Lesson 999 – Quotable Chicks

Friday’s Quotes for the Chicks

I think, at a child’s birth, if a mother could ask a fairy godmother to endow it with the most useful gift, that gift should be curiosity.

Eleanor Roosevelt

It’s been a busy week.

Got some chick updates:


Today is our oldest daughter’s 16th birthday. Sweet 16 is always a big day for any young woman (and her mama hen) and it’s no different for our Addy. She’s currently in Maine attending a FIRST robotics competition – no worries Addy, have a happy day, there will be cake when you get home.

And we got news from another member of our flock. My son, Trevor, who is at Norwich University, Vermont, received an additional ROTC scholarship which meant he had to take the U.S. Army Oath of Enlistment a little sooner than we had anticipated. He did and my boy is in the army now. God Speed Trev, always remember that you’ve got an entire flock of support behind you.

As for the rest of us, the weather has finally turned in New Hampshire and when I was driving up to the State Capital yesterday, I saw more brown than white on the sides of the road. I’m waiting for that one magical weekend when *everything* seems to pop out green all at once.

With this warmer weather comes plans for the great hen house muck out. I think we’ll be starting on that wonderful project this weekend (best to do it before things get too warm, if you know what I mean.)

 Be safe, stay warm, and see you all next week.
