More Deer in my Yard

We have a huge double window in our homeschool classroom (it’s actually the converted dining area of the kitchen) which allows us to nature watch between math problems, capitalization lessons and science labs.  We have lots of trees filled with squirrels and birds; butterflies flutter by; people walk their dogs past our house (a street runs along side); deer graze on our grass and dart into the woods across the street.  We also have two large bird feeders that attract both birds and squirrels.

This morning a doe and her two little ones (one smaller than the other) walked across the yard before darting into the woods.  A neighbor was walking her dog up the street toward them which probably startled the deer and they took off.   What a cool sight.  Hope they stay longer next time.
