Birthday card + the backyard + UGHHH!

Here's a card I made for my MIL:

The Backyard
And this morning I let the dogs out. Ginger wouldn't come back in and Bear aka "freak" wouldn't go out (he has social anxiety!!!! :()

I had to drag Ginger in from the backyard and couldn't figure out what her problem was. Well, this afternoon we figured it out. We have a robin nest in one of our trees. We found a baby robin that must have fallen out or something b/c it was dead on the ground. Then there is another baby who has left the nest that is trying to nest in a bush (Ginger ain't having it)! DH found the nest. Here's some pics that I took to share with my 1st graders. I know, I'm a dork!! I'm going to read Are you my mother tomorrow.

UGHHHHH!
We got a letter in the mail yesterday that our social worker is leaving in 10 days!!!!! Her DH's work is transferring them out of state. I'm majorly bummed b/c we are used to her and she's used to us. Even though nothing seems to go right. DH says he thinks a change of face will be nice but I'm really uneasy about it. I guess we'll see. I'm going to call the new SW in a couple of weeks and try to meet with her since we have never spoken with her. I hope this is not one more thing to set us back! :mad:

what a great card! The flowers, the embossing, even the fibers are just perfect! You can tell it took you alot of time. The nest and story are sweet.
Sorry about the social worker, I hope the new one works extra hard for you HUGS

Kelly, girl, you ROCK! that card is awesome. and that's neat that you are sharing the nest and reading the book with the first graders. we have that book, and the nest example is perfect!!!!

with the social worker, I agree with your DH. the change of face might actually be a good thing. fingers crossed!

Beautiful card. Just love the dragonfly and flowers and how you sewed the stems.

What an exciting morning with the birds!

Hope the new SW turns out to be great!
