A year ago, I would have never imagined we would spend afternoons after school outside with our chickens. I cannot impress enough how ridiculous the idea would have sounded to me just 12 short months ago.
Yet here we are. And after one sunny, glorious afternoon, I must say that I cannot imagine a better way to wrap up the day.
I’ve always been an animal lover. Not to the extend that I would bring home random animals – that is my cousin – but in the sense that I’ve always had a dog or two and would probably have added some cats in if I weren’t allergic.
I would pick up stray dogs on the street and try to find their owners – without fear that they would maul me. I once found a soaking wet dog during a thunderstorm with tornado sirens going off that I promptly picked up and put in my mother’s brand new car with leather seats. My mother wasn’t thrilled, but we found that dog’s owner when the storm subsided.
Outside with farm kids and chickens
Our free-range plans flew the coop
How the chickens acted
How the kids acted
Dreamy farmhouse life
