May is always a madcap month! As it is for most parents, it's is filled with end-of-year concerts, recitals, parties, walking tours, and awards nights. May found me desperately trying to keep up with the usual domestic goddess chores, paired with gardening and substitute teaching - this gal is ready for a break!
Anyway, in the middle of all madness, can be found one of the sweetest sounds of spring... "peep, peep!"
Look at that little face-it's as if she has eyeliner on!
We started calling her Cleopatra, but now I'm leaning toward Talulah...who knows what we'll decide on. One gal looks as though she's wearing a mask, and so Little Man has named her Bandito!
In time, these 6 new chicks, Araucanas and Brahmas, will be joining our little flock. I just can't wait to see the blue-green eggs!
Hope all is well...more to share next time. Stories of a goat the vet says is a miracle, and a baby kitten who needed a home.
