Fledging



I swear, watching birds fledge their young helps seal the universal understanding of parents. Today, I had the fun of watching the 5 little chickadees leave the nest. It was a most exhausting chore for the parents. They had to coax, feed, and keep abreast of the safety of their nest.

As a parent, can you relate?

I just loved watching. I kept thinking they were saying, "Okay, you're next. Have fun. Life's an adventure. Love you...visit often!"



And that was one little guy that was highly anxious to leave, but annoyed at my Oliver, who was yet again, his vocal, energetic self.

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!

And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
