For the Love of Ducks

Chipping ice on the duck pond

Yesterday morning, Hannah set her alarm for o’dark-thirty. By 6:15 a.m. she was out at the pond chipping away at the ice to make a swimming hole for the ducks. She worked at this for 30 minutes before the school bus arrived. I wonder how much longer this display of affection for the ducks will last?

    Hey All

    I love to see Miss Hannah, such a wonderful young lady, so caring for others. Especially Animals.

    I too live on a farm and know the challenges of everyday life, however I wouldn’t have it any other way.

    Hope you and your family have a Happy Thanksgiving!!
