7 Quick Takes Friday – Volume 78 (Super Quick Takes)

7_quick_takes_sm17 Quick Takes Friday is being hosted by Jen at Conversion Diary. Join other Catholic bloggers as we share 7 Quick Posts within one post.

1. Bird’s Nest
Recently, my husband noticed a nest being built over the light on his studio building (right). He had carefully moved it from on top of the light to a metal frame he made close by (at left, so the eggs wouldn’t fry when the light was turned on). Thankfully, the mother bird returned and carried on as if nothing had happened. The baby birds were in the next when I took this photo, but they kept their heads down so I couldn’t get them in the photo.

2. End of School!
It’s the official end of the school year. My high schooler has been done for a week or so and my youngest son graduated from Grade 8 this past Tuesday. His teacher said that Paul’s first year in the classroom setting was “beyond successful.” And he finished with a solid B plus average. Well done, Paul!

3. Movie Time
My second oldest son and my husband had the unique opportunity of being extras in a movie that was being filmed nearby. They were only on set for one day. Aside from being tired from standing around and a bit sunburned, they had a great experience. I’ll give more details when they become available.

4. Catholic Writers Conference Live

5. Pakenham 5-Span Bridge
