For those of you who remember us bringing home a 2 week old, syringe feeding, baby Cockatiel back in January,…

Yes, Captain Jack is still alive, healthy and happy. And I think..maybe.. He’s a she. Duh duh duhhhh..

He’s six month’s old now and he’s molting:

The yellow striped feathers are growing back in (the boys are supposed to lose those when they molt.) But the yellow on his/her face has spread and gotten brighter (which it’s not supposed to do if it’s a girl.) I’m also pretty sure Captain Jack is a “cinnamon” — meaning not a Normal Gray. Whichever, I love his/her colorings and we’re still happy to have Captain Jack. Or, Captain Jaq. Or whatever.

I love to write and I hope to use that wisely, to encourage others, and for God’s glory. I seek purpose in the mundane. I want my kids to see God’s fingerprints throughout all of creation, learning, and life. As I teach our children, God is teaching me through this homeschool journey, too. I love Jesus, family, coffee, words, and the color teal.
