growing up.

we have a robin’s nest perched above the light next to our front door.

mama watches us very carefully from the closest branch she can find as we come in and out throughout the day.

and the babies squawk for food while mama makes sure we aren’t harming them.

they are growing up so fast! before we know it they will be leaving the nest to fly free in the world!


well, turns out it was “before we we know it”! they grew up and flew away without us even saying goodbye. we did get to see one learning to fly on the front lawn though!

they have  been gone for almost a week now and i still look up at the nest every time i walk in or out the front door. now we move on to other miracles of summer, like tomatoes and peppers and basil, oh my!
