Nature, Schmature...

if you look really, really close you will see the innocent eye of a lonely baby bird.
he is hiding for fear he will meet an untimely death, as did his sweet sister yesterday...

meet remington.
bird killer.
baby bird KILLER!

(the face of a killer...)
(the paw of a killer...)

i know what your thinking. it's natural for a bird dog to kill birds.
i understand this.
but just cuz it's natural, doesn't mean i like it.
in fact, i was NOT happy with said bird dog.

so for now, until my sweet babies take flight
he is banned to the backyard.

Masyn's Very First School Project!

masyn was so excited to hae a school project just like the big kids. and being one of my most creative kids she knew exactly what she wanted. although we had to alter some things (like the "real bark" for the tree trunk) but we were able to incorporate her scripture and her fairy door.

thanks to auntie and the cricut, it wasn't too hard for her to put together. i think it turned out super great and she learned a lot about her family's history.
