Heh! I kid. This robin egg was found at the bottom or our pool. How it managed to be there I really couldn't tell you. Perhaps Ms. Robin bottomed out as she flew over or a more likely explanation is that a crow or blue jay stole the egg and lost it's grip while in flight. Who knows!
Lucy was spending the night as usual on Tuesday and she was so tickled to find this egg. She kept saying it was a candy Easter egg. We had a little lesson on how when something or someone touches a birds egg the mama bird will not come back to it. She seemed to accept that, or so I thought. She then asked if she could just take a little lick to see if it was candy. O.K. then!! I had to take that little blue egg away before a few licks happened. But all was good because she was on a mission.
The fun thing about living out in the country is the things little kids can find to do. Lucy told me she was going to find some treasures. Here is some of her loot. Then off for a bath and bed time story.
Sorry no blue egg for breakfast.
