(1) Balloons for my birthday party that were swiftly severed from their strings by the kids.
(2) My friend reunited the balloons with their strings, and the kids went crazy with joy.
(3) Our cat likes to climb trees to stalk birds.
(4) Our daycare provider is raising three little mallard ducklings! (In addition to her backyard chickens.) When I picked the kids up today, we got to watch the ducklings swim in a tub and run around the backyard.
