A few years ago we acquired a snapping turtle from a daycare friend. He had found the turtle at his mother's work and knew that we would love it. I think his name is Dash...or Bolt...it's changed a few times and I just called him turtle. The daycare kids have loved the turtle. Turtle, like The Boy, has grown at unbelievable speed this past year. He was so happy to have room to swim. I tried to get a picture of him swimming but he lived up to his name and was gone in a flash. I think I could hear him shouting as he swam down the river, "WAHOO! I'M FREE!"
