We had a lovely overnight visitor at our house this weekend: Will the turtle.
We had the traditional Turtle Sleepover. Grandma found Will in her driveway, and brought him over to our house for the sleepover. Andy has been SO happy, always wanting to rush out to the garden to check on him. Joey was fine with it, but not terribly excited. He liked to pick Will up, turn him upside-down, and hand him to me.
Will stayed in a nice box and had yummy turnip greens, tomatoes, and cheese for supper, a bowl of water for splashing and drinking, and plenty of leaves to hide under. We went for a long walk to gather the leaves. We got to pet Will and talk with Will.
This morning, Will was driven home to Grandma's house and released back into the woods.
Thank you, Will. Do come by for another sleepover soon!
