Maybe We Do Need A Dog

Spring is here, and today we were getting the garden ready for planting. We found a worm, and Amelia immediately picked it up. Everyone was inspecting the worm when Jeff asked what the worm's name was. Amelia was quick to answer.

Seriously? Elizabeth? Who names a worm Elizabeth? We were laughing. Then they all started petting the worm.

Eventually Jeff tried to rescue Elizabeth from certain doom by putting her back in the dirt and letting her dig her way (frantically) underground and away from the children.

They were all very interested in watching her, and they defeated her efforts to get away more than once. Most notably when Isaac picked her up for a little lovin'.

We were laughing, but ewww! Perhaps we do need to get a dog.

You, my dear friend, do not need anything else that eats and poops! lol We just got a fish tank...Andrew loves it. We feed them once a day and he gets to watch them safely from the other side of a thick pane of glass:).

I have a dog you're free to borrow for even a few hours. Three boys would be the perfect playmates for Henry and he'd definitely outmatch their energy. Think about it. We both win.
