Summer Friends

Last summer we had a tarantula living in our front yard.  It took care of all the crickets at night.  We named her Tortuga, and we would sometimes capture bugs for her to eat.  It was amazing to see how fast she moved.  If you put a bug near her home, it would be gone in seconds!  If you blinked, you missed it!  We miss Tortuga this summer.

However, when Brian was out pruning an apple tree, he found a dove's nest!  So this is our new friend this summer!  Welcome pretty little dove and baby dovettes!  We shall find you all appropriate names soon.
