I am such a proud father! I was out with my two kiddies walking through the woods and exploring some marsh areas this morning. We were following a deer trail and I noticed some deer droppings (scat) and thought I might point them out to Emma and Tanner but decided we better keep moving as they were getting tired. They do good at noticing deer and animal tracks but I haven't taught them much in the way of other animal sign. I kept walking and Emma who was about 10 feet behind shrieked in excitement; "Look Daddy! Deer poopies! I was way impressed and amazed first that she noticed them between the grass and leaves and two that she knew what they were!

What more could a survival and tracking-crazed dad ask for?
