I will post my usual Friday quote at the bottom of this, cause it is dang funny and spoken by my twelve year old niece.
But this morning I got an email from my mother in law about the amazing owls that my kids were fascinated with during her last visit to Colorado. Turns out they are about to hatch a second set of eggs, which is supposed to start this weekend! Probably Sunday, but this is nature people, there aren’t any schedules!
I wanted to share it with anyone who might be interested so that you can catch any action that might happen this weekend, the Mamma’s name is Molly, she is patiently warming her eggs now. Daddy’s name is McGee, he brings all the flesh in over night for everyone to eat.
Evidently NBC Nightly News is doing a segment on the owls on Saturday evening at 6:30 PM Eastern Time to get you started. From my mother in law:
“Most of the adult owl activity takes place at night (San Marcos, CA time) and is shown with the infrared camera (black and white) but during the day the inside the owl box camera shows in color and it will get rather active once the owlets start moving around.”
Spill it: How do you teach your kids about nature? Any ideas you want to share?
It’s the end of the week, and every Friday I leave you with words of wisdom, anecdotes, interesting and inspiring, even some thought provoking things I might have read or come across, to ponder. If only to shine a light on simple, natural living, mothering, mamavism, crafting, gardening, sisterhood, children and any other area which might fall into the world of an evolving homemaker. Which we all are doing. All of the time. Evolving, that is…
