365/99 ~ Lizard Hunters ~

I think I've mentioned before that I have several young friends who love to visit...it's not uncommon to find them rolling around in our front yard or riding their scooters up our driveway.

The other day, I heard some commotion on my front porch, and turned to see these 2 young men hunting lizards.  I asked them with a smile (and hidden exasperation) not to LAY thier bodies across my spider plant (poor spidey!).  Then I crouched down and listened intently as they told me with wide eyes that lizards actually lived under that chest on my porch!  Really?  I love their enthusiasm for life...we could all take a lesson from that!

  1. You are very patient, I love that you see these little guys as something to learn from not an annoyance. I can't say I would be able to do the same.

  4. You're so cool! I bet those kids will all remember the cool woman who didn't get mad at them for playing...or in this case, hunting lizards!...on her property!
