To start off our mini farm we bought 50 chicks this week! We got three different breeds: Rhode Island Reds, Barred Rocks, and Welsummers.  We had chickens many years ago, but it's been awhile and I am so excited to have chickens and fresh eggs again!

These little guys are just as cute now as they were when I was six years old.  I'm ten years older now and I should be more mature, but I still have so much fun playing with them and holding them.  That may sound silly of me, but I really can't help myself!  :)

Sleeping!  :)

Off the topic of chicks, this is a picture of Isaac reading his new favorite book. It's called The Backyard Homestead Guide to Raising Farm Animals.  Mom and Dad bought it for him at the last homeschool convention. This book contains a wealth of information on all sorts of farm animals from chickens to goats to cows to bees to rabbits to pigs (and more). Isaac has really enjoyed reading it, and he's learned so much about raising farm animals. I like to call him our expert on all things farm.  :)



  1. They're SO CUTE, Kiah!! Ahh! I need to take a trip to your new house ASAP... :)

  2. Yes you do! :) You'd better hurry up though, because chicks grow fast and they don't stay cute for very long....


I love hearing your comments! As you leave them, please keep in mind Ephesians 4:29: "Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear." Thank you!
