Follow up on baby birds

Remember our precious baby birds that we've kept an eye on from the time they were just eggs?

**In case you've missed it, here's the story**

Look what's outside our window now!

These pictures were taken through our dining room window last week

This one was taken 3 days ago through the same window

As of today, the nest is empty. Our little ones have flown the coop.

We will miss them!

Hopefully one day they will build their nests in these bushes, too.

Rewards for Good - Make that Great! - Grades

Big Brother cashed in today with some fun rewards for earning all A's .

Family Video will give each child a coupon for one free rental of a movie or video game for each "A" earned. 5 grades = 5 "A"s = 5 coupons!

He was so sweet to share his coupons with his sister. Little Sister has a awesome report card but since they don't get graded with letter grades, they wouldn't accept her report card. Big Brother to the rescue...he gave her 2 coupons and kept 3 for himself.

He rented a Wii game, MLB 2k9 and the movie Paranormal Hour. He is so into the paranormal stuff right now. He decided to keep his other coupon to use later on.

Little Sister rented a Nintendo DS game, Pampered Pets and the movie Tinkerbell.


Off we went to Krispy Kreme. They reward good grades with 1 glazed donut per "A". 5 glazed donuts for Big Brother! Again, he shared them with the family.

If you're aware of any other reward programs out there, we'd love for you to share them with us.

Look what we found!

Look at these precious baby birds!

Mom and Dad built their nest in a bush next to our side door. Both of them sit high above, either or the house or the wires, watching over the nest day and night.

They feed the babies May flies.

What a great science lesson. When we found the nest, it only had eggs in it. Now it holds 4 baby birds. Hopefully we'll see them fly off someday.
