The other day my husband called me out to the driveway. There was a box turtle just beginning to cross near the garage. My first thoughts were of my father and Dan. And I wondered what our girls would do if they encountered a turtle.
Here is the turtle, idly walking onto the driveway.
A REALLY close look at the turtle.
The girls did not paw at the turtle nor try to turn it over. They were content to sniff it from all angles. When Ellie started to nudge it with her nose, I decided that was enough and sent the girls inside.
The turtle quickly emerged and started across the driveway once more. I decided to help the turtle cross and placed it near the edge of the woods. I hope the turtle will decide to live in our woods. What a treat.
The past weeks have brought pain and grief to many people, including some of my favorite bloggers. So this week I ask that all of us in the blogsphere lift up our thoughts and send healing energy to our friends in distress.
Have a safe and wonderful weekend as we celebrate our freedom!
