Turtle talk.

Turtles.

We have decided that Kenna and Michal look just like turtles every time they put on their life jackets. The life jackets come up to their chins and their heads stick out, just like, well, a turtle.

They looked like turtles holding the flag while we skied.

And they looked like turtles sitting in the boat.

And standing on the dock.

And then tonight, while we were making s'mores, Eric spied a real turtle sticking its head out the water, which meant Andy and Bennett both told Greer, their younger brother, to jump in the lake and catch it.

So Greer jumped in the lake and swam toward the turtle, which made us all laugh because we were positive he'd never be able to catch a turtle.

But he did catch it.

Which just confirmed two things for us. First, Greer is an exceptionally-fast swimmer and, after seeing a turtle up close, Kenna and Michal really do look just like turtles in their life jackets.

  1. Heh! They DO look like turtles!

    Aren't life jackets sooo uncomfortable? I think it's time us Mums came up with something better and more comfortable for our littles!
