Weekly Wrap Up-The Week our Chickens Died
This past week has been full of ups and downs. It was beyond busy-it was insane busy. My oldest had a pen of broilers at our local county fair for 4-H- this meant that we had to be at the fair twice a day (or more!) to feed and water his birds. It also meant spending a couple full days at the fair with all five of our children ages 11-2...enough said!!
Monday was spent at the fair. It was a show day and we stayed to ride some rides.
Tuesday morning we took our remaining chickens to the butcher where we had a very interesting science class...some of the kids chose to watch the chicken processing procedure....I did not! My four year old learned about life and death and we all mourned our chickens passing.
Wednesday we went to our local pool since admission was half off for fair week. Price for six people $13.50!! All the kids loved the pool and so did I!
Thursday was auction day. We were at the fair bright and early and stayed all day. Our youngest daughter (age 2) decided to potty train that day so I spent a lot of time walking down the hill to the flush bathroom! My son earned $200 for his pen of birds so he was happy!
Friday has been a catch up day. I cleaned the house and did laundry. We also managed to get some friend time in too.
