... we spotted this magnificent (Cooper's?) hawk! We had just arrived home from a morning field trip when I noticed a large bird swoop through the neighbor's yard and into our own.
He's gorgeous of course, but not at all welcome. Just yesterday the boys and I watched 5 (FIVE!) red squirrels playing in the yard, running between our rooftop and the trees out back. I hate to think of them out and about with predators like this hanging around ...
Anyhoo ... we spent the morning at the American Textile Museum in Lowell, Massachusetts. I have LOTS of pictures to share from the museum tour and the homeschool classes the boys participated in - but I will have to get those up later this weekend. In a nutshell, it was a fantastic experience - the perfect complement to our current Industrial Revolution study!
Well, that's all for now - just a quick check-in as the week comes to a close. I hope you all have a great weekend - I'll be back here again just as soon as I can. :)
