Today is our nature study day and dad was home, so what was I to do. Dad always throughs off our school day when he's home. Not in a bad way just in a "wasn't expecting you to be here now what are we doing today" way. He always has a project to do (like now they are building a lean to for goats/chickens).
Anyway so as he runs off to Menards for more supplies we are reading our science and what lands on our 16 ft round 4 ft deep Intex pool .. a Red Tail Hawk. We were in awe, trying to find our camera and what not. He stayed and visited for about 8 minutes but it was the best 8 minutes in the day (at least so far). After about 5 of those minutes he jumped down to the ground and found his way to our little 3 ft round kiddy pool that the ladder sits in to wash feet prior to going into the pool. He was washing himself and walking around in it. It was a true sight that we will never forget.
This is God's great beauty that we don't always get to see up close but today his grace filled our home with awe and excitement. Do you have any stories that you'd like to share here? I'd love to hear about what you've seen at home or out. I would love to share them with my children. Have a great day and watch for those "AWE" moments.
