This is Elijah. He’s my nephew. Isn’t he adorable? (Shhh! Don’t tell him I called him adorable – he wouldn’t think that was manly!)

He’s a typical kid who loves kid stuff.

I love it when he comes to spend the weekend with us.

This morning before church as I was hanging clothes as they came out of the dryer I heard the kitchen screen door quietly close. I looked up and Elijah was walking to the nest box door with determined purpose. I watched as he opened the door, reached in, retrieved two eggs, closed the door and headed back for the house – with a quiet little smile on his face.

He loves gathering eggs.

I love that he gets to gather eggs.
