Ok, so I have to admit, I don’t really like feeding our chickens and gathering their eggs everyday. I do love seeing them walk around the yard and the endless hours of entertainment they give my children. And of course I love their yummy eggs. So it’s nice during the spring and summer when I can go a few days without having to fill up their waterer or gather their eggs. But now that most nights are below freezing, we have to gather the eggs and carry fresh water to them everyday. So here we are doing our morning chores.
And this ends up happening. Look at that little boy in the distant, he has the biggest smile on his face.
I fill up the waterer while he throws food to the chickens.
She always gets to carry the eggs back while my little guy runs as fast as he can back into the house to sneak some gum. And he thinks I don’t know.
Ok, so it’s not so bad. I do love watching the kids run outside in their footie J’s helping momma out. Yes, it would take me about 35 minutes less to do it by myself, but really, what else would we be doing? I’m just wondering how many kids will be following this momma out when there is a foot of snow on the ground. And will they still be wearing just their footie J’s?
