Completion

It's my last day of post-a-day June.  It's been fun trying to figure out something to write about - but I'm sure you're all sick of me by now.  I think I'm actually sick of me.  So for my final June post, I'll share one of our (this obviously does not include me) favorite things - backyard birdies! (They really are adorable - but only from a safe distance.  Laugh all you want - I can't hear you.)

Rob, being Mr. Nature, loves to find and show baby birds to Maddie and Jude.  This year we actually had two little ones hopping around - and for the first time, the kids weren't scared to hold them.




They really were cute little guys, and the kids were sad to let them go.  Apparently, the birds were also sad to leave because later that day one of them wandered inside for a visit and bathroom break.  Jude thought it was hysterical that the bird was just hanging out in the stuffed animal bin. His exact words upon discovering the bird were, "Whaaaaaaaaaaat? (giggle giggle giggle) We've got a real problem here, Mom!"

So we said one more goodbye, and threw him out.  Don't worry, bird lovers, he landed safely.




Thanks, again, to all of you who have followed this month - I've actually enjoyed this more than I thought I would.

I know I looked forward to your daily posts. I have had friends do this before and I lose track or interest but not with you. I'm excited to see the pictures you get from all of your hard work. I think you should keep it going.
