I took this photo at 11:21AM EST this morning . . .
Gaby is, as I was expecting, crestfallen. However, after she dried her tears and told me that she hoped the babies would come back after they were all grown up and raise their own babies in that very same nest, she went and sat at her desk and started writing stories about what Pippa, Twitter, Flutter and Bambi were doing out in the great big world.
Good luck fledglings.
Good luck to anyone who finds themselves graduating from your own nest, be it high school, college, or even Kindergarten. May the big wide world embrace you and may you embrace it back.
Spread your wings and fly!
