I think I'll go for a walk outside now

We had a good rain yesterday evening and night.

This morning, the air was clear and fresh and the world was new, so I headed out for a walk.

I only took a few steps at a time, because there were ever so many worms to save!

These are just a few of my new friends that I could tell weren't ready to dry out and die.

At least not yet.

I'll be digging these friends back up soon, because I have a good feeling they'll bait me some beautiful fish.

I loved reading (and seeing) this. My little guy saved worms all the way to school today! The hubs and I laughed from our perch on the front porch (the school is only three houses down the street) as we watch him do his little, "6 year old run" for a few steps, stop, pitch over, toss a worm into the grass, run, stop, pitch over, toss a worm into the grass, repeat... it was great!

This cracked me up! The other day I opened the garage door and thought, SPRING! Then I saw the worms on the driveway. Yuck, a part of spring I forgot about!

Holy wow. That is a lot of worms! So glad you took a picture and shared your day with us. Fantastically fun to meet you this week : )

Katie, your worm rescue seemed noble to me. I even thought of using it in a talk (instead of that story about the fisherman throwing starfish back into the ocean). Then I read the part about you saying you'd leave them there to get nice and fat till you could dig them up again for bait. Now it just seems evil.

Lola,
I'm glad I have the heart of a 6 year-old. I like being that connected to life.

Anita,
When I got to school this morning, I couldn't believe how many worms were in our parking lot. Some outstretched seven or eight inches. I heard once that people have died because their breaks have been too slick after going through a giant swarm of bugs. I wondered this morning if these giants could cause me the same fate. I maneuvered as best I could around those guys just in case.

Becky,
I'm happy to share with you since you've been so eager to share with us.

Casey,
I'll have you know my intentions were very noble. I even wondered if I did enough. It wasn't until I saw the worms at school that I even had the evil thought of using them as bait. But I'm sure I'll just stick with a lure, because it'll hurt me to mistreat my new friends.
