The Kofford Family relocates to Colorado after 40 years as Californians. In December of 2007, Grandma Lorraine is diagnosed with Stage 4 brain cancer. Sadly, she passed away on Dec. 26th, 2008 after a year long courageous battle. Follow our journey as we keep Lorraine's memory alive, and as we learn to appreciate that each day we are given, is a gift to be enjoyed!

Turtle Bay

Yesterday a gal from a nearby neighborhood came by and asked it we might like to house her turtles in our pond. A family member had given them to her, and they would not cohabitate with her fish, so she was looking for a good home for them. We were happy to take them and have a little bit of wildlife to join the tadpoles. The Painted Turtles appear happy so far, and hopefully they will keep mosquitoes away. The kids had fun helping release them, and now we will be on the lookout for sunning turtles on the island!

Preston's turtle loves the warmth of sunlight (even artificial) so I'm sure your new additions will be out often. I wonder how they will like the cold and snowy weather this winter? Loved hearing about your fun Independence Weekend!
