Worms, glorious worms

Setting up the habitat...

Adding the worms and their dirt...


They are all snug in their home now, residing on Paxton's dresser (along with the praying mantis egg, the ants, and the caterpillars - who by the way, have more than doubled in size already) Taddy the tadpole is still in the kitchen, and as I've grown strangely attached to him, he may just stay there. Paxton is still waiting for his leopard frog tadpoles, and trying not to get his hopes up every time they walk up to the mailbox. So far, all is going well, although I'm a little concerned about the praying mantis egg case. It was on the table by the drafty door for several days, then took a flying leap off the dresser when Spencer dropped the remote control off the top bunk. Time will tell whether or not I'll be a grandmother to 100 praying mantis babies.
