  4. Love those sweet toes. What a beautiful snake - although I'd prefer to not have him as a swimming partner! xo R

  5. I don't think I have seen a ringed snake before. We have had quite a few snakes lately; I think they are looking for water. I just wish some of the ones I see weren't poisonous. MJ, I hope you have a great weekend.

  7. Remember what you told me about bees? Well, same goes for me but with snakes. I may not be as advanced as you are at conquering your fear. : )

  10. Siri- Oh goodness no. Though this little guy is not poisonous, I read that they do give off a horrible odor when scared. He was harmless, but I did have to keep the kids from picking him up!!

  11. oooh, sent shivers up my spine! I'm not fond of snakes no matter how small they are :) But looks like your little one is intrigued.

  15. Part of me thinks he's cute, while the other part of me shudders. What is it about snakes?

  16. Eek. Thats a surprise! I am loving your cooling header picture up there!! It looks like a fun place to visit. We have a local park that has a water play area kinda similar, but it is always pretty packed on hot days when we'd like to go the most.

  24. we love snakes, especially sweet baby ring necks. we would have played with him for awhile before letting him go. i have come to enjoy snakes because of my reptile loving son (why unschooling/homeschooling is so awesome - I have learned more in the last decade...)

    thanks for the visit! i am so glad to meet another florida unschooling mom!

    your blog looks great, i subscribed and look forward to reading through it!

    have a great weekend!
