How do you come up with ideas about what to write?
I hope that you use some of my pictures to come up with questions, and with some stories of your own. I really like it when you send me questions to answer. I hope that you are practicing your handwriting so I can read your questions!
Animals always like breakfast. Some people don't eat much breakfast, some people eat a lot of breakfast!
then the chickens have to wait until the turkeys eat what they want and go away.
What other sounds can you hear?
Echo likes breakfast, too.
As soon as I open the gate she comes in and goes right to her bucket of grain.
She gets breakfast while I milk her.
Sometimes she makes a mess on the floor when I get done milking her.
|Look at how much Loki is growing!|
He gets to wear a halter now.

I found a bunch of eggs this week. Sometimes the chickens hide them in places I don't find for a while. I don't know if the eggs are good or bad until I bring them in the house. Sometimes the eggs are fresh, sometimes they are too old to use.
|One way to tell if the eggs are fresh or old is to put them in a bucket of water.|
If the eggs float, they are too old to use.
There are a lot of eggs at the bottom of the bucket,
and three eggs that are floating.
I put them in the garden. They are good fertilizer and help the plants grow.
|This chicken likes to lay her eggs in the feeders inside the stall.|
Those eggs are always easy to find.
This is one of the chickens that Mrs. Jorgensen brought to us early in the summer.
She's so pretty!
|All of this fleece is getting turned into blankets to send to Houston.|
|Our part of the project is to put this embroidery on every blanket.|
Our goal is 100 blankets and 100 pillowcases by the end of September.
That's a big project!
Mrs. Hahn is helping us with this project, too!
