4 birds hatched
For the past two weeks my brother and I have been watching a robin build its nest. Only a couple of days after the nest was completed there were three eggs in it and the next day there were four. A little more than a week later three of the eggs hatched. The egg that was laid last hatched last. Now the birds are about 5 days old and growing feathers.

My Terrific Tuesday

About a year ago, I was walking outside with my family when Mom said "Look!" We all wondered what it was and found that it was a wild baby rabbit, about the size of my thumb. We tried to catch it, and in its panic it jumped into my shoelace. It got caught there and we had to carefully pull it out. We didn't see the mama rabbit anywhere. We did see fur on the ground and Thomas, the cat, near by, so we put it in a box with grass and hay inside. Then we stopped by the house of a Mennonite family down the road who raised Rabbits. We asked them to take care of it for us and they kept him in a cage with a mother rabbit for three days until it ran away. Sadly we didn't have time to take any pictures of the rabbit, but my family and I will probably never forget it.
