A few days ago, we spent a lot of time outside with the ducklings, Finnigan, the boys and dogs. We had a great time! Katelyn took pictures of the ducklings.

Skittles, Jellybean and Twizzler
Beautiful Twizzler turns more white each day.
Skittles looks like he has a little mohawk on top.
Ryan has their attention.
Finnigan had been a little testy with the ducklings prior to this week. He would grab duckling fluff and pull. Of course, he ended up in ducky time out and told "NO! That was Shamie!"
We were curious as to what his behavior toward the ducklings once outside . . .
We were pleasantly surprised. Finnigan began herding them.
He walked with them, walked circles around them and simply "hung out" with the ducklings - that are almost as big as he is now.
A little loving from Daddy!
Finnigan and Twizzler.
Finnigan has begun protecting and defending the ducklings.
Finnigan is showing off again!
Did I tell you that Finnigan went to school the other day?
He did so very well!
The kiddos and teachers all loved him.
He was certainly in an element he didn't mind.
The children all pet and talked to him.
He stood still and let them "love" him.
He visited three second grade and one first grade class.
Finnigan was pretty tired when we got home.
He slept for the afternoon.
Who would have thought a Duck would be such a wonderful
show and tell?!
