Danica’s first deer gutting observation.
Zach and Grandpa’s deer. (The letter is part of a class project his cousin asked him to do.)
We had to talk him into holding the heart. I’m sparing you the large photo in case the site of a split open deer carcass and sprawling guts makes you squeamish. Click at your own discretion.
The snow buntings have been flying into the neighbors newly installed windows. They brought a couple over for the boys to have a closer look and here they are sketching them.
A few photos taken on the way to visit my family last weekend…..
Then back home again……
Sorry, I’m not sparing you the fish gut view. The evening we returned home we found out the whitefish were spawning. With some chest waders that Dad had loaned us, we walked out into the waves with a net and flashlights. We only managed to scoop two fish. It was pretty wavy. The waves were even bigger the next night, so we didn’t try again. The third night we had plans in the city. Then they were done. No more whitefish. Now we’ll just have to wait for ice so we can go ice fishing for them!
I cleaned the fish the next day. Gabe and Ben got right into dissecting them. Zach had had enough with holding the deer heart the previous day.
The gulls and ravens had nearly cleaned up all the fish guts when, finally, the eagle made his appearance. He had circled in a few times earlier. This time he swooped in a grabbed some dinner.
Building a bird feeder with scrap from the neighbors yard.
Vacuuming with ear protection.
The rearranged furniture in the living room. It’s WAAAAYYY better…. seems more open, bigger….. just better.
More pics to upload. More stuff to report. But that is all for tonight. I’ll get the pictures uploading and that takes just about all night on this slow poke computer. Maybe another post tomorrow….. maybe.
