Growing like weeds

It's a known fact: kids, puppies, kittens, and even ducklings grow up very quickly! It is looking like this might be the last week of duckie fun at our place . . . they are getting their feathers and soon will be ready to go to the lake.

It will be a bittersweet time for us -- we've gotten attached to them! I thought you might like to see them once more. Of course, I'll try to get some photos when we release them at the lake, but ya never know!

The photos above show how their feathers are growing in. A great deal of their backs are still covered by soft down, but their shoulders and chests are getting covered by lovely feathers.

Here's another day in the life of the ducks:

So competitive . . .
Still enjoying the pool:

Still hungry:

Still trying new things:

Still keeping the cat on his toes:

And enjoying the companionship of the dogs:

Hope you enjoyed seeing the ducks again! More quilty stuff tomorrow!
