Oh Deer!

Shortly after waking up this morning, I sat with the computer in the living room and saw movement outside the windows. Sure enough, there was a deer walking right outside the wall. I carefully called Mikayla and Michele in, then looked out the other windows and saw a total of four - apparently that's the family of deer that live around here.

Interesting that in the two homes Michele have lived in that have been very "suburbia" - with sidewalks and all - there have been deer that have visited often - and yet, the house they lived at with the wide expanse of field space, trees, and pond - NEVER had deer.

Anyway, it was a fun experience to have all of the kids see them, watch them, and basically eat breakfast with them. Love starting the morning like that.....

How beautiful. I wish I were there with you guys instead of at work doing these darned state reports. I hope I can get them done in time to take at least one day off and enjoy a little bit of spring break.

I can't believe that one picture of the deer just looking in the window at everyone. It seems like they are so friendly and tame. Crazy!

Love you guys!

We wish you were here too! However, Michele is going back through the fever process- sick again, so I wouldn't want you to get back into that! Good luck with those reports!
