Today was gorgeous . . . not hot or humid, nice breeze, perfect if you are like me and don’t like hot hot summer. We probably should have fired up the lawn mowers, but we opted to do a bit of housecleaning and then sit outside with the chickens and goats, while trying to train Yodel (outside dog) to leave those critters alone. She does great when a particular collar is on. Great nephew Cooper and great niece Cammie were here with their mom and grandparents to see the animals. Cammie was determined to see a hen lay an egg; I didn’t think she would catch the timing just right, but she did! Described it perfectly . . . “The egg was slimy but now it’s dry.” She and Cooper gathered several before they left. Can’t believe how fast those kids are growing. They are smart, and when you teach smart kids to talk, life is forever after interesting!
