My buddy Tad

So a few weeks ago the neighbor kids were very excited. "Tadpoles!" We could hear them shouting from a block away. We grabbed the girls and walked to the shallow puddles and sure enough found some tadpoles swimming around. I scooped up a half dozen of them and brought them home. The next day was hot out and all of the water evaporated from the puddle/pond. Not a good thing to happen if you are a tadpole.

The 6 we caught are doing well at the house. They say it takes about 6 weeks to turn into a frog so we're about halfway there. You can see from the photo of this little guy that he is sprouting some legs. They really are fascinating.

See ya,
