Went On A Nature Walk Today

The weather was so beautiful today we just had to go out... So Kelly and I went over to the nature trail and looked for some birds... I had gotten out 2 books from the library: Florida's Fabulous Birds & Florida's Waterbirds. We saw a woodpecker with red on his head but we couldn't get a picture of him. Then we saw three hawks flying over, one came over with his wings wide open right above us - again we couldn't get a picture : ( I don't know how you all get such beautiful bird pictures, they move to quickly! There were a number of fellows fishing today, It looked so peaceful watching them fish - I could have sat there all day!

All of those photos just look so peaceful. What a nice day to go for a nature walk. It is not easy to get photos of the some of the birds that we were studying. I remember sitting outdoors for over an hour just to get a shot of particular bird that we were looking for. It is about that time here to get our bird book out and the camera and binoculars. I am hoping to see some new birds in the new neighborhood that we live in. So happy to hear that y'all had such a nice day.

CHeck out this website, it's a live cam of a Barn Owl and she is hatching eggs. Another egg should hatch sometime today or tonight. We are having a great time watching it.
I am sorry to hear of your homeschooling struggles with Kelly. Dylan has some hard times also. I am glad you took a day off to enjoy nature. We do that every so often also.
Has Kelly read the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series yet? Dylan is on the 5th book now and is loving it.
Will have to read more and catch up with your life!!
