so Jordy, the girl next door, has some turtles. she HAD some tadpoles, but found out you can't put them in the same bowl with turtles. so she has some well-fed turtles, and the kids were all playing with them on Saturday. i tried to upload video of it, but blogger wouldn't allow it and I suspect youtube won't be easy either. it's been blocked here for days (wonder why?). so for now, here's a still photo of the amphibian fun, taken after a tea party had broken out.
while i'm here, and it IS still only 6:30 am, here're some more photos.
e is a scary tiger, on our new(-ish) dragon rug.

FYI, I've since gotten a haircut
