i once spoke the language of flowers...
“Education is a life. That life is sustained on ideas. Ideas are of spiritual origin, and God has made us so that we get them chiefly as we convey them to one another, whether by word of mouth, written page, Scripture word, musical symphony; but we must sustain a child’s inner life with ideas as we sustain his body with food.” Charlotte Mason

I completely forgot to post a picture of our new girls, or at least some of them. Can't get the girls to all stand still together!

[127/365] happy fence friday

Nehemiah 9:6 - You alone are the LORD. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you.

Just pretty!

New Chickens Soon

I have been wanting more chickens for awhile, but haven't been able to find what I was looking for. So patience as been the word!

Patience has paid off, a gentleman that I serve with on the farmers market board has what I want!! He has RIR young hens.

So William and Hayden re-purposed the wood from the kids old play set and have almost finished the new chicken coop and the nesting boxes are done.

We should be able to bring the new girls home later this week!

This will give us enough eggs for our use and sale at the farmers market.
