Salamanders

We were up in the Berkshires last week for a few days. There are these tiny salamanders everywhere, AKA red efts. The boys are obsessed with them. They had a whole colony and were keeping them captive. One day they spent hours and hours (6 to be exact) outside playing with these salamanders. We’ve decided that maybe they will disrupt the whole atmosphere by hoarding so many of them. They made a whole space for them with tracks and play areas. It was really creative and actually kind of cool that they came up with this all on their own. They made these long tracks out of sticks and leaves and moss and then let the salamanders free to run through them. 

As sad as I am sometimes I am also so happy watching them just be kids and enjoying themselves. I am so happy they have these opportunities and so happy they take advantage of them. I hope they remember these times in the Berkshires for the rest of their lives.
