the toads? they follow us.
While enjoying the cozy, shady yard of a friend my children spied a toad in her window well. My son hopped right into that well, grabbed the toad and had a new playmate for a while (until the toad relieved himself on him...). The caregiver that my son is gently ushered the toad right back to his dwelling place and said, "good-bye."
I'm thinking of dubbing this the "Summer of Toads."
