April Photo's of the Month

My favorite posts are the photo of the month posts. Time for April already! I can't believe how this year is flying by. 

First up is a letter that our little girl wrote to us. She usually puts a note into her dads cereal bowl most mornings, and this is one that we are saving. I admit I cried like a baby when I read this one. 

We were able to tend some babies for some friends, A little goose, 2 ducklings and a chick. Sadly we ended up killing one of the ducklings. We let them swim in the tub while we cleaned out their bedding and while they were swimming one of them drowned, and the other was barely saved. It was a hard day for Elyssa, life and death stuff sucks when you are only 12.  She gave this little guy a temporary name,Tim.

One of the ducklings was named Ping, temporarily of course.

And this guy got the name of Featherstone, he looks so proud. Well we were not sure if it was a he or a she, but his stance here all but screams Rooster!

Dixie just had to get in on the action, What in the world is going on in that box? Can I play with it? 
She was a bit skittish around these little babies. Pretty funny to watch. 

Zentangle Inspired Art or ZIA #3. I am not good at all when it comes to a blank page. I think I might be a little bit left brained and need a structure to start out with. Thank the Lord I have a Child who can draw. She drew the Chicken and I tangled it. It is going to be the art I use for egg carton labels. I am going to add a nest and a few eggs as well.  If you don't know what Zentangle is look it up on youtube, also look up zendoodle or zendala. So much fun and relaxing as well. The best part is that ANYONE can do it. 

And I just love how our family photos turned out. 

Thanks for stopping by.
