Animals, by the numbers
I suspect that growing up with a biologist for a mother means you have some experiences that other kids simply do not have.
Oh sure, we have a CHINA cabinet in our house not filled with china but filled with bones, eggs, skeleton pieces, dead bugs, rocks, sticks, lichens, turtle shells, etc. But yesterday might have been the icing on the science cake.
We took my nephew back up to Grandpa's house, which is 53 miles of back country highway. (NOT interstate.) So, to keep Jack from aggravating Sammi we counted road kill.
That's right, we counted road kill. In case you are curious there was:
and 18 !! raccoons
Plus 1 live woodchuck and 3 live turkeys.
A hallmark moment for sure, don't you think?
Today was an animal day too. At yard sales we picked up:
this super cute box which was...
holding this AWESOME jumpy squirrel.
And Dave spotted a wonderful flock of:
old paper mache crows!
We have been junking for more than 13 years together now and we have never seen anything like them.
I can't wait until Halloween to break them back out again!
