Garrett saw all of the birds learning to fly the next day. Now, they're gone.
Those baby birds will never take risks, take flight, or leave the nest.
These two little eggs are good reminders for me during graduation season. Max informed anyone who would listen that he was not going to stay for a local church's Mother's Day Out, half-day, three-day-a-week preschool program next year. Although he loves his teachers, he declared he was going down the street to the five-day-a-week, full-day preschool. His little sister wants to attend the Mother's Day Out program.

They're ready. It doesn't matter if I am. My job is to welcome them to the nest when they return and hope a helping hand will rescue them if they need it.
My friend Dee Dee Chumley is giving away a necklace this month. Deadline is June 17, 2013. Check it out and remember our robins. You'll understand why I love her giveaway so much.

I kept looking for an appropriate quote to put in the blog. Thanks for finding it.Delete
Congratulations to Max! Can't believe he's already old enough to leave the nest five full days a week. Yes, it's hard to see little ones fly from the nest, but it's heartbreaking when for some reason they can't.ReplyDelete
(And thanks for the link!)
This was my bonus year with Max. If he had been born six hours earlier, he'd start kindergarten in August.So hard to believe.Delete
I really want that necklace. Seriously, I hope to buy one if I don't win it.
Your little chickies are growing up! It's just so amazing, isn't it?ReplyDelete
beautiful comparison. it does tug at your heart every time they take a step away from you, one step closer to independence, doesn't it?ReplyDelete
Definitely. I just hope they always return--even when they have their own nests. *sniffle*Delete
