Socialist Geese!

{Grace feeding the geese from a couple years ago}

Last year, the kids were riding around in the car with Frank and Grace spotted some geese and said something to the effect of, "There's some Canadian Geese". Frank then proceed to inform her that those were actually Socialist Geese. (And yes, if you're wondering, I fully anticipate making several trips to the school over the coming years to deal with the outcome of having little Frank Nobles.) Ha ha, right?! Well that has totally stuck with her and now that it's spring time and the geese are coming back, she is constantly yelling, "Socialist Geese! Socialist Geese!".

Today was a busy morning (we left the house at 8am!) of running around; gym first, then on to a quick stop at the dentist for Grace, Costco and another quick stop at the library to pick up some books that were on hold. The lawn at the library is always a hot spot for geese, so when we saw them, Grace wanted to stop and feed them Cheerios. I'm sure it will come to no suprise that I carry all manner of snacks in the car for the kids. However since I no longer bring Cheerios, I had to promise a day of geese feeding for Thursday.

Should be fun. I only wish it will be warm enough to include a picnic lunch.

Just a few more weeks...
