Chickens and Baseball

Hey all!  Hope everybody had a happy Mother's Day!  We went out to my Mom's to help her do some more work at her house.  We also got to see the new house.  She's moving back to my hometown hopefully by the end of the year.  The new house was built in 1993 and it's pretty obvious that it hasn't really been updated since then.  Yikes!

We did bring back a few things.  Here's the biggest.  Dad built the coop last year sometime and it wasn't being used.  AND we thinned Mom's flock a little.  There are 5 laying hens in there.  Turns out it wasn't enough to keep the dog out though.  She managed to get one of the hens last night so my more permanent solution is going to have to be figured out sooner rather than sometime this summer.

Here's the first egg just hours after being set up!

We've also been busy with baseball.  Practice started in April with games starting last week.

I have been making some progress though.  One Nation has mostly been out at work over lunch.  I have finished the star that was in progress here.  

The Master has seen a little progress.  When we've gotten home from ball practice all I want to do is get the boys to bed and read for a little while until I go to bed.

You've been busy! Hope you get those chickens protected, soon! How awesome to have fresh eggs! I miss those baseball days. Ty and Matt played baseball thru High school and even though there were some really cold games, I miss it terribly. Enjoy!
