My dear brothers all share a special fetish for frogs and toads (among many other amphibious creatures). One of their favorite things to do is to go frog hunting together! The secret to a successful frog hunt is that you HAVE to go out right after or during an evening rain shower. Armies of them hop out to enjoy the cool, wet pavement after a long hot day in the sun. Just as they have situated themselves cozily in a nice muddy puddle, “SPLASH!” they’re gone, scooped up in the palms of an excited 4 (or 23) year old and on their way to a shabby little kiddy pool.
I love this shot of Eli, John and Cael’s scruffy hands. All three of them are aspiring scientists at heart; Each one incredibly intelligent and completely unique in his own inserts. Their curiosity is constantly growing; I love how active their minds are! I really enjoy watching their skills and interests develop.

Isn’t Summer glorious?
