Good-bye Cricket

Now that the warmer weather is here (hopefully to stay), I finally convinced the kids to let the lizard go!  Everyone has lost interest in him, and I was the only one taking care of him, and I didn't want him in the first place.

Both kids wanted to hold him before we released him, and surprisingly Bennett was the brave one.  She reached right in and tried to grab him.  The little guy was so fast though, so Steve had to catch him initially.

Releasing him in our Japanese maple tree in our backyard
Cricket was so happy soaking in the sun and fresh air!

Though the kids were a little sad to see him go, we all know he is much happier, and will do better in his natural habitat.  It is also nice to know that he is living in our backyard somewhere.  Good-bye buddy!
