My Turtle!

This summer we had an unexpected guest ... a little box turtle! Although turtles are not the furry, cuddly type, Hayden quickly warmed up to our newest backyard friend, exclaiming "it's mine." He talked and talked and talked to it, but finally got frustrated with its lack of conversation skills ... we decided to paint a picture of the turtle and then go back and visit it for more discussion! :) I made the outlines and Hayden painted them in! Didn't he do a great job!

Since the turtle got in to the backyard somehow but obviously could not find its way out, Daddy and Hayden set the turtle free one evening, and Hayden insists that we pray for him often!
