Looking Back at 2013 – Part 2

Around two years ago I stopped blogging. Living life seemed to get in the way of blogging about it. For a little while, I tried to play catch up and managed to get a half of 2012 blogged but it was lacking the luster of blogging about current events. I hate the idea of having “time gaps” on my blog so I will play catch up with one blog each year, hitting the highlights for 2012 and 2013 rather than blogging each event.

So here is “Looking Back at 2013!”


“Part 2”



Fun along the shores of Lake Sam Rayburn, Adam playing in the water, Austin with his “hobo jug” he found, and with her “Love Rock.”


The Rookery… Rosette Spoonbill Fight, Great Egret Nest, Great Blue Heron


Walking down a gnarly path. A lot of birds to see! Adam had to ditch the binoculars to climb a tree!

High Island Birding Sanctuary Our first time to the Rookery!


Whistling Ducks and Austin took a great pic of a Great-Tailed Grackle.


A great playground and picnic area at the Fort Travis Seashore Park…


Always fun when you can play in the ocean!


Shore Birds!


Mission Tejas had the “leftovers” from a reenactment that we got to check out


But then we geocached with the Cortez Crew and the backhoe playground equipment is always a favorite.

I found more “new” birds in my own yard than I did at the High Island Bird Sanctuary



Redecorated My Classroom complete with Becky Made “Button Push Pins” and Recovered Corkboard to match!


Mother’s Day Flowers, a bird feeder that Stewart and Adam (and Austin & Anna) helped make, a new feeder, craft turntable, and new office chair…I am blessed!

Pentecost! Wild Flowers to represent the tradition that when the Torah was given the Mt Sinai Bloomed Eating cheese and reading (or watching) the book of Ruth are also traditions!
