Alex just excitedly told me he just saw two mourning doves outside his window. And he keeps telling us that there are bald eagles nesting near the Connecticut river so he is on the lookout for them. He knows a lot about birds and is very interested in them (particularly 'birds of prey') while neither Allan nor I know much about them. He must get it from my dad and I think that is so cool. He inherited my dad's binoculars and when he's a little more responsible I can't wait for him to have them. They can be seen in the Red Sox game photo a few months back. I'd find it but I need to get myself and three boys ready for church and then spend at least five minutes stamping my foot so Allan gets ready.
