Sitting there today brought back many wonderful moments of that time in my life. Thinking now that these little ones are in their 20's. Wow!
The pond now is home to many different types of birds. Many more than years ago. I remember there was this tiny little boy in our class. This one goose would go after him whenever we went. He liked to peck at him. Never failed, same duck, same child. We would have to chase that pesty duck from this little guy all the time. Thinking now, it might have been love pecks...because the little guy was not much taller than the goose.
This beauty was a cross mix of a Mallard and maybe a domestic duck. He came up close to our van and was very verbal. There were a few swans among the flock of ducks. Made for a very pretty picture. Except when I went to take their pictures, they always went bottom up. lol
Even though it was a dreary, foggy day, it still was a nice ride through the farmlands. The fields are being prepared and some planted . Hopefully the weather will be just right for the planting and growing this year.
An old empty school house sitting in an open field. Now surrounded by new housing developments. How sad for the days gone by. Wonder how many children went to this school and are they still around now to talk about it. Wonder if any of my little ones, will remember the things they did when they were in pre-school. Wonder if the little guy will remember that pesty goose.
My goodness, as we turned around one corner, we were met by the assembling of a carnival already! This was a big one on a Walmart parking lot. Wonder if anyone has told Mother Nature
that it is the season and we are waiting for the right type of weather to celebrate. There will be many cold and wet riders if the weather stays as nasty as they say it will be this weekend. :-(
After our trip to town, and our back road drive, we headed home. And you can tell we were on the right track.. We always seem to be behind a farmer and his tractor this time of the year. Just have to love them.!!! :-)
Have a wonderful day. Maybe take a few minutes and ~Take the Time~ to remember something of your childhood during your school days.
