It was nice to get to visit with the other families. The moms of the boys in Malachi's den are very friendly, and we have started a bunco group to get to know each other better, so it was especially nice to get to visit with them. Lydia found a friend her age, and she had a ball playing with that little girl all afternoon.
In chicken news, I am very sorry to report that we lost Leaf a few days ago to a raccoon. Leaf was our oldest chicken (2 years old), and definately a favorite with all of us. We have increased the chicken security, and I think they should now be safe at night, but we'll see. (Of course, I thought they were secure before Leaf got eaten, too...) On the bright side, the hurt chicken is now fully participating with the other chickens in scratching around the yard, so it looks like she will make a full recovery.
