The days seem to be passing quickly lately. Both of the last 2 weeks, I've found myself wondering how Friday had already arrived. This is good. Moving on toward the warm weather is just what we need.
The geese and ducks recently arrived at the pond out back. I watch them from my kitchen. They swim in whatever water is available at the time. I'm sure they don't really get this weather either. Frozen pond one day, half frozen the next. Today I've noticed that several of them are trying to take shelter along the brushy banks in this nasty weather. Poor things. They probably weren't expecting this weird weather either.
The heron is back. Egad! If you know me, you know he's not my favorite. I have an irrational fear about the herons. This guy doesn't seem as large and menacing as some. His dad is probably the one I'm afraid of.
There he is, in the lower right corner, lurking right outside my fence. Look at that sharp beak. LOL.
In other news - Spring break begins this Friday. Bryan will be leaving for a trip to Europe on Friday, with the school band. I have a few odds and ends to take care of, to make sure he's ready to go. I'm a bit nervous to be sending him off. It's his first trip out of the country without us. I need prayer. :) Just kidding. Can't wait to hear about his trip and see photos.
Here's a photo of Jadyn from yesterday morning. Gotta love the style of a 4 year old.
