I came home from knitting and found some very unhappy people. The baby robin died this evening. I'm not sure what else we could have done. The bird seemed fine today, ate worms and some strawberries.




It is so hard to explain something like this to kids. Both Alex and Eli had become very attached to the bird.

  1. Oh dang it!!! At least you can tell the kids that they TRIED... the bird would have had NO change if they didnt do all that they did... but to remember that God is in charge of everything - no matter how hard we try sometimes...

    poor kiddos...

  2. I'm so sorry! And so glad they got a chance to care for a wild thing. I can tell you from experience that something like this in a child's life will help cement a lifelong passion for looking out for the small and defenseless.
