a portrait of my son, once a week, every week in 2015

Jimmy: Collecting earthworms with Daddy.

Why? Well... we found a turtle a few weekends ago, two now, and not just any turtle but an alligator snapping turtle. They are not endangered, but they are not to be taken lightly. Also they end up being huge, so, no we will not be keeping the turtle nor will we be passing it on to anyone other than the zoo, if they'll have it. Anyway... we found the turtle, newly hatched, and we decided that if it ate what we gave it, we would look after it until, well, we're not sure, perhaps over the winter, perhaps only another week. Perhaps we'll only keep it until Daddy and Jimmy can no longer find any worms outside our place.

    1. It did! It lets them die, then it breaks them up and eats them - it's soooo cool. There's a post coming with photos of the turtle (it's such a cute little thing).
