We've been waiting for Spring, and it officially arrived last weekend.
When the chicks arrive, we know it's Spring!
We raised laying hens, and meat hens on our little farm when the girls were growing up.
My youngest daughter, Melissa, and her family have decided to follow the tradition of "gathering eggs".
Their chicks arrived Easter week.
The three girls picked out the ones they wanted to raise.
Olivia thinks the little birds are the funniest things ever!
I love to hear her giggle, and squeal with glee when the chicks are running around, and hopping all over the place!
Olivia is a source of sweet joy to me.
Charlotte is constantly squishing the poor little things close to her. She loves them, and doesn't understand how fragile they are.
Being a rough, little tomboy doesn't help matters.
If one of the chicks ends up looking like a pancake, I won't be surprised.
You can see it in her eyes....."these things are so cute, I could just squeeze them to death"!
She is a pip!!! I could just squeeze the dickens out of her!!!!
The weather is still going from warm to cold here in northern-lower Michigan.
I'm waiting for the nights to stay above freezing. There are so many projects I'd like to get started on outside. In the meantime, I'm painting the sun room.
It's time to get ready for another day at the pharmacy. I'm blessed to work with some great people. They make me laugh....I think they are all a little "touched", but that's just between me and you.
Have a great day everyone!
