The chickens have stepped up their laying now that the days are starting to get longer. We are getting 6-7 a day now. Aren't the colors great?! Before long we will be up to a dozen or more a day. The new goat kid is doing well and we are STILL waiting on Sugar to kid. I am sure she must be cooking up more than one, she's getting so big she can't climb or jump anymore.
I also spent some of yesterday baking homemade bread. I checked out The Panera Bread Cookbook from the library, and if any of you have had bread at Panera you know how good it is. I made the Honey Whole Wheat, it was so good I don't have a picture, they ate it too fast! Next I am going to make a Sourdough Starter.
On the last note, the last craft I made was some bean bags for the school our church runs. They were very simple and came out cute. I cut out squares of material, sewed them wrong sides together, leaving a little opening to turn them. Filled them with rice, (I know, technically not "bean bags") and top stitched around each one, which I think really finishes them. They used them for a gym program called "Made to Move" that I signed my kids up for. It runs for 6 weeks, they have a healthy snack and then are taught games and relays and such. The teacher they hired is great with the kids and has a well thought out program for them, and the kids are loving it.
