Day 154

I went bird watching with Sofie today, it was her first time ever. We bought a kid size pair of binoculars and a kid bird book and went on our way, it was so exciting, the first bird she saw all on her own was a good old red winged blackbird, check that one off the list. Next was a whole bunch of purple martins, check, canada geese and babies, check, a yellow warbler, song sparrow, a very cool baltimore oriole and this little savannah sparrow that was taking a bath in a puddle, we watched him hop around singing away, Sofie spotted him through her binoculars and was so excited to check it off her list. I was impressed that she lasted as long as she did with out losing patience, I was so happy that she enjoyed it and loved watching how she was excited over the 'ordinary' birds we saw today. I can't wait till she comes over to see all the birds at the feeders in our yard. Sofie chose the picture of the day today, I think she chose exactly the right one.
