Did you ever wonder what the first egg a chicken ever lays looks like?
I know, I know.
I just did an Around Here post but there is just too much cute right now.
OK, deep breath. Preschool is finally reopening today and Squawk is joining the child care crew.
The thought of him in care makes my stomach turn but with everything I have been doing lately, it's kind of crazy that he isn't going yet. So today is going to be about all the feels. ALL OF THEM.
How do you go with first time preschool drop-offs? I was surprisingly ok with Scout but I feel like Squawk may be a different story. I'll keep you posted.
Anyway, enjoy the pictures.
1. A little portrait session on the front deck, the addition of a slice of lime each made for awesome facial expressions.
2. Crafting for Fat Mum Sim because. Totes famous.
3. A weekend of food and wine at the Hunter for a bestie. Boys always seem to have bucks weekends, personally I think women should do it more – we are just so much better at it. Have you ever seen 30 women descend on a country house after a day of tasting? There was a high tea whipped up in about twenty minutes flat. The music was pumping, the jacuzzi fired up and cupcakes were flowing. It was pretty impressive.
4. We bought two new chickens for our flock just after Christmas and I wanted to share the evolution of the eggs we are getting. There is a tiny soft jelly egg that is a first lay, usually you don't really see these because they get sat on and eaten. Then there's one that's from about a week into laying. It's small and perfect. And the whoppa is from a two-year old bird. Pretty cool hey.
5. Making craft in their underwear – everyday.
6. Jimmy Halfpenny hooked us up with a custom book full of Scout's art. For me, memory keeping is pretty high on the priority list but getting said memories out of the computer or wardrobe never happens. This is why when Kate approached me about making us one I said YES! Please go and check out her site, it is such a great concept!
7. She is telling me what all of the things on the page with complete clarity. I wonder if she actually remembers drawing them or if she is just telling me what she sees now?
