"We have new birds, they are bluebirds. I think they are going to live in my bird house. I was very happy!! I am not sure if they are going to lay eggs. We have seen the male a lot. We just started getting the female bluebird."-Avery
Just a few days ago Avery and I were downstairs, maybe doing school, and we heard a strange bird call. One we had not heard before. That always distracts us from whatever we are doing. So i grabbed the binoculars, that are always close at hand, and we checked out the backyard. To our surprise we saw a bluebird. He was checking out Avery's birdhouse. She built this last year with Chris as a project for her science class. There was lots of jumping up and down and quiet screaming (so we did not scare the birds of course) when she spotted it. We watched carefully and they came back the next day as well. We have hope that they will make a home and have a little family in our yard. I have lived in NY almost my whole life and i had never seen a bluebird, our state bird, until this year. The bird nerds here are so excited!!
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD candidate. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 13 and 10 and "baby" Delilah who is 5. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
