Brady called the girls over to a palm tree. All I heard was "I found something" and he made Maryrose lift up a piece of palm tree... under it was a dead bird. Of course all the girls started screaming and yelling like girls should. We told them not to touch the bird and left it alone.
They went off and played something else. Then I heard "Oh, let's have a funeral" with one ear... but I didn't really pay attention too much, I was having fun singing the itsy, bitsy spider to Maggie.
Before I knew it they came running back with a cup, coverd with a piece of wood (palm tree bark... or whatever you want to call it). Can you see where I'm going? They wanted to hold a funeral for the bird!! Smart Brady knew he wasn't allowed to touch the bird, so he pushed it into a cup with that piece of wood. They tossed the bird into the water to set him free. They watched him for a long time... will he sink or float? Then it was time to pray for the bird. Look at Janie... isn't she just too precious? She was giving it her all.
Look, we got them all to stand there for a cool picture... even Maggie!!!
She didn't last long though.
To the little bird, I hope you rest in peace.
