Baby deer

This little baby was playing in our yard and running up and down the drive way the other day. There were two more that were a little bit bigger, but they ran off into the woods before I could grab my camera.

Turtle Taxi to the rescue

Today, I found a new use for my preschool teacher rolling cart.....

No, we were not playing around with a SNAPPING turtle! You see, what happened was...while we were mowing and working in the yard this morning, we saw this large snapping turtle making his way up the front field. THEN THE TRACTOR CAME to rake the cut hay to get it ready to bale. IF you know me, well then you know that I had to do something! We first tried a large piece of plywood in which my husband grabbed the turtle by the tail and flung him onto. But he slid off, and boy was he mad (the turtle not the husband)! Then I remembered my cart in the garage and sent Taylor after it. We laid it over and Brian used a pole to scoot ch and shimmy him in. Then he was REALLY mad! If he'd only realized that we were saving him from being squished by the tractor tires or even being whipped up into a nice round bale of hay, then maybe he would have been a little happier to cooperate! Though, he was quiet happy when we did make it to the pond behind our house and let him out! (And yes, I did Clorox and clean the cart afterwards.)

This is our front field after all was said and done.

Beautiful Butterfly

I had to look twice to see if it was real!
