Well, I have to start with an apology for not blogging in forever. I know many people were curious about the chickens, the laying of eggs and how the garden turned out this summer. Unfortunately I never got the chance to blog about any of it because I was extremely sick with "morning sickness" starting on Memorial Day. From that day on it was a struggle to even get from my bed to the couch due to feeling so horrible all day long. That also meant a lot didn't get done this summer in the backyard. I was planning on doing a good portion of the gardening because I have the summers off and was really looking forward to seeing how green my thumb was. Well, as previously mentioned that did not happen. My only job consisted of trying to remind Bill every few days to feed/water the chickens. I am happy to report that the girls give us about a dozen eggs every other day. So we are well stocked with brown eggs and are usually looking for people to sell or give them away too. So if you want eggs and are in the area, please let us know! My plan is to get a few pictures up in the near future of the girls and also the digging of the new dry well. The dry well broke over the winter and therefore turned into this summer's main project.

So I think our blog from now on will not only have to be about the adventures in our backyard but also the adventures in life with a new baby on the way.
