They sound like turtle eggs to me. Judging by the fact that they were by a lake and the small number of them I would say they are some species of slider. Hatchling turtles are not hard to raise, the commonly available turtle food called Reptomin is great for small turtles. It is available in all pet stores and most grocery stores. It is perfect for hatchling turtles. It comes in a pellet form and softens up in the water. The little guys can just bite off pieces of the floating pellets. Once they are larger you can start feeding them small fish. You can keep them in a small aquarium with a few inches of water and a land area so they can get out of the water. Put a basking light over the land area and they should do just fine. It is a good thing that you decided to incubate them before the area was flooded. Flooding is a major cause of egg death in aquatic reptiles that do not lay their eggs far enough above the high water line. Well good luck with your little guys and I hope they do well for you!
