ROW 1: games and dyeing (Miah dyed the spotty one.)2:We tilled about half the garden up and planted a variety of leftover flower and herb seeds. The chickens scratch a lot in there, so it was kind if a "let's just see what will come up" effort. Miah's research on yeast. 3:Larkin's and Miah's nature journals 4:Larkin's science experiment on camouflage. Rohan learning the letter B.  5.Visiting with Grampa.  Everyday play.  6. Cuteness.  7.We tried hatching out some eggs in an incubator.  The temperature in the incubator was terribly unstable and only one egg hatched.  Somehow, at a week or so old, the one chick ended up in the rain.  When Larkin found it, it wasn't moving at all except for an occasional gasp for air.  It looked to me like a completely lost cause but didn't want Larkin to think I was just cruel and heartless, so we wrapped it in a washcloth and stuck it in the oven.  Larkin insisted I look up on the internet what to do for it.  I didn't even know what to type in.  "How to save a dying chick that spent the night in a storm"?  I ended up looking up chick pneumonia, and Larkin found a page that suggested feeding the chick garlic water.  So he made some.  The chick lived.  ~Elowen helped me dye and wash some alpaca.  8.Baby bunnies at a couple days old.  9.Cutie pie.  Zahana practicing with Miah's cross country team.  10.Stacking and digging.  11. Playing at Abram's Creek.  12.Elowen wanted to hold Grampa's hand when we went for a walk.  Rohan can never have too many floaties.  13.We bought a bus.  New sand.  14.Just playing.  15.My yarn display at the library.  16.Miah racing.  Her time keeps improving.  17.making words and making cheese rings.
