Can you see it!??! oh what joy!!! Anna was the first up so she received the honor to pick it up! We waited for the other 3 to wake up and Anna scooped it up with all excitement she could muster!
(blinker blinker) change of subject-I am walking in the morning before school (yeah we are doing math and grammar thru the summer, and chicken as science). We had explained to the numerous neighborhood children, as they like to ring the doorbell, and forget we are still in school. I told Anna we needed to make a sign...so my daughter made one:
Remember this awesome woman? She is the one we met in the parking lot to pick up the two wild (free range) hens from yesterday. Today, her sister (our dear friend, LIsa) called and said, I have two more chickens! oh we were excited...Janeice knows so much, she is like have an encyclopedia teach but with fun stories. I told her we need to have her come once a week and teach science by Janeice...cause it is fun!!
She brought two more hens, they are a year older than those from yesterday and hand trained and sweet and cuddly. Too cuddly for Eric, who held one and had chicken poop shoot out onto his shirt. My clean freak boy was not amused, but he said he does like the chickens!
Then, we dropped Eric off at the library for his job! (insert proud momma beaming) He is helping with the summer reading program and has a t-shirt to wear (that the chicken pooped on, but we rewashed it).
I am racing around trying to get a unit study together so we can learn and see! These chickens are amazing!
