"THE NET" was a true companion to the Alsop team and as we headed out on adventures, normally to the pond one was always found saying...."Don't forget THE NET" After 3 long years it now shows rips, algae, rust and bends. The shower rod with a pet store net duck taped to its end will now be laid to rest. However, let's not forget all the wonderful things it has caught in its life.
It began its journey capturing tadpoles and quickly graduated to frogs and fish. In its later years it captured, butterflies, dragonflies, a toad and most recently even a baby bunny. As Kylee runs through the door, "Mom you'll never guess what we've caught!" I continue to be amazed and surprised.
The girls need assistance from "THE NET" for those creatures but just use their hands for worms, Roley pollies, crickets, fireflies, slugs, caterpillars or any other creepy crawler....and I once thought this stuff was just for boys!!! WOW was I kidding myself. Unfortunately, despite how much catching is going on there are still no pictures of me holding any of them and hopefully never will be.
Here are a few pictures from our most recent adventures. The bunny was an absolute highlight as Kylee sat outside for at least an hour holding and taking care of it like Kylee would. I wonder if capturing adventures will continue in Virginia or if we will find a hidden pond close to our new home...time to move on to new adventures.
