Aren't these baby ducklings the cutest!? Our class walked over to check them out several weeks ago. One morning a week or so ago, they were scattered all along the shore of the pond and I just couldn't resist snapping a few pictures. They were so tiny when I took this picture, but they've already grown so much and don't have to follow Mama around anymore. They can swim on their own in the pond and weren't anywhere near Mama yesterday when I dropped the kids off at school.
Mama Duck keeping a close eye on her babies... I wonder if she misses the infant stage.
