One of the mom's, actually Micah's best pal's mom, suggested having tadpoles in class to let the children observe their development into frogs.
So what did Micah and Mommy do while Max took his nap?
We went out to the park and hunted a few (a bunch actually) of tadpoles and will be bringing them to school tomorrow.
We checked out two of the fish pond, but found no tadpoles. Then we went further to a fountain and found a whole bunch of them in shallow waters. Micah was so excited when we were catching the tadpoles that he called his friend on the spot and reported the happy news.
This is really working out pretty good for Micah too, because it gives him something to look forward to in sharing with his friends in school. It also reduces his separation anxieties in the morning when getting ready to leave the house.
(Sorry, in Mommy's excitement to go get the tadpoles she forgot to bring the camera. No shots of Micah in action, nor of our lovely park's fish ponds and fountain.)
