Duck Fun

A lot has happened since I posted last but unfortunately our camera broke. So you will not get to see any pics from that time. But we have a new one now and are back in business. Some of what you missed out on is that Allen had an awesome report card. His teacher was very pleased with the work he has done and said " Allen is already doing work at a 1st grade level." We are so proud of him and all his hard work. Speaking of school, Carter just started his first year in preschool. We are loving the preschool he is at and it has already helped him improve so much. All our boys are doing very well. We took a quick trip to see Grandma and Grandpa Meagher two weeks ago. It was so much fun to get to visit with them. We only got to go for the day but it just made us remember how much we miss being able to see them whenever we want. It's hard to live so far away. Well that's the highlights of what you missed and now on to the next thing. My niece Natosha bought a duck the other day and Katrina brought it over when she visited us last week. He is super cute and it was a good experience for the kids. The boys have been getting more and more nervous around animals. So when she brought the baby duck out one boy screamed and ran and the other jumped behind someone. Yes all that for a little baby duck. As the day went on and everyone was playing with him. All the boys started to loosen up and have fun with him too. You probably could have guessed that Carter was the one who screamed and ran. In this picture much time had passed and he was at the point where it was okay as long as he was in the tub.
I think this is right around the time both boys first touched the duck. Good job boys!
Allen was a little worried that the duck was going to bite him. By the end of the day Allen was letting the duck nibble on his fingers and laughing.
Of course mom had to show the boys that this thing was okay to touch. Well, and I just love baby ducks.

Evan even got a chance to pet the duck. All the excitement makes me think we need to get some kind of pet soon. Although I have no desire what so ever to have one right now. I think the boys might need the experience. By the end of the day though the boys were sad to see him go home. Which give us some hope.
