Why were ticks invented? Sawyer had one on the back of his ear after we were exploring in the woods. I SHOULD know better and should have checked him, I guess I was holding on to false hope that it was still too cold for those f'ers. Alas I was mistaken.
We are getting some new baby chicks soon! They are just the cutest things in my opinion. We lost one to some medical condition we had no idea was occurring and then we lost another one due to a hawk. Losing Edith was sad, I felt like we failed her even though we truly thought we had built a fortress. I guess we sort of succeeded because the hawk was trapped IN the enclosure. Alas poor Edith died for nothing because the hawk couldn't get her back out. The hawk actually confronted Ron before Ron knew it was there. He said it was quite alarming, so he closed the coop doors and left the enclosure door open in the hopes the giant creature would leave. It did. Then Ron buried Edith in the yard. So! I am excited to get a few more and hopefully do a better job handling them so they will tolerate out presence. ha
I have an appointment for Sawyer for his Kindergarten registration next week. Its hard to believe both kiddos will be at school all day next year! Ron is excited for me to get a PT job... I don't think he understands how much flexibility is needed for a mom job (sick days, holidays, random school days off, summer) but I will try. I also have started back on the soap/salve journey so we shall see.
Happy Thursday all!
