Green Grass, a Duck, and a Farewell

Duck

Greeting parents and caregivers of young children! It’s finally springtime and I felt compelled to share one of my favorite spring stories with you to celebrate. In March 2009 I adopted a wild duck and (ignoring the sage advice of Dick Van Dyke) named her Gregory Peck. I know, I know. She was only a day old when we found her, so we couldn’t tell if she was a boy or girl. We guessed wrong and by the time we knew for sure, the name had stuck. Anyway, how I came to adopt this little feathery friend is another story.
