We are ready…
…for the chickens.
Our sweet friend Justin made a long drive down south to come spend a very long day with us building us a chicken coop. He and Christopher worked nearly 12 hours with a great deal of ‘help’ from our oldest three children.
The kids are totally ready too. All day long we hear chickens. Even little Kyler is getting it down – baak, baaahhk, baak! Very fun. The games have totally shifted as well, now everything is chicken-centric. Today it was who gets to be in the coop laying the eggs and then one of the chickens was a runaway chicken the chicken farmer had to chase down. You really need to see them inside the coop pretending to be chickens, it really is too much. Very fun indeed and the little chicks are not even here yet. I can’t imagine what will transpire once the much desired chicks actually arrive. The week of April 13th will be one where we are anxiously awaiting the call from the Post Office – “Is this Christopher and Karissa Strovas? Yes? You need to come down to the post office right away and collect this box of chickens.” That will be a glorious day. The video camera is all charged up ready to capture that moment for sure. We don’t know what day they will arrive, but it is supposed be anytime during the week of the 13th. We will keep you posted for sure!
