Nature Study: The Return of the Birds

Even if I was able to sleep in– a virtually impossible task when you have six children!– I am finding myself waking up every morning to the sound of birds. Coincidentally, the twins created a bird feeder in their Sunday School class, leading to an interest in the birdies in our neighborhood. They’ve been gathering up rocks, twigs, and grasses to create “nests.” It’s sweet, but I could do without it immediately outside the front door!

At the same time, I’ve been leading some music classes at a local preschool. I miss teaching little ones, and it’s just enough to make me miss it. But our topic these last few weeks? Birds!
