A Big Bird at Church

When I say Big Bird I am not talking about Sesame Street tall bird. I'm talking about the second largest bird in the world, the emu.            It came in the back yard (but that is in another post).

Laura Ingalls Wilder Book Review

These are some books that I really like. You should read them.  I like all of them but Little Town on the Prairie and These Happy Golden Years are my favorite.

A Winter's Walk

It might be strange that I am doing a winter post on the second day of spring.
I love spring, but there were really pretty sights this winter.

It was not packing snow, so I had
to pack it myself. So I only got this far before I had to go inside.
But she looks so cute!

My snow angel was the first thing I did when I went outside

Now it is time for the birds.
We had a lot of birds at our feeders. The bluejay was just one of the birds we saw. They came and ate.

Mrs. Cardinal was another one that stopped by.

Mr. Cardinal was what I think the ones who came the most that you can see on this post. The ones that came the most are the nuthatches and black capped chickadees.  Tufted titmice came to our house too.

Two Little Animals

These animals are a rabbit{right}
and a crow.{down}
The rabbit was in the backyard, and the crow was in the front yard.
I love rabbits.
The crow was just cool.

High in the Sky

The pictures are when my older brothers and I flew our kites in May.    
This picture is when
my two older brothers and I flew our kites.

This kite
is my oldest brother's kite.

And this one is my moon kite.

April Flowers

Last April my family and I planted three kinds of flowers-- pansies, petunias, and moss roses.
And we put new mulch in.
