The boys are in school, but they did get up happy this morning. They seem to be adjusting to the school year now. Malachi even admitted that school was "good" a few days ago, so that's an improvement!
Lydia's doing good with potty training.
We all went to a local orchard and picked apples. (not tons) This place has an ice cream shop, too, so that was a nice treat as well, and I got lots of peppers for our meals this week, seranos, anchos, and bells. Mmm. We plan to go back in about a month and pick lots of apples, for applesauces and jams/butters.
By the way, Elijah told me the other day that he doesn't know what he wants to be when he grows up, but maybe a teacher or an orchard worker. I had to smile.
The chickens are doing great. Since Nathaniel stapled the netting to the top of the second fence, the chickens have been enjoying that yard without any more issues. (Knock wood) Lydia and I did let them into the third yard for a little bit this morning. I think it's like heaven for chickens, at least that's how they seem to take it! We are only letting them in that yard when we're outside, though.
I had a few tomatoes, enough to make a good salsa for the Saturday afternoon visit to a neighbor's pool. We had snacks and swam. It was nice.
