Some Summertime :D

It's been a long while since we've made any updates on our family...mostly because we spent all of July in Virginia where there is no internet! We spent some great time with Grama Jo, PJ and his family and Uncle Johnny in the Blue Ridge Mountains...

Then the week we got back home Grama Sonia, Uncle Jim & Taylor came to visit!!
I was concerned about the garden since we were gone for a whole month, but it actually did quite well in our absence....
watermelon (we actually had a bigger one but the chickens got it!)

Ben and his carrots!
Our barred rock chicks surprised us with major growth while we were gone...they are bigger than our red stars and americanas now!!  They have started to try and crow...we have at least 4 roosters.  They are gentle with the kids and love eating kitchen scraps! Ellison has  a good time with momma at dusk walking around watching them. 

Our rabbits had another litter already...3 months to the day after the first litter!!  This time 2 bunnies, both girls.  The momma rabbit handled her wee ones much better this time and they are both doing great!  Ellison LOVES to play with them!

don't you just LOVE those pudgy fingers?!?!
And lastly, our little chick is growing!  We can tell now since it's grown so much that the hen that hatched her is not her real mother.  They have different color skin on thier legs, and the chick has tufts on her face like the auracanas.  But the mother hen is so protective!  It's hard to get a decent picture because she won't let us near her baby!
Isn't she big?
We are ready to expand our farm but can't do much more on this property we're renting.  We have found a few pieces of land and are waiting for God's timing to make a move.  If we come to mind, please pray for us!  We need wisdom! Hope you all have had a fun-filled summer with friends and family like we did!!!
