(Mostly) Wordless Wednesday: Turtle on Trial

Over the weekend, The Six-Year-Old put her turtle on trial. She has not yet made the full list of his nefarious deeds public, nor has the jury — comprised of various dragons, cats, and of course, reformed Super Criminal Grace Elvis — decided his sentence. But based on what I found when I cleaned house this morning, things don’t look good for the little guy.

Here's hoping it's a short sentence. (Photo: Shala Howell)

Here’s hoping it’s a short sentence. Maybe just a fine. Or some community service. We could put him to work cleaning up the paper slicks that keep appearing around here. (Photo: Shala Howell)

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book, Did Dinosaurs Have Belly Buttons?, is currently planned for release in 2018. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, chatting about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.

    In my life (so far) of almost three-score and ten I have had more success shortening my hair than shortening my sentence.

    Go to da’ penalty box, hang his head in shame… (Slapshot). Of course, don’t tell her where that came from!
