My Funny Kids

by Mollie

One morning Ben came running into the house, very excited and shouting “Mommy mommy! A snake in our yard! Come an’ look!”  I was pretty confident that he had NOT seen a snake, but figured I’d better check out whatever he was so worked up about.

Apparently he had never observed a snail before and he was COMPLETELY FASCINATED.  He wanted to know all about them.  Especially the trail of slime.

Look at that snail, running for his life.  Don’t worry, we politely returned him to a bush when we were done observing (we only kill spiders, and sometimes ants).  I know my mom is laughing right now because I used to tell her, “Snails are my friends!” and make little homes for them.

PS- I was planning to add a bunch more funnies to this post, but WordPress is giving me trouble this week and won’t save drafts, so I lost a bunch of work. 🙁  Hopefully more blogs coming soon!

    SO CUTE! I love when they get to watch nature and ask lots of questions. Jacob is into earwigs right now. He calls them snappers and says “Watch out, they will snap your finga’s!” lol.

    Yes, I was smiling about you and your “friends”. I was also smiling because it reminded my of a walk I went on with Aunt De when she was visiting last summer. She got down on her hands and knees to inspect a snail crossing the sidewalk just like Ben. Evidently snails are not common in Denver.

    Mo, these are so precious of the little kiddos!!
    Awww Benjer and his “smake”, now THAT is adorable.
    I like the picture where Nata’s hair is hanging down, all golden and wavy, and it points to the snail, too, that’s pretty cool. Caught my eye right away =D Awesome job!!
