|See Mom? She won't hurt you!|
I'm not too skittish about unusual pets, but having experienced the pinchers of Real Dungeness crabs when crabbing as a child, I'm hesitant to pick up any animal called a crab, even, well, if it isn't a real crab. But how could I resist? The students are so proud and Ashby was very proud of her extended responsibility this week.
And then today, what better excuse to NOT go for a bike ride than a birding adventure with our local birding expert extraordinaire, David. We went to Jackson Park, in Chicago, and were delighted to see all matter of winged and feathered friends.
|The book displays were the only times that I didn't have my own binocs pasted to my eye!|
|It's all about paying attention.|
|After three hours or so, Ashby is winding up, but the rest are just catching the bug!|
|Japanese Garden...who knew??? Chicago Park District, that's who!|
