My sweet youngest Niece has a way with the birds. She has a squeeky little voice, a precious voice, it hits a certain pitch when she calls the birds for an afternoon treat. She goes into the big chickenyard, climbs up the chickenhill, and begins her bird call. The chickenhill is a wonderful place to sit, I would venture it is about 12 feet tall, and such a great view of our property, no wonder the barnyard critters love to go up there. I watch this little wondergirl time and time again, and it makes my heart swell. The turkeys, ducks, chickens, roosters, and chicks all come running as fast as their little legs will carry them.....some even fly, they have such a need to come there so quickly, to see what their sweet girl has brought them this time. She carefully pulls apart the bread pieces, throws them to the wind and the critters are in their glory, they have no fear of her, they know her well. She is still calling them, this sound I will never forget....the voice of a young child, in all her glory. These memories of her barnyard friends will bring her wonderful feelings for the rest of her life.
She is my partner in crime around here, she is many times by my side, doing this, doing that, watching, learning, curious about every little thing she can see. She will be going into Grade 1 this year. Finally, she will be in a world with some girls, instead of so many little young boys. She is a tomboy, there is not a doubt in my mind. But with the little girls that she will make friends with in her school, she may soon turn into a girly girl. She is so tough, she can keep up with the best of the boys around here, yeah for my cool little Niece!!!! Enjoy these pictures.....AND.....Have a great and wonderful day, Cindi
