Today, when we took our daughter and niece to their Driver’s Ed class, we were amazed to see a mama goose had decided to make a nest right outside the office buildings where the class was held. Nestled into the dirt of the flowerbed, this goose has decided that she is hidden enough behind the tiny, green bush.
Daddy goose wandered the parking lot. He wandered around the Driver’s Ed cars, the downed branches and trees from the recent wind storm, and away from my daughter and nephew, who were trying to get a closer look. We were a bit early, but soon 20-30 teens arrived and filed past near the nest. Mama goose put her neck out and looked a bit nervous, but stayed put.
We talked to a man who was waiting for his teen’s class to start, and he said the mama goose had stood up and there were eggs under her.
I can’t wait to see if she’s still there next Sunday afternoon. Now, that’s determination! Let’s hope we can show the same tenacity while teaching our daughter to drive:)
