Bunny Nest

One of our favorite games to play outside is “explorer.”  Basically, I hide small toys in the backyard while the kids close their eyes.  Then, we go hunting for the items while singing the Dora the Explorer song, “Come on, vamanos!  Everybody let’s go!…etc.”  Sometimes we really get into it and wear our backpacks.

Anyway, today while we were searching for hidden Sonic kid’s meal toys, we found this little bunny nest.

It’s hard to tell, but I counted six or seven little babies.  They are about three inches long and so, so cute!  It was a great opportunity for me to teach them about God’s creation, mamas and babies, and what animals eat. 

We had to come inside because there is now a severe thunderstorm, and the kids were VERY worried about the bunnies’ safety during the storm.  When we prayed before naptime, Grace asked God to “help the mama bunny find the baby bunnies and get them an umbrella.”

If I thought that was precious, how much more does our loving all-merciful heavenly Father hear and count Gracie's prayer as precious. "If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him."--Matthew 7:11
