Today is the last day of school, both for the Seattle’s public school system as well as for the baby birds that hatched
a couple of weeks ago on a statue in front of our front door. Some local robins built a nest on top of the status
by local artist Steve Jensen. I hope he approves, but I think its a great testament to how cool the statue is that
the birds thought it was a perfect spot.
The four chicks had been growing quite a bit and yesterday they didn’t even fit in the nest anymore.
This morning as we headed out the door for Fen’s last day of school they were standing up and one of them
flew, clumsily but without incident to a nearby tree. Graduation! Another pilot is born.
