We have baby ducklings!!!
For several years, we have had a momma duck that has used our enclosed courtyard at school to lay her eggs. This year she was back to repeat the tradition!
The ducklings have hatched and they are soooooooooo cute it's crazy! 13 babies in all...that's the most we have ever had.
and worst part about our new friends is that the courtyard is right outside our classroom windows. You can imagine keeping 6 and 7 year olds focused while furry, wittle, bitty, cutenesses are right outside. I mean, I have a hard time not going over to check on them too!
Our sweet and sometimes curmudgeonly janitor even went and bought duck food for them. The ducklings are slated to eventually end up at 2 different farms near by.
I don't want to think about them leaving. I mean, what will I use to distract myself for the last 16 days of school :)
Here they are:
And, I just want to show off two kindergarten displays that currently adorning our hallways. They are so stinking cute!
Have a BLESSED day!
