So much going on! So little time!
First of all, Gordeeta is still on her nest. The water has risen quite high but not quite to her nest. The goslings should be born in the next week. Gordeeta has lasted through rain, sleet, snow and yes, even hail. What a gal! Gordon gets after her when she gets off the nest even for a short while, but you know what I say...why don't YOU sit on the nest, Gordon, and let your honey have a few moments of peace? But nature does not work that way...so Gordeeta protects her eggs as best she can (there are seven of them) and Gordon protects her by patrolling up and down the pond and banks.
We have had lots of rain and even more today after those two lovely 80 degree days! The drought is over! The pond has risen back to its usual level. Life is good. Enjoy the pictures!
Dave and I picked up 100 catfish and 50 bluegill on April 18th. They seemed happy to get into the pond. It was a crazy rainy day but we perservered!
Angela sent some pictures of the kids. I love the one where Jeff is playing soccer with the kids. Chloe seems to be chasing after the ball, but Katie and Jack enjoy just watching the ball. It's so amazing to see Jack walking/standing around. It's been a long haul for that little sweet heart from 1 1/2 pounds to this! They are getting big!
Dear Reader, Life really IS good. Spring is here and hope is reflected in the budding leaves on the trees, the tulips and crocuses. How we appreciate the sun and the warmth! Enjoy, Dear Reader, Enjoy!
