Who doesn’t love a cute armadillo? Actually, I don’t think I’ve ever seen an armadillo that wasn’t either scurrying across the street or, forgive me, roadkill. When we first moved to Texas I once swerved to miss one and almost ran off the road. It was quite a shocker for someone who has only seen rabbits and squirrels running around!
Lorelai enjoyed painting her armadillo blue and purple. We weren’t able to finish it up until after my book club meeting last night. Feel free to print below, and enjoy!
