This past weekend, the entire family was able to gather together at Double S Farms.
As I mentioned before, my brother-in-law was in town for final interviews for a new job. Although he was busy with meetings, we were all able to meet for Saturday breakfast on the farm.
I baked my Irish soda bread for the occasion and the kids couldn’t wait to eat eggs and sausage.
It was also time to check up on the new baby chicks and their new chicken coop….
New baby chicks
Their new coop has three levels and the girls really seem to like it.
One of the kids discovered an egg, from one of the older chickens…
The kids spent much of their time running around and wrestling in the shade of the apple trees…
My mother showed me the progress of her fall vegetable garden…
We have already enjoyed salad made from her romaine lettuce…
We visited with my twin nephews…
Dean, being held by my brother, is recovering well from his surgery, where he had a lobe of his lung removed.
My visiting sister, took her turn holding Danny.
Soda pop tried to find someone to throw her ball for her.
The ‘senior’ chickens, Effie, Ramona and Lucy, did their best to stay out of everyone’s way.
Indoors, my nephew, Oliver, showed off his ‘zombie’ makeup and did his best to scare us, but then he reassured us that it was really him behind the make-up.
Lastly, my daughter, Gracie, spent time with her Uncle Scott…
I love them time that we all spend together and we received great news yesterday – my brother-in-law was hired as the new children’s pastor of a local church. So they will be moving here next month.
I will be so blessed to not only have my mother, brother and youngest sister living nearby, but also my other younger sister 🙂
Baby countdown is down to 7 days…..
