I was thinking of him this morning as we got ready for or field trip to the pet store. See, we showed up at the store before my sister, so we sat in the car for a few minutes waiting. Monkey quickly noticed a bird in the tree near our van. He pointed and yelled about it repeatedly. It was a robin. A sign of spring, new growth, warmth, melted snow, warm rain showers, and muddy boots.
I wish I hope my boys learn to love birds the way he did. I sure miss him.
