When we came home from vacation, we found a duck's nest in our rose bushes. Four eggs had hatched, and two were remaining. The kids loved seeing the eggs and feathers. Unfortunately, it looks like the two remaining eggs aren't going to hatch--we might have scared the mother away!
My kids remind me of critters sometimes. Aaron does what we call the "stink bug" crawl, where his knees don't touch the ground (I think they are a little sore from crawling places he doesn't belong, like the sidewalk). And last night, I found this in our kitchen... its either a large rodent, or a little Rachel who thought this butter was cheese.
