We started building the chicken coop the Friday before this past one. It had been raining for a couple of days so we had to start building it in the shed because it was all muddy outside. Then we worked on it Saturday and Sunday. And in the week we have been doing lots of school. And then Thursday we went skating and after that we went to this herb farm that people from our church own, so we volunteer there. Then Thomas had home school baseball practice because he is not little enough for little league anymore. Then Friday we worked on the coop some more and I had baseball practice. The sad thing is now that we moved to Beaverdam I can not play for Mechanicsville instead I am going to play for Ashland. They are a much smaller group there are only three teams instead of like fifteen or more. And Mechanicsville also had the nicest fields. But I am kind of excited to make new friends because back at Mechanicsville I used to know almost everybody because this year will be my eighth year playing baseball, so here at Ashland I am like the new kid. Saturday I also had practice and we worked on the coop some more now it is almost done. Monday we went to a place called Eden Farm to buy berry bushes and also to look at ducklings. Yes even though we have chickens already we want to get ducks. So we looked at ducks but we did not get any because they were straight run (which means they didn’t know if they were male or female). But we got a lot of berry bushes. We got Blueberry, Blackberry, Raspberry, Cherry, (yes there is such a thing as a cherry bush) and a grape vine. I think we are just going to order ducks from a hatchery. So today is Tuesday the twenty fourth of March and today is Anna’s birthday, and I think we are going to get the coop done today.
