Little Miss Meanie LOVES catching frogs. While it did start out with the tadpoles we attempted to raise in the kitchen, it really took off when Mr. Meanie bush hogged the field a few weeks ago. He saw a TON of frogs (and snakes) and would fly off the tractor to catch them for her. The most were concentrated around a drainage stream and this is where we still find them although I am sure they wished they lived somewhere else.
So every day, often two or three times, we go out and catch frogs. While Dad prefers using his hands and relying on stealth; Mom prefers a net (especially when balancing JPel in the other arm). I think my way is better since one day we were able to find 7 frogs while Mr. Meanie only found 5... but alas, it is not a competition.
And today I whipped up this Brindille & Twig t-shirt dress for our frog catching adventure. Since I only ordered fat halves and had used some of the fabric to make undies, I had to pieces together the frog dress but it still looks great! Audrey was very happy to wear it. It is sized at 4T so a little big on her but I am confident that she will fit well in it by next spring when we go out and catch frog eggs.
have a great day!
