We were working on a science experiment outside today when the kids discovered a lizard. Well, of course that meant that they had to capture it and call it their pet, at least for a day.
We still had a box outside that we had left for a baby bunny we were concerned about so the kids set it up as the lizard's home. Yes, they knew it could leave at any time but they figured he would surely want to return each day to such luxurious accommodations.
I love that my totally girly daughter doesn't get squirmy about catching lizards! It is good to have a nature-loving big brother.
