New Arrivals

Look who has been building a nest on our window!  Funny enough, she chose to build the nest on TOP of the birdhouse we put out.  We are very excited, because it is against our window which means we can spy on her a bit.  Flower and I spent a long time running from window to window, watching mama bird pick up moss and grass in her beak, and then bring it back to the nest, sit on it and wiggle around to get it just right.  Here's hoping she lays eggs in there and we get to experience some baby robins up close- that would be so fun!

In other news, we have another child from Safe Families staying with us for a week or so...and possibly for the odd weekend now and then.  Another 2 year old, this time a little boy.  Once again he appears to be quite adorable, and we are looking forward to getting to know him, and his mother.

I had a phone call from Little Man's mom yesterday, out of the blue.  He was our first SFFC child, and she says that he is doing well, and that she'd love to get together sometime.  Not sure if that will happen for sure or not, but it was wonderful to hear that he is well, and so nice of her to think to call us.  We actually got this latest kiddo because I responded to a post for a "very sweet 2 year old boy in our city who had been placed with a safe family before" just to make sure that it was not our Little Man being placed again.  It was a different child, but I just had to be sure! I also heard that Little Miss and her mom are doing alright, too.  Good to hear- we think about them often! 

Anyways...yesterday's gorgeous sunshine has given way to rain today, but we have the usual preschool morning run followed by an indoor playdate here today, so it should be a good one.  Have a wonderful day everyone!
