So the Little Farmhands are stuck inside today. Here’s what they’ve been doing this afternoon:
They are just aching to go outside!
I was doing some other chores while the children watched the rain. Suddenly I heard, “Mama! Mama! Mama! Come quickly!” When they say my name three times in a row, it can only mean one thing. Big. Hairy. Emergency. (It’s not always my definition of an emergency, but it’s an emergency to them, nonetheless.) But the next thing they said struck terror into my heart. “The PIPE! Look at the PIPE!”
You can’t tell in the picture, but the rain is coming down really hard out there… The last thing I need is a broken pipe or extra flooding in any way. Then I saw what they saw:
“Look Mama! The Pipe is going POTTY!”
Oh yeah. I’m one proud, proud Mama.
Moving right on to the next topic (because there’s really nothing more to say about that topic!)… It’s raining too hard to go check on the little baby birds we found… but I did check on them the other day. I peeked in the tree and was so surprised to see the mother looking at me. Then I realized, “That’s not the mother!” That’s one of the babies… growing feathers!”
Isn’t it interesting how the bird in front seems to be slightly more developed than the bird in back? This picture was taken a couple of days ago. By the time the rain lets up enough to let me take another picture, I expect there will be more exciting changes!
