I hear Ike in the back getting his boots on and then:
"Mom!!!! A toad!!!!"
"A toad Mom!!!! A toad!!!"
"On the floor!!!!!"
"Where did it come from?"
"My boot!!! Get it Mom its huge!!!!"
I pull over and park the car and find the toad. It was a beauty! About as big as the palm of my hand. And it was pretty mellow as I picked it up (must have something to do with being squished by Ike's foot), it deigned to be examined. I showed it to the other kids and let it go in a bush of flowers. It hopped off.
What a way to start the day!
