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 London Boston Rachel : 2014 or 2015

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! 

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!  

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 

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(read the rest)

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. Bye
