Loose Teeth

Levi lost his first tooth today. We were beginning to wonder if he was just going to keep his baby teeth lol. He turned 8 in August and still no teeth were even loose yet. I believe he was getting anxious considering his little sister has already lost 3 teeth now and has another one loose. He would check constantly for loose teeth and when he finally discovered one recently he wouldn't leave it alone until it was ready. Eating an apple today finally worked it loose enough to pull. He was tickled to death and wanted me to call everyone and their neighbors to tell them the news. He is now asleep with his tooth under his pillow awaiting the tooth fairy. 

*no sadly he does not still believe in the tooth fairy but we can still pretend

Fuzzy Foes

I don't know what it is about our yard, but it seems to attract an abundance of creatures! Apparently this night it was the pizza but I assure you we don't generally have pizza on our front porch. Seriously, there is no need to go to the zoo when all you have to do is look outside and there's a new animal. On a regular basis we have skunks, raccoons, and opossums. Then on just random sightings there have been coyotes, snakes, a bobcat, a bear (not actually spotted in our yard, but the neighbors driveway... close enough). At least they're not bothering the chickens! (So far anyway)

Fresh Eggs

FINALLY... we are starting to get eggs! So far, we are only getting one a day. I guess that means only one of our hens are currently laying, hopefully the other two will start soon!
