Something I really enjoyed about our new home was that with more than fifty trees in our yard there was an abundance of birds. Their cheerful songs filled the air all day long and I loved listening to them.
There was a big maple tree right outside the living room beside our sandbox. A family of squirrels lived in it and we spent many happy hours watching them as they chased each other playfully and later were busy storing nuts for the winter.
One day as the children were playing in the sandbox there were little bits of something falling down on them. they were puzzled until they looked up to see a squirrel sitting on a branch above their heads getting a nut ready to eat Making little bits of the shell fall down on their heads. The squirrels were used to having them play in the sandbox and never bothered to scamper away from them.
Sailor was sure the squirrel was making the bits of nut shell fall on them on purpose and was thrilled about it.
