picking up chicks

chicks
hope you had a great holiday weekend! we picked up these little cuties to join our flock once they get big enough. we still have one of our original chickens (the little black one there), and we also have an araucana we bought mid-year. these are a barnevelder, a golden sexlink, and a rhode island red. i am not sure which is which, but i believe we'll be able to tell as they grow.

woolly eggs

wool eggs
we made up some of rachel's felt eggs with sweater scraps. just like my childhood eggs, these have initials for each child. we already played with them a few times with just a few jellybeans tucked inside.

mauling the daffodil
we are outside every time the sun peeks out. those moments have been few and far between lately! here's to sunnier skies ahead!
