Teeny Tiny Friends

We were pretty excited when we first saw that we had tadpoles in our pond! Vincent and I immediately went to the library and got books about the life cycle of a frog. We learned that it takes 12 weeks for them to grow, get front legs, lose their tails and eventually become a froglet.

We had TONS of tadpoles. We also have some goldfish in the pond. Finally, the little guys got some front legs. Eek! Almost froglets! Then...they all disappeared! We thought maybe the fish figured out how to eat them. We still have a million tadpoles in our other pond with no fish, but I was still sad.

Nothing happened to our little tadpoles... as it turns out, we have a thousand tiny froglets! Vincent and his little friend had a ton of fun finding them and caching them. Don't freak out, we didn't put any in jars or anything.

 I didn't crop this photo so you can see how little they really are. IMG_9941 

 The search is on. 

Anyway, I hope you guys are having a lovely week so far.
