Today is the first day of school. Anisa is in 11th grade and Sara is in 8th grade. It's shocking how fast time goes! Here are a couple of pics of the girls. Sara and Sam walked to school this morning. Anisa didn't have to go to school until noon. Lucky for her because she just got home last night from Washington.
Our next exciting thing that happened today was a new friend! A pileated Woodpecker! He was HUGE!!!! He flew onto the tree as I was at the sink and I started yelling to Travis. Travis was afraid I'd scare him, but I didn't...luckily. :) He saw the suet, smelled the suet and finally got to the suet. I'm guessing he was around 13-15 inches long. We've been waiting for a pileated woodpecker to visit us forever. We usually only see the little downy woodpeckers ~who we like, but this guy was a special treat! :) I was so happy Travis just happened to be home for lunch!! Now I must finish my chores. Have a fantastic day! :)
