Late Summer Babies

They have hatched! My baby birds have hatched and flew the coop!  They were so cute and I enjoyed having them to help they get a start in life.  My fern did suffer from housing them but oh the joy they brought us.

These pictures are hard to see but three of the four hatched.
Doug is doing better every day.  We went back to Springfield for his follow-up visit and got a wonderful report.  The vertebrates are aligned and the ligaments are strong enough to hold the neck in place.  All the praise goes to our God.  We thank everyone for all their thoughts, concerns, texts, and prayers.  It has given us strength for each day.

Hot, Hot, Hot

Today was extremely hot again.  Our grass is quickly dying, which means the mowing has slowed down extremely.  I am trying my best to keep the chickens cool and fed.  I have changed them over to a layer feed and they do not like it.  I told them they will have to eat it or do without.  They are begrudgingly eating it.

The tomatoes are still coming on but have slowed down considerably also.  I am still enjoying their sweetness.  A tomato that actually taste like a tomato is beyond delicious.  Summer will soon given into fall and cooler temps will adorn us.  At this moment, I would take a few cooler temps.

Doug is healing well and recuperating nicely.  He needs to build up his stamina but that will come in time.  I thank God that he has been so blessed.

School is coming along nicely and I am already one week into it.  It is hard to believe.
