I can't believe it.
The boy has done it.
Using his handy "cricket catcher" (otherwise known as a strainer) he has succesfully nabbed a lizard. And a baby lizard at that. I confessed to him that the only reason I told him to first catch the lizard before we talked about him keeping one was because I never thought he would actually catch one... Well, I underestimated my son.
My husband has also surprised me. He is supporting Nathan's new pet and even volunteered to help Nathan find ants and bugs to feed his new pet. Oh, the lizard's name is Quick. How appropriate. :)
