Well, the coop has been ordered and is on its way. We are out to get the chicks this weekend and start them in a brood box in the house until they grow big enough to be set outside in the coop. I have so many ideas running through my mind about how I want to paint and decorate the coop (I know, who thinks about these things? Apparently I do.). Since this is a such a new experience for us, I want our coop to be cool and interesting. I also don't want it to be just another eyesore in our backyard (which, truth be told, is what all of the backyard really is at the moment - one big eyesore), so I want to add some color and fun to what is actually just a big square of dirt. Hopefully, if the coop (and the garden fence) are colorful and cool, then it will help us to be more inspired to fix up the backyard more quickly.
I always seem to be saying this in regards to this website...where does the time go? Away, away, away. So, as this, my last professional school year, is coming to an end and homeschooling will begin, I am hoping that time will slip away from me a little less quickly and I will be able to maintain this a bit more faithfully.
Here are the posts that I will keep of all of our family fun moments. We try to have them a lot and really enjoy our time together (esp. since we know that little ones become big so quickly).
