The boys have started walking around the pond to try to catch frogs this year. They've never had an interest before, but this year it's all the rage~especially when we have people over.

Noah was crouched by the ponds edge the other day while we were looking at the Koi and he scooped up a frog. I thought it looked weird wiggling in his hands, but hey, what do I know about frogs? Not much.

He plopped it down on the driveway and we realized it still had it's tail. That was cool, so as I looked closer I can see that something is really wrong with it. Tell me what you think.
It was retaining water something terrible. The poor thing couldn't really hop or move. I have never seen such a thing, and really I hope not to again. After we showed it to everyone Noah gently put it back in the pond where he got it. The poor thing.

Uh...yeah, that's weird. I'm intrigued and horrified all at once.
