|Glad we had some new toys to keep us busy inside!|
I took care of Ayden's bedtime routine and he fell asleep by 7:30. My mom is on standby to come and sit at our house in case he wakes up while I go out and help David find the rest if he needs me. It is getting very cold tonight and we would sleep much better knowing all of our girls are home, safe and warm.
This is part of farming. It comes with the territory. We have living creatures under our care and it is our responsibility to do everything in our power to keep them safe, even if that means trudging around in the dark with flashlights, in teen temps. I guess while we are in this cold spell, we might need to leave them cooped up if they are just going to seek shelter elsewhere all day anyway. Something to think and talk about his evening.
**Edited to let you know that we finally found all 14 chickens and got them nestled into their coop for the night. David was able to get all but one on his own and after Ayden was asleep I went out and helped coax the 14th out from under the shed with a rake. A taste of the farmer's life indeed!**
And now I will leave you with a clip of the most infectious laughter you've ever heard. And all over a rubber band... He cracks himself up!
The true story is that he was laughing at the fact that he could get Maverick to jump every time he plucked the rubber band. We hear the same laughter when he chases Maverick around the house with the swiffer or his new roller suitcase. Mav and Polly are such good sports.
Flashback! Here's what we were up to one year ago today: "Sabatage"
