We had visitors today. I was sitting in the living room with the kids, making a blanket fort when the mighty four year old said "Look mommy... deer." Sure enough, there were two deer casually sauntering past our window. The boys stayed quiet and still (I was so proud of them) while I dove for my camera.
They carefully picked their way through the back yard, past the chicken coop, and to the trail that runs through the back woods and off into the county land.
We commonly see their footprints in the driveway, but rarely see them out in the open during the day; and never this close to the house, so this was a real treat.
