Pet Turtle

My kids love box turtles! They had a baby one in a tank for a week and they fed watered and bathed it every day. As well as carried it around until it got so hungry it took a taste of finger!

But that hasn't curbed their interest in these "cute" turtles. They found one today in our field and had a blast carry him to the porch in the little wagon and letting him/her run around the sand box with them.

When it was time to come in for lunch, we put the turtle back where they found it. We can play with him again next time he comes around. I think they are partial to the rotten apples in our yard. Our apple tree has really cam back to life after that harsh ice storm pruning! I have to admit, they are kinda cute, and they eat the apples before they attract bees, what's not to love?
