THE WINNER for last week’s giveaway (chosen by random number) is: reneegrace who wrote: "We actually saw a robin last week. But that is weird (we are in Anchorage, AK) as they are not usually around until MUCH later… May more like it. We’ll see how he fares. I’m hoping we’ll have a Robin’s nest outside our windows like we did the first year we moved into our house." Thanks to all of your great comments we now know a little more about these wonderful birds: Magpies, Robins, Cardinals, Ruby Throated Humming Birds, Terns, Flickers, Bushtits, Juncos, Starlings, Chickadees, Mountain Blue Birds, Crows, Swallows, Grackles and Blue Jays! If you are interested in the great book Cindy suggested, you can find it here. We love our copy, and play the bird songs so often we think our dogs feel like they've moved into an aviary! Thank you to everyone who entered last week’s giveaway! This week we will be offering this amazing Child's Hand Woven Palm Sun Hat (size 6 5/8")! Made of sustainable materials, it provides UPF50+ to keep the sun's rays at bay while you explore the great outdoors! To enter the giveaway, simply respond to this week’s forum topic in the comments for this post. If you ever have a question that you would like answered in this space feel free to send us your suggestions at email@example.com. This week’s topic is: How does the extra hour of sunlight affect your daily activities in the spring? We have been loving the extra hour in the evening, but waking up has definitely been hard this week, and our horses and sheep aren't quite sure what to do with it yet... The giveaway will close next Wednesday March 18th at 11:59pm MST and the winner (picked by a random number generator) will be announced Thursday March 19th! Good Luck!
