Care to guess why Aidan has decided to perch on top of the mantle and play with Legos and K'nex?
I'd say it's a safe place where his sister won't disturb him.
Care to guess what part of your body disappears when you stand up?
Your lap (a little riddle from a book Aidan read to me).
Care to guess how many eggs our chickens laid in the month of August?
I think I'll be gone from this space this week (has something to do with projectile vomiting and other non-blog worthy events), so I've decided to host a little contest in my absence. Guess how many eggs our eight chickens laid in August, and the closest answer will receive a little box of goodies from our foothill home. I can tell you that one of these will be in the box.
(I can't stop making them.)
The final tally is not yet in. Last I checked, Bess was sitting in the nesting box doing her good deed for the day. We have six nesting boxes, yet they all choose to use the same one. Tomorrow's math assignment for my two kids will be counting all the tally marks on our egg calender.
Can't wait to see your guesses! I'll be back at the end of the week to announce the winner.
P.S. Some of you might have heard that our foothill town was devastated by a wildfire that broke out Sunday afternoon and scorched hundreds of acres and burned 30-60 homes (depending on the news source) and multiple businesses. We are all OK, but please keep in your minds and hearts those that have lost everything. What a humbling example of how everything can change in the blink of an eye.
