This spring we had a dove nesting in a tree in our front yard.  Our 7 yo neighbor friend decided to try to hold one of the eggs and it smashed on the rocks below.  Here is the one lowly egg that was left.

The baby dove hatched!

Unfotunately the same little neighbor girl thought that when she saw it flopping around on the ground (trying to learn to fly) it meant it’s wing was broken.  She took it home and it wiggled out of her hands from the top stair in her home.  It fell too far to survive. 

The moral of this story is that when you see animals in nature ~it’s fine to observe from a safe distance but DO NOT TOUCH!


About Missy

I'm a wife to an awesome Army vet, and mother to four daughters and three step-sons! I love to sew. I learned to sew in 4H, and from my Oma while staying with her for a week or two in the summers as a young girl. I love to bake desserts. I would love to live on lots of land and own lots of animals. I've always been drawn to nature which has lead me towards a more natural and healthy lifestyle which I'm finally trying to bring back into my life, and those precious lives around me.
