Have You Ever Seen The Oddly Beautiful Roseate Spoonbill?!

Frank and I took off early one day this week, jumped in the kayak with our fishing poles, and paddled around the corner to the bay. Despite the tide moving quickly, we didn’t get any bites – not even a nibble. However, Frank said we caught plenty of breeze and sunshine! The boats around us weren’t having any luck either but the sea breeze was brisk, the air was warm, and the sun on the water was beautiful. We decided to do some exploring, paddling through a natural tunnel of sorts between the mangroves. When we emerged, we found a peaceful inlet with numerous very happy water birds of many colorful varieties. I was THRILLED to find a flock of my favorite birds, Roseate Spoonbills!

Here is one of the pictures I took:

Ali had better luck fishing last weekend. She caught an old fishing pole near our dock! We were glad to get that pollution out of the water, and away from fish and manatees.

This Week’s Masonism:

Mason is a very strong reader and we challenge him by giving him books for children above his grade level. Last week, I gave him Hatchet by Gary Paulsen. I said, “It’s about a boy who’s in a plane crash.”

Mason rolled his eyes, and said, “That doesn’t sound interesting.”

I sighed, and replied, “It’s about a boy who’s in a plane crash and he’s all alone, and has to learn how to survive!”

Mason smiled, opened the book, and said, “Okay, NOW it sounds interesting!”

Hugs to all,
Angela
