Finally, After Much Waiting...

Tomorrow, the kids and I are going to go pick up chicks. The fluffy, yellow kind. Just to be clear on that :)

It's been much excitement and anticipation here at the Patterson's. The girls, especially Maddie, have been waiting very (im)patiently for our new baby birds. I'm sure that the couple hours between breakfast and pick up time will be filled with questions and giggles and squirming as we try to get some schoolwork done.

Today we watched YouTube videos of chicks hatching, and talked about what would happen when our 10 babies finally arrived at our house. Maddie is worried about Tigger, but we're going to figure out a way to keep them safe.

Stay posted for some pics of the chicks!

Fun!! My kids were very excited about our chicks too. We ended up with 24 little yellow-brown fluff balls this morning. I settled them in their pen and the kids have forgotten about them already! haha

They're being kept in the garage for now, and Maddie has spent every minute of her spare time sitting by their cage! She's not allowed to touch them without my being there (heat lamp and all that), so she's been running up the stairs constantly to ask, "Mom? Mom? Is it time yet? Is it holding time, yet?"
