Summer has arrived, and it seems that moms taxi is on the go non-stop. #2 got accepted to camp after all. Not what he applied for, but rather, military band at Blackdown. Totally unexpected. His C.O. worked it out for him. Awesome. So I have been shopping to fill his kit list before he leaves next week. New glasses are on the way for #2 and #4. I still don't see why they make the darn things so flimsy. I took the boys to a movie yesterday, Canada Day celebrations at the park on Sunday, and a friend to pick up on Tuesday to go horseback riding. I'm looking forward to a week at home to catch up with the weeds!
Their mother is in trouble. She has been eating chickens. My little hens, to be precise. While I couldn't blame her at first- feeding ten is really wearing on her- I adjusted the doggy stew, adding more protein, and the puppies started eating it as well as nursing- she hasn't slowed down on the chicks at all. I hope she hasn't made it a habbit. For now she is tied up when she is outside, until the chicks get too big to escape their pen.
Our heat wave (rotflmao) has broken, with a good dose of rain last night. I know everyone is complaining about the heat lately. We had a week of about 28-32°C. It was really hot for us, with humidity! It's almost never humid here. Down to 20°C today, but the forecast claims it'll be climbing back up all week. Better than dropping! Rage on, Father Sun. Lots of work to do in the north!
