How can a week possibly have gone by so quickly? I realize its been seven days since I last posted. I do try to post more often. But I never feel like I have much to say. I'll work on that.

Been packing. Not fun. I don't remember moving being this stressful last time. Probably because I only had two little ones, they took naps, and nobody was expected to be schooled!

Oh, and we are the proud owners of five chicks. I caught our bird dog looking over them today - or should I say Looking them over - and she was licking her chops. I'm not sure these birds have a real long life ahead of them. It is a lesson on the food chain, though... We will try to untrain the bird dog.

Doug has been looking up plans for a chicken coop. This is the one we have in mind.

We'll be heading up to the new house this weekend to continue the deconstruction/reconstruction. I probably should share pictures, but its so ugly right now. We're almost ready to put in the new cupboards, but in the meantime we ripped out the main bathroom (brilliant, I know). No kitchen, and down one bathroom. WILL WE EVER BE ABLE TO MOVE IN?!?!?!?

Its supposed to be in the high 90s this weekend so:
1. The sudden warming may cause the river to overflow the bank and flood our yard. (I know, live next to a river and still have to complain!)
2. We're setting up the slip and slide.
3. I have no summer clothes.

Until next week....

That chicken coop is so cute...I want to see a picture of the little chicks. Sorry that things are so hectic and stressful for you right now- it will all be behind you before you know it. It doesn't seem like a year ago that I was doing the moving thing. Let us know how we can help.

I'm so totally jealous of the chicken coop. Totally jealous. I can't wait to see the new and improved house. We're having a yard sale in June if you want to join us..
