What Are Little Boys Made Of?

What are little boys made of?
Frogs and Snails and Puppy dogs tails,
That's what little boys are made of.

What about Snakes?

Isaac and Jacob went sloshing through the stream and swamp today. They were rewarded with finding three garter snakes. Which they promptly brought up in buckets for me to see. I was pretty impressed with the small ones. But, when Isaac picked up a really BIG one, I took a couple of steps back. It was one of the fattest garter snakes I have ever seen. What a brave boy I have!!

What is it about spring that brings out the hunters and gathers in little boys? Maybe its because of the long winter months. There are less slimy and slithery things to pick up and examine when the snow blankets the ground. I am blessed though, not only do they pick up creepy crawlies to show me (quiet often shoving them up close to my face so I can get a good look), but they come bearing fistfuls of pussy willows and dandelions! Life with boys is so sweet!

  1. Wow! That's a big one! Isaac's afraid of spiders though? Seems like there is a huge size difference. But there is definitely something creepy about spiders!!!!
