Well, Hannah and Spencer learned one of those hard--life lessons tonight about nature in particular. We had 4 baby bunnies born in a little burrow in our front yard this spring. It's not the first time, but it's the first time my kids were genuinely interested in them. Well, after watching them grow for about a week or so. We sadly realized that a big black ol'crow was also watching them. And he got all four of them in the span of the evening tonight. So, sis was devastated. Spencer was sort of intrigued. And we got to talk about how nature isn't always all soft and fuzzy like baby bunnies. That bunnies feed other animals like snakes, eagles, hawks, and even cats. I know it wasn't fun for them to discover the yucky part of nature, but they'll be fine.
And we were also fortunate enough to thank our kids for their stellar behavior in public tonight. At our local DQ, we stood in line behind a child that was maybe in the 6-8 year old range. She had on new flip flops apparently and thought it would be fun to make them cause a LOUD clicking noise on the DQ floor. We ignored it and got through the line. Well, we sat near them, and as soon as we sat down, she stood up and started doing it all over again, and again, and again, and again... you get the point. So we got up and brought our ice cream home. Thanks be to God for our wonderful children.
