yeah, he felt a little freaked out
So then we wondered, why isn't he flying out? Willem grabbed the end of the mop to see
if he could be coaxed.
He did fly out. It was very startling!! Yes, we were expecting it, but he seemed large in this tiny cabin.
And, he didn't fly out - of the cabin. He headed over to our candy dish and jars of buttons...
I went around the the outside of the window and tried to shoo
the woodpecker away. Hoping it would head for an open door.
We heard some "knocking" and Willem said "I think he is pecking!
Do you see his pecker?" I had a hard time staying upright. This whole
rescue mission had me laughing my head off.
I started getting loud and making large get out of here gestures with my hands.
But, he found a different, more lovely perch.
Hazel was so ready for a nap at this point, so we got her up to the house, gave her a little snack and to my amazement she fell asleep in her highchair!! I don't think our children have ever done this before. Once we laid her down, Will and I checked to see if the woodpecker had flown away - and he had!
Each day is an adventure. And I love hanging out with these kids!
October is such a fun month!!! Autumn colors, two birthdays in our family, football, Halloween, soccer - we are enjoying it.
Merit is so, so excited for his birthday Thursday! We will have an eight year old in the house!
