So we went back to my mom’s today to take pictures of the duckies. Mom was glad that she didn’t have to get all the way in the water. She only had to wade out with her rubber boots on to get them to come in. They went CRAZY with swimming. Every once in a while one of them would dive out really far and then all of them would start squawking and splashing like they were applauding the brave one. Daniel asked Josiah this afternoon what noise the ducks make and Josiah started squawking just like them and flapping his arms. Daniel said, “Wow! Those ducks are crazy.” as if Josiah was exaggerating. But it was pretty close to the truth. They are so funny. It is amazing to me to see how God ordered the world. Even down to the tiny ducks who always stay in a group and will “magically” follow around their care giver, even if she is human!! If He loves ducks so much to put that in them, how much more does He love us!? Thank you, God, for telling us of your MAJESTY through nature!
Here are some of the best pictures I took of the duck tales. hehe:)
A little introduction, first. This is Sumo. He is a Peking duck and he is, my mom says, the leader of the pack.
Mom had just gotten them out of their pen, and they were being a tad disobedient at first.
Momma duck encouraging good behavior.
A change of heart!
“Momma, wait for us.”
Mom kept syaing, “Come on, Babies. Come on.” And they listened!
They finally made it to the water. Josiah had to go in too, of course.
Sumo being a stud!
Mom wanted them to move to a new swimming spot and they followed her yet again.
This is Mary. Well, at least mom thinks she is a girl. This Mom’s and my favorite duck and Dad’s least favorite. Mom thinks Mary has a crush on Sumo. She usually sees them together.

Coming back from the pond. They love her!
A happy family.
Bath time before bed time!!
A funny picture to reward you for looking at all the duck pictures. Daniel and Josiah decided to make faces and take a self-portrait. I was surprised Josiah understood!! I LOVE these boys!!
Joyce, Mom said to tell you that her internet is down (that’s why she hasn’t emailed in a while) and she lost your phone number. If you will email or facebook it to me I will get to her for you! I hope Savannah and Caleb enjoyed the pictures. They would’ve loved to see the duckies, I know!! We miss you guys!
