Saved 10 Lives

Yesterday, while simply relaxing and enjoying the beautiful day...all of a sudden there was an emergency we had to take care of.  It affected 9 lives.  We had to save them.  No, they weren't kitties.  No, they weren't puppies.  No, they weren't a way they were.  They were babies!  They were baby frogs.  Ribbett, ribbett, ribbett.  Maybe they were toads but nevertheless they were part of the froggy family and they had gotten lost from their home.  They somehow found themselves in the bottom of one of our window wells.  I think we found the mommy and her babies but no daddy.  My husband took a small ladder into the window well. Poor little babies were terrified.  They were jumpin' all around and did not want to be disturbed.  I grabbed a deep bucket and one by one each baby frog was saved.  My husband took them to the prairie behind us and let them loose on the rocks. jumped right into the pond.  The others were safe now back into their natural habitat.  I should have had my camera.  It was cute to see each baby frog jump out of the bucket and onto the the rocks.  What a beautiful day.  We saved 9 creations yesterday.  Today, one more was added to the bunch.
Enjoy mother nature's creations.
