"it's him!!it's him!!!!!" they were ecstatic.

they patiently waited and he did in fact come hoping out right!
a big. fat. toad.

they couldn't believe that our one and only frog had returned to where they had captured him!!
i didn't have the heart to correct them. after a while, they realized that it was a different toad. 
he was quite friendly.


 mom, can we keep him? i think he would make a great pet.
