Ari and Ted ...

Ari and Ted are two of the dearest little boys that you could ever hope to meet.  Recently we had a day at the farm that was just Ari and Ted ... very special indeed. 

While we walked and tree climbed and adventured to places we hadn't before, including a walk to the convent and through the art gallery in the St. Helliers store ... the thing that was most awe inspiring for these two boys to discover, was this sleeping blue tongue lizard.   The day was cool, and it lay in the sun, not moving at all to the point where we wondered whether it was dead.   Looking long enough, we could just see a faint movement in it's chest, showing us it was breathing.   Ari moved in for a closer peek and his shadow blocked the sun just for a moment.   That was time enough for the lizard to feel the cool and get uncomfortable and move. Then we saw it was alive.  Fascinating indeed.
