Brad had another good day. The four of us took advantage of the cool weather and made a trip to the park by our house. Our neighborhood duck was there...still wandering. We've had a random duck in our yard the last 2 nights. I have no idea where it came from. There are no ponds or any bodies of water for miles, so who knows how he got here. Today he just seemed confused. Poor guy. My kids of course think it is great. Every time Kaelyn sees him she says, "I get him, I get him." Then we have to convince her that the duck does not want to "be gotten" or held in any manner. My children have absolutely NO animal fears. They are so unafraid it actually makes me nervous. Zeke will run right up to the back of a horse...Kaelyn likes to approach stray dogs...they make a great combination. I can only invision the types of creatures they may find when they get a little older and try to bring into my house.

They will just grow up to be precious dog "rescuers" like my Leigh and Sid. Children with tender hearts towards animals grow up to have tender hearts towards people! And, so sorry about the ticket. I think about 500 of us should write that nice policeman and tell him what we think! In a nice way, of course.

Yeah, kids are fun, huh. I will never forget the day Caleb said, "Mommy, I put something under the door for you." I was in the shower, and he had stuck a tiny baby frog under the bathroom door. Ugh! He had to get it out after my shower. :0

I am so glad that you got to have an "outing" and enjoy the wonderful weather yesterday. A woman I considered very wise once told me when my first daughter was about three.....That fearless spirit is a sign of self-confidence. That really made me think about it differently.

Praying without waiver for health renewed.
