Mish mosh of stuff

Hey all!!

I havent blogged in a while, so this will be a big ole mish mosh of catch up stuff!! The last time I blogged was after our day trip for Spring Break. Since then we have gotten back into the school and work routines. The weather is still pretty lousy. Weve had some sunny days but as for warmth, not so much!

I remember driving home after school one day last week and checking on the horses as we drove past. Well, we didnt see our horses where they should have been!! I stopped to see what was going on. Turns out our boys and the mares had broken the chain on the gate and swapped fields!! I guess they wanted to see if the grass really is greener on the other side!! They got the mares into the barn and then I got our boys back to their side of the fence. Rotten horses!! :)

I have worked a couple days since we have been back. One day that I worked we got to go to the high school to celebrate our high school boys making it to the State Championship in baskbetball. The final score was 79-81, but as they said during the celebration, we didnt lose, we just ran out of time!!! Congrats to our boys!! :)

We lost our Belgian Shepherd, Titan, last week. That is a very hard thing to go through, and after going through it two years in a row now, I hope to not have to go through it again for many many years!! We miss you every day Titan!! You too Taylor, and you too Choco!!! The house is so quiet now and we can feel deeply the loss of your presence.
We celebrated Easter this past weekend. We stayed home, so it was just our family. We talked about the true meaning of Easter with the kids, gave them gifts, and then had Easter dinner. It was a very nice relaxing day!!

One of the gifts we got the kids was.......................baby chicks. Dont tell my mother!!! The kids have always asked to have them. I had one when I was little but it died, and then my dog dug it up after I buried it. Now very good memories with baby chicks!! lol Needless to say, hubby brought it up while we were at the farm store. He convinced me that it was a good learning experience for the kids and we could have free eggs!! The kids were, indeed, so excited!! They are very cute, and very smart, and very inquisitive, and a joy to watch. For now. But what about when they get big?? I am now having my doubts about this decision!! I grew up with a mom who is deathly afraid of chickens, and quite honestly, they sorta freak me out!! Im not so sure this was a good idea!!! Regardless, here are some pics of the girls. They are Barred Rocks. If you have played myFarm on Facebook, that name should ring a bell!! lol

Their names are Spike, Poco, Bueno, Jr., and Pooh. Go ahead and tell me how nuts we are now!!!
Thats all I can think of to write about!! Take care!!
