"Mama! Mama! Come see what we found!"
Discovering this little guy created some serious excitement.
I've never seen a turtle move so fast. For real.
But, come to think of it, I did overhear Lilly say after I was heading back inside, "Yet's step on him, Ian." Later, they ran back inside to tell me they guessed the turtle was "just dead."
Coincidence? I think not.
Kidding. Don't jump to conclusions. I have two very kind children. The turtle was fine, he had just retreated into his shell.
I would run my fool turtle legs off, close up shop, and pee and poo (yes, that happened shortly after this photo was taken [sigh]), too with these two after me. She has a sword!
