Just wanted to update everyone on our new pets. Yes I said pets. Steven decided he wanted some more tadpoles, so after church a couple of weeks ago he headed down to the little river where we have our baptism services and caught 2 more tadpoles.
So, we started out with 1:
You can sort of see his little back legs
And of course it is growing:
Can you tell the legs are getting bigger?
He/she has front legs now.
A shot with all three of them
The one on the right is the first one we got, he/she is older
Look at those looong legs. Really looking like it is a frog.
Same day, close ups
(because I finally learned how to take close-ups
on my camera)
Notice the one still doesn't have front legs.
I love this picture, you can barely tell there is still a tail there.
He/she gets up on the rocks a lot more now and is using
legs more, tail less.
Still no front legs on this one
Not sure if you can tell but this one (the oldest/
one we had longest) has its head out of the water.
Once again I think mommy is getting more of a kick out of this than the children. In fact they were really still the one day, and I got so worried they were dying. I fed them, because I wasn't sure when Steven did last (He is very busy getting prepared for his first day of college Monday) and they perked up.
I am linking this up to Science Sunday hosted by Ticia over at Adventures in Mommydom. Head on over to check out what others are experimenting with/learning.
