I found this little snake when I opened my garage door yesterday. I thought it was a baby and immediately thought of its siblings that must be crawling nearby (I am a bit scared of snakes by the way)… The girl children were at their grandparents so I took photos and moved the snake down the hill, away from the threat of my tires. That evening, I showed the pictures to Finn and she said, “It’s a ring neck snake! My friend Kayla had one as a pet and brought it to the Montessori school! It’s not a baby!” I’m so proud of my girl.
The Skull Girls found a dead raccoon in the creek in our back yard over spring break. They couldn’t get the skull but were able to dislodge some of its teeth.
One night, Smoky, hearing noises in the wilderness of the kitchen-garden, went out and surprised with his flashlight a starveling, an animal long, gray, red-eyed and slavering, mad with cold and hunger. A stray dog, the others said, or something; but only Smoky had seen it, and Smoky wondered.
