Bird’s Nest in our Swingset

About a week ago a robin had made a nest on the side of our swingset, but the nest promptly fell down due to weather or kids (we're not sure which). I found her nest on the ground while mowing and wedged it back into place, and by the end of that same day she had laid her first egg:

We've roped off the area around her nest and made sure all the kids know not to mess with her eggs. Since then she has laid another egg (for a total of two) and so far seems to be doing well. Here's hoping we have some baby birds soon!
