The picture above is "Baby" holding a toad she found in the yard. My kids were impressed with her boldness and all wanted to hold the toad. Problem being... they all looked like this...
In case you don't speak Clara facial expressionesse she is saying "Are you kidding me? I am not touching that thing!!" They all tried and tried, and the poor toad got dropped and dropped. My kids could NOT keep from flinching every time they touched the toad. Finally Noah stepped forward and said, "I want to hold it." Now those of you that know Noah, know that he is not known for his bravery or willingness to try new things! He kept saying, "Wait, wait, I gotta get my mind set." Then what do you know....Noah! Holding a toad! It seems like a very strange proud mommy moment, but it was one! I proclaimed him the toad holding winner of the city mice! Of course then Matthew wanted to try again....Poor Ricky just couldn't bring himself to hold the toad without a napkin. I told him I was NOT getting him a napkin! So he looked like this..
We have a few more days here... maybe "Baby" can teach him some toad holding tricks yet.
God is good. All the time.
