Our family grew while we are gone.

Nick-our only boy-is now greatly outnumbered at 9:1.
chicks

Our chicks arrived right before we left in May and our friends were kind enough to nurture them while we were gone. A neighbor gave us their Hilton (hen house) and this past week we moved the girls in. There are six total and it will be a while yet before we get eggs….maybe November. But, man, is Nick happy. He has wanted chickens since we bought our first place six years ago. He and Lya love to go check on the “chi-chis” every day when he gets home from class.

  1. While I wouldn’t actually want to raise chickens (I’ve got my hands full as it is right now!), there’s a part of me that is kind of envious. That’s got to be incredibly cool.
