The ducks

One of the favorite evening past times while in TN at the lake was feeding the ducks before bed. There were several different feeding philosophies among the children. One was feed all the fish on the way to the ducks (Nathan), another was to dole out the bread one very careful crumb at a time and in the process make sure that it is all distributed equally and fairly among the ducks--this includes chastisement of the ducks that appear to be too greedy (Ashley--she even spoke duck in the chastisement, completely with quaking), and then John and Sara had the philosophy of tossing it to the ducks and seeing how many could catch the bread mid-air and then stand in wonder at how much bread Ashley had left.
