This is Lydia wondering our yard freely she had been out of her enclosure for good for about a week, just wondering and eating bugs and checking everything out.Well July the fifth she discovered freedom all on her own, and how good it felt and we are so happy for her.
Lydia found her own way into the river and was off like a bullet. She is so happy and diving and splashing all over. She has since found a group of ducks she seems to swim with, which is wonderful for her, she needs to learn things from them we cannot show her. So it is so wonderful to see her so happy and well. Madeline is still a bit teary eyed, but, knows if she had not saved her she would not have this chance to go out an be a big duck. And who knows next year she may come back and build her nest right here. She still thinks Madeline is her mom, and comes to her when she calls her.
We feel so blessed to have had a hand in helping one of Gods little ones grow and then letting it go home. - reminds me of the day my chicks will leave the nest , made me a bit teary eyed myself-.Perhaps the lessons where meant for me more then the kids.
