I met online a wonderful woman who loves chickens and children and was thrilled to invite us to her farm to share her flock, her knowledge and give both of our children several chickens for free as well, to use for 4H and Youth Poultry shows. She even went to a good friends house to obtain some super tiny birds too for them. We made it to Vegas, went and grabbed lunch then headed to her home. We went through many poultry walk in pens. It was wonderful to see all the different breeds, colors, learn about them and hear how much she loved raising them. We also met turkeys, 2 pigs and 3 dogs...along with some 20yr old koi fish. Its so wonderful when you connect with people with similar interests and passions. She truly was so kind and I have no doubt we'll stay in touch for a very long time.
A few other things we did last week...Library Books, Home made Cheese Crackers, our Rock Candy grew and some puppy snuggle time.
Still to come this week...our weekly Library trip, a field trip with fellow homeschoolers to learn about pigeons, a trip to the grocery store in which the kids will get the items off the list and estimate the expenses together, some more poultry education and a trip to grandpa's to grind some wheat!
