Yesterday was a wonderful day at the farm! We welcomed 2 new baby chicks into the world. I had never experienced an egg hatching before so it was a miraculous event! I seriously got teary eyed, which is pathetic. I can only imagine what will happen when I actually have my own kids. Anyway, I wanted to introduce y'all to one of the new additions to the farm. I decided to name him George. No real reasoning behind it. Just thought it fit him. Here's a picture of George a few hours after hatching: Here's a picture of George being held by Evan, a hilarious 2 year old who joined us that day. The look on his face says it all. Pure joy.
We await the hatching of 10 more eggs over the next few days. I'm so excited to watch them grow in the coming months. It truly is a blessing to be able to witness the miracle of life like this. While sorting through the recycling, I did find two more farm "pets" which I will not post due to someone's fear of them.
I kindly grabbed both of them and relocated them to a nearby patch of grass where they thanked me by trying to bite me.
Here's a quick video of Evan showing me George:
If you'd like a good laugh, check out this video of Evan with one of the other newer pets, the 8 month old chocolate lab Jacque. It is HILARIOUS!
I'm working on uploading more pictures and videos. They will be found at the following address:
