Making nests and neighbors

Cyan and the two neighbor girls found this Song Sparrow’s nest in their backyard.  This nest was untouched by the tractor lawn mower that went right over it… but I think the mama was scared off.

What sweet stories and discoveries they made!

How sweet! Wow, Val, She looks so much like you. My girls are collecting the egg shells they find fallen around the neighborhood. My 6 yo says, "Just in case the mama comes back and needs them again..." Be still my heart!

What a priceless moment to share together.

Erika that is SO sweet! I just love the way little kids minds think. <3

They were gone this afternoon. I think their chickens ate them :( But the girls seemed fine with it. Cyan is really starting to learn the circle of life from these farmgirl adventures. She is seeming more and more ok with things that happen in nature.

Blessings,

Val
