Birdhouses and More!

Finally, we found a use for the birdhouses that the boys have made in cub scouts. They have been moved a dozen times in our basement over the past few years. Recently I saw a picture of various birdhouses along a fence and got an a-ah moment. Put the boys to work, Dad dug the holes and presto new decorations for the garden that I'm working on.

The boys had a good time at camp. My youngest thought it was the best thing since sliced bread...but of course he would, he's my no-rules man. Constantly pushing the limits to see what he can get away with. My oldest is the opposite. He is the play by the rules guy and when others don't, it disturbs him. Camp for him was difficult when the rules were not being followed. Not sure if he will go again. Overall, it was a great experience for both boys and I'm glad that we gave them the push they needed to try it.

Knitting is happening around here and hopefully, I will have socks to show you in a day or two. Which leads me to the blue sky picture. I need to catch it while I can, because I'm not going to see it again until Sunday afternoon. More rain is on it's way, which means more indoor activities, which means my socks get completed.

Buddy sends you all a big smoochy kiss and hopes you have a great day!

Great birdhouses! Do you have a problem with squirrels? I see they are pretty close to the fence - we have such a time with ours. They drive me nuts!

I love the birdhouses, Jane. Sounds like the boys had a great experience and just as important, you had fun, too!
