Maddie and Jake thought this was pretty cool and we all watched for a bit. Jake had to eat breakfast. Maddie was already dressed and fed so she watched and updated us all.
Soon our feathered friend was joined by another.
We've been very lucky so far in that ducks haven't really found our pool (KNOCK ON WOOD!). As a kid we grew up with a pool that ducks found every spring and we would often have to go out in the morning and scare them away. They were tougher and tougher to scare away each year. Part of me wanted to go out and scare them away and another part thought they were fine as long as they were in the front yard. Who knows, maybe Mr. Duck is playing games with me and trying to lull us into a sense of complacency until he makes his move to the backyard. But I'm watching....
And they left two deposits on our front walk. Mike will be thrilled.
