EASTER BUNNIES!

To everyone celebrating the Easter Holiday here's one of my favorite images. It's titled "Three of a Kind" for obvious reasons. These three bunnies were discovered by some of my students hunkered down in the quadrangle of our school during the midst of a construction project which had disturbed their nest. Thankfully, Mama Rabbit was found a few hours later and the whole brood was able to relocate via the "Bunny Protection Program" to a ranch in East Texas to live out their lapin dreams.


I hope your Easter weekend is filled with many joys - Our newest joy is the addition of a new Scottie Dog yesterday to help fill the void left by the passing of our 16 year old German Shepard mix, Cassie. Our current Scottie, Rumpus, is adjusting to life with his new (and very active!) housemate we've named Mr. Bumbles.

They are so cute! While picking up sticks in preparation for our first lawn mowing of the season, I found a nest out in the middle of the backyard. I'm glad we found it and got them moved before we mowed. Happy Easter.
