We have had a funky spring here in Kansas. Shorts weather in March, snow well into April, and freezing temperatures still at night..more flip flopping than a kid off a diving board in the middle of July. Or more flip flopping than a crappie on that 1st spring fishing trip in March.
(well I hope that's a crappie, I think he said that!)
And if you need to know, we are almost done with school we are in our last two weeks of school right now. It's a big hard push but we can do it! I would love to just quit now, and be done at 30 weeks!
This weekend Knox has Lego Mindstorms, and we have a geology field trip for shark's teeth fossils. We also have a Boy Scout campout as well as a piano recital. Tomorrow is Genna's first violin lesson. It's an exciting week for everyone. Next week the hubs and I celebrate our 10th anniversary. We are actually going to go out of town together...but you would never guess where...lol.
First turkey who came was a tom, and it scared our tom. Then today we had 2 females inside our pen eating our food.
The females didn't stick around, they were gone after an hour or so. The male stayed for 2 days. I knew one night we had locked our birds up a little early around 5 pm and he decided to head on out since there was no one around to play with.
We also had a visitor, sort of sad, an injured raccoon. His back legs weren't looking too good, I guess the neighbor's dogs got ahold of the poor thing. He hasn't bothered our chickens, but it was struggling so badly, so our neighbor put it down. Sure was a cute but I know they are chicken killers, so I guess it's good nothing more than that happened.
Anyway, now there is a big possum we can't seem to capture, he is hanging out in the pen, and gets off over the fence before we can nab him. He knows we are watching..
