Tonight we discovered the third baby bunny that Smiley has maimed/killed in the last week. While working in our front yard last week he discovered a bunny burrow. Needless to say, I don't enjoy having to deal with such travesties...
Typically, I'm hating the bunnies for leveling my perennial beds...but when a little, tiny, helpless bunny gets munched by my over zealous dog, I find myself sad and angry at my beast!
The good news was that at least the bunny tonight, was dead when I found it (thus, making it so we don't have to put it out of it's misery, like the other two bunnies last week).
On the bright side...today while driving to my spinning class (this seems to be one of our best formats for great conversation) Oscar and I had this conversation...
Me- "Oscar, do you know why all of the flags are hanging up?"
O- "no why are they hanging up?"
Me-"It is for the fourth of July, when we celebrate the Birthday of the United states of America."
O-"I know America, he is a super hero...remember mom!"
Me- "Oh, Yeah....Captain America...well Oscar, Yes...that is where he gets his name. We also celebrate our countries freedom...maybe we will discuss it more tonight at family home evening."
Tonight, we hung a flag of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, not Captain America...Although , I can see how they easily can be confused (big superpowers and great tights???). We also decorated Oscar's bike for the fun kiddie bike parade in our friends neighborhood...pictures are yet to come...
