Alex's class has been learning about animals' life cycles recently at school. As part of their class, they have been checking in on a nest of baby Eagles as well as a nest of owls, via webcams. We've been watching them at home, too, especially the baby Eaglets. Its quite addictive, and we've spent a lot of time over the past week on the Eaglecam!

This morning, unfortunately, they learned about the end of an animal's life cycle. Their class' very own Peter Rabbit passed away over night, and I was volunteering in the room when Ms. Stading called everyone to the carpet for a very sad class meeting. I think I (and the other mom) probably cried more than the children did, but oh, was this a painful hour to be with eighteen sad little kiddos. Peter was a great class pet, and he will be missed.
