Happy Mother's Day!

Swimming Lessons

10 ducks shown, one was with mama Ivy

Elmer Jr. Playing king of the feeder

I couldn't imagine being a happier mother than Ivy is with all of her little ducklings. Unfortunately there is a bit of sadness as there are now only 11:( There is one that is all black. I guess we should call that one Elmer Jr. He's a fiesty one and seems he wants to be first at everything. lol I don't know how many are girls or boys at this point. I guess we shall wait and see.

Mother's Day for me us usually a lonely one. The kids are grown and gone, so Mother's Day is just memories away. I wonder if Ivy will feel that way too when they decide to leave home.

I know what you're talking about today being lonely. I don't have any human kids and my mom passed 10 years ago. *sigh* But it's only one day and I'm happy for all the moms out there.
