a sign of spring...at last

robineggs2

It seems as though a robin has built her nest in the fort of my daughters' swingset (aren't they just perfect? hmmmm, a warm fuzzy?) - well, she couldn't have picked a more protected or sheltered space, or more precarious. I mean how much restraint can I expect an 8 and almost 3 year old to possess? I'm asking my girls to dig deep, let's not disturb the eggs - truth be told my oldest thinks she would like to raise them herself...she is a true Grizzly Adams, and let me just qualify this by saying "the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree".

Those eggs are so gorgeous! I'm sure the girls will be careful. It'll be hard to avoid curiosity though.

Oh, Wow! How beautiful. I go around my house setting up fake nests with fake eggs just trying to achieve that look. How precious!

i wish i could bestow restraint with a wand... what a great thing to observe. maybe you could ask the girls (or at least your older one) to keep a journal of observations they make while the nest is there. it'd be kind of like a carrot over the head.

Oh my goodness. Those eggs are so perfect. Every year a robin builds it's nest in the pine tree in our backyard. And every year our dog figures out how to knock the nest down. :( Maybe this year I'll succeed in curtailing her efforts.

I'm sure your girls will be at least a bit more careful than my rambunctious canine! :)

I my gosh, thank you for sharing this. It is soooo precious! Lucky girls! Good luck hatching those. My son came to me last summer with an egg he found from a nest on the ground we were trying to avoid...There were four eggs inside. Happily one day, four chicks were born to proud parents. We were all amazed and relieved.

Ahh, spring, how we love thee! The nest is so awesome, and the eggs?! Precious. Good luck with the lesson for the girls. Restraint was one of those characteristics I was sorely lacking as kid.

Yarn dyers: Please observe this perfect color of blue in the eggs that Peanknit has perfectly captured. This would sell a LOT of yarn! :)
I love it that you refer to your daughter (and yourself) as Grizzly Adams! :)
