We may be moooving our new farm animal this weekend; I'll save that news for when I have pictures, (but I gave you a big hint).
I have a humorous tale that would have been picture worthy involving James and I on the chicken roof and ladder at 10:30 at night in the pretty heavy rain. Let's just leave it at the fact that the baby guineas are too stupid to walk up a one foot wood ramp to put themselves to bed, yet can fly 12 feet up and climb through the chicken mansion roof wire. I didn't dare leave them up all night since the first rainy night, three of them literally drowned right by the ramp. So, James retrieved them off the wire by climbing over the roof peak and bringing them to me one at a time, while I climbed up and down the ladder and dried them with a towel. In spite of all our precautions, we are already down to 21 baby guineas from the original 30 - the first few died from mysterious causes and two escaped are were eaten by an numerous wild animals.
Our today fun was Selah's 1st grade teacher invited Selah back to the end of the year party. Elijah and Bella and I accompanied her for the last 1.5 hours of the day. This is a teacher who goes over and beyond; I am thankful the time that Selah had her.
The beauty of living in a small area is that we now see her at the pool almost everyday since swim team has started.
