FROG WEEK DAY # 5

FROG WEEK DAY #5

 It’s the second to last day of our Frog Week and we’re off to meet our last frog of the week! We’re going exploring in our very own neighborhood to see if we can meet this loud frog! The best part is they are one of the first signs of spring and we can all use a little spring right now!
