“What is it, mama?” she came, breathless at the tone of my voice, what could it be?
and she spied the brown orb as well, “Oh my gosh…”
And we hugged and jumped, like, real life did that. Well, it’s been 5 months with these chickies, and we had still been buying eggs, so to see this was very exciting. They did it!
The first eggs that chickens lay are usually very, very small, as the chickens begin to lay normal sized eggs as time goes on.
|Good job girls, or girl. Just two are laying at this point, but we are still so proud of them|
|Finley’s new jeans I scored at a garage sale for 50 cents, I think they are some fancy girl brand, but that’s ok. 🙂|
We loaded the soil into the garden bed and planted rows of green beans, bell pepper, watermelon and….Giant pumpkins. My kids just love watermelon, and eagerly watch the tiny seedlings, imagining what’s to come.
The kids have been loving watering, and watching the tender green seedlings uncurl from under the dirt, lifing their leaves up and out to catch the sun.
