As I was finishing video taping a moment of our day during “open classroom”, Lily’s mom walked in with our new girl Zebra Finch for our lonely boy Finch since his long time partner, Frya died this past year. She looked at me and said, “this is just a little piece of heaven”.

Yep. I confess. We often achieve utopia.

And of course her name is Lily.

Mr. Henry the Finch thanks you very much. They began snuggling right away and finally happy chirps filled the room.
