A post about why I love my job....again....

Today's program was for a summer camp at a local Christian academy.
More specifically, a "bird camp".
Bird camp? Where was MY bird camp when I was younger???

Greeting me at the door was a banner lovingly made by the kids who were eager for my arrival:

Big colorful letters, and little bird drawings tucked in everywhere...and all the kids signed it!

R bird
Hmmmm...a Great Potoo, perhaps?

Mallard on Banner
A very detailed mallard....

TV on banner
A turkey vulture....

Owl on C
...the most adorable teeny owl sitting on the "C" in Inc....and the "C" is a bird, too!

Eagle on I
And this unfinished eagle, looking very very angry as he says, "Thanks for helping us, Sue Williams."
A great group of kids...all crazy about birds, and all more than willing to sit on a cold floor for an hour and 15 minutes to listen to me exclaim the awesomeness of raptors.

I love my job.

What wonderfully creative kids to make that sign.
I am so glad you tell kids about raptors. The more they know, the more they will care.

Wow, Bird Camp for the kids?! That is AWESOME! And the sign they made for you is great. You are one lucky lady, and I'm glad you have a job you love so much.
