What luck!

Today, even though it was Memorial Day, I HAD to go to work...on look at this desk and you'll know why... Yes, I am coming dangerously close to being buried alive by the paperwork that is quickly piling up on my desk. It's times like these I think it'd be better if there were three or four of me. The good news is...I have free afternoons all week this week so I plan to work 10 or 11 hours a day and to be all caught up by the end of the week. Preschool graduation is this weekend and all of the details for that event MUST be completed. So, even though I was at work today, which is by far not my favorite place to be on my day off, I was lucky enough to see this...In all my 41 years I have never seen a bird leave it's nest. The birds in our nest here at home are long gone and the nest sits empty. I took a break today and decided to check on our birds that had nested on the eaves trough.Look how large baby Robin #4 looks...perhaps he was overfed? Anyway...even though his siblings seemed more than happy to stay...he was ready to fly the coupe! One last meal from mom and he was on his way! Get Ready! Get Set! Go!!!! And then there were three...Much more room in the nest now :) The little guy was off and running...and running... and running... It was by far the cutest thing ever! Just be grateful I didn't include all 47 pictures I took ;)

Until next time...

Is the mother of the baby Robin can teach him with a whistling, not to run on the middle of the road.

I love the baby birdie pictures. Post them all, it would be fine with us.
