The Sweetest Things

Collecting eggs

Collecting eggs with your children?  No one warned me how seriously addictive it is to watch your children gather eggs and giggle over the colors.  There simply aren’t words.

More later.

  • Valarie Lea - I am so happy for you!!!!!!ReplyCancel

  • Tia Julie - Oh and the questions that come with how and why they are different colors and sizes? And the curiosity of wanting to see the chickens actually lay the eggs. Both you and Joshua have embarked on a magical and wonderous adventure called parenting………..ReplyCancel

  • amyb - i can’t wait for our chickens to start laying! i have a feeling we will be getting rid of a few roosters pretty soon…they aren’t show quality, and why keep them if the kids can’t show them…that and why would i want to keep 6 roosters with 10 hens? your kids are probably in heaven at your place!ReplyCancel

  • Barb - Oh Lacy, all is the sweet beginnings of wonderful memories to come!!
    How precious are those tiny hands holding those fragile globes?
    Just as you & Joshua are doing becoming parents…
    I’m so looking foward to seeing more and more of these moments!
    With love and blessings~

  • Marlene - I remember taking a young child with me to the farm and when he saw peas from a garden he was totally amazed and said “I thought peas came from cans, boy wait until I get home and tell my Mom, will she be surprised.” Out of the mouth of babes your life will be filled with laughter and amazement……lol ..Love AlwaysReplyCancel
