I forgot it was picture day at Homeschool Enrichment and I’m on a budget so I didn’t buy any packages. I took these of the kids, quickly, as we were headed into school. The bottom picture is Rachel from a few years ago while we were waiting for the bus.

Julie's first white chicken egg.

When we moved into our house (it’s a rental) it was made very clear to me by my daughter that she wanted to raise chickens for fresh eggs!  Our awesome landlord, Paula, was kind enough to give us permission to keep a small flock in our backyard as it is legal in our city of Wheat Ridge, Colorado.  You are apparently allowed hens (no roosters) and our city even permits one goat.

My 9 pound, 3oz screaming bag of bones has turned into a beautiful, tall and thoughtful young lady.  I’m old!!!  She’s beautiful and I love her to death.  My brother had us over to his house while we were in Boston to celebrate her day.  My friend’s children made her a couple of cakes…. they turned out great!  Continue reading “Julie Turns 11!” »

Jamie and I decided it would be fun to take the kids to the science Museum.  Out of a potential 10, we managed to sneak into the Museum with only 5 kiddos.  It was cool to see exhibits we hadn’t seen before, I really enjoy learning more about the human body and I was totally blown away with the pig lungs!   Continue reading “Denver Science Museum Trip” »

In My opinion cats rule.

1 Cats are independent. Cats don’t need  much food because there killing days are Friday and Wednesday.

2 They are silent. Cats are silent on anything even when meowing it isn’t very loud.

3 They are playful Mittens my cat is shy but very playful even when killing mice she does it in a playful way. When they are dead she plays ping pong with there body.

4 Cats are beautiful cats can have lion cuts and I want my mom to shave my cat to look like this cat. Bye and remember that cats rule!!!!!!!! Bye bye bye lioncut

This past weekend I brought the 4 kids plus their father who just drove out here from Boston to the Breakfast with Santa put on by Rachel’s Special needs school (Fletcher Miller in Lakewood, Colorado). It was a great time, huge value for the money and a nice, inclusive environment for kids with special needs and their families.

Here are some pictures I took of my kiddos and a few of people that love Rachel (Hi Kristin and Becca).

The  chickens rule here are some reasons why. 1 they are related to the T rex and who doesn’t like a t rex. The The T Rex ruled the earth in its days. The chicken is like it. Short arms long legs and small head one difference is the chicken is a bird not a reptile.

2 They teach you better than school they teach you to be patient if you are not by making you wait for eggs. Also responsibility is something you learn with chickens because if you take care for them you take there eggs feed them and water them.

3 It is fun to get eggs I race to get there eggs when they lay . And they taste better than store bought .

4 They are easy to take care of . They  eat anything they can get there beak on. They will eat anything even poison and dead mice.Our chicken never did but they tried.

5 They are fun.My old chickens used grapes for soccer and if a dead mouse came along they run with it in there beaks.My family has two chickens names big bertha and ginger are the biggest and they ambush each other they don’t hurt each other but it is hilarious.santa

Bye!!!

 

Today I am blogging  about cats because I LOVE cats. The best cat ever is Mittens she can survive being on her own in the forest without food from others at age 1 and a half. When we got her back she was more independent but still loved us as much as she did. She is a blackish brownish fluffy beauty and she looks like a lion. She speaks when she meows hisses and growls  she says hey but at is all.  Her full name is Mittens Owl (because she has owl eyes)Pumpkin(because her name before was pumpkin) Vontuglen.

Chickens-Rooster-WireToday i’m writing about a news article that I read to my mom. About a  man who lost his land,lost his hens and his roosters were killed. The police seized his land and animals without notice. People think that it could be rooster fighting being the reason for his lost because he has more than 700 roosters and more than 600 hens. People think that it is very ridiculous that the government is on both sides. Im not sure why and the only person who knows is Trin Than the man who lost his animals and land. They are denying that 9 cops and 5 animal control officers took this from him. All of his food was healthy and his animals too and if they all captive chickens to stay where they were.

Most people forget the meaning of Thanksgiving most see Thanksgiving as food . Others see it as a useless holiday . I see thanksgiving as a time to go to a loved ones remember the less fortunate,feel grateful,help them and be yourselfs. This Thanksgiving my family went to Jamies. We had 3 guests named Mister Quarters.Brooke  and Bethany. Me Brooke and Bethany  were mostly outside on the swingset or on the trampoline playing dead man or woman man for when boston was around. Run from the balls which we made up it was when we had 1 though 3 balls in the trampoline and where the ball hit was weaker until someone got hit 10 times from the balls. And just jumping around. On the swing set we just played. And the food was great!wild-turkey_765_600x450

I take care of the animals that me and my Mom own. Mom buys what they need and she bought all of them for me. So far she bought 5 Silkie Chicks, 3 Bunnies and  7 chickens She was only supposed to buy 5 but unfortunately 2 died . I am still sad. And I take care of them. I let the chickens roam in the morning for about 30 minutes. Every Sunday me and my mom clean the animals homes one by one. One of our bunnies, a Jersey Woolly,  is pregnant, her name is Maggie. When we clean one of the bunnies cage we let them roam in our backyard. I love the animals.

This is Mittens the indoor cat.

This week a storm  is going on and it killed 5 people . Some died of freezing some died of a heart attack .In some places it had 6 feet of snow.

Storms can freeze anything that has liquids  if it is cold enough. And on the roads it can make cars swerve into other cars of the road and  make you lost.

A way to stay safe is to stock your cupboards with food stay of the roads check for storms . And if you have to go out in your car wear a full snowsuit bring lots of food water and blankets.
