VBS and Chicken Update

VBS was the week of July 12th at Lake City and our family traveled to Ancient Egypt every day together to learn the story of Joseph, sing new songs and have lots of fun spending coins at the Egyptian marketplace buying and making crafts.

Kivi at the Embalmer's making a sarcophagus - I didn't say they were normal crafts. We had to tell the workers in the market place about our one true God and invite them to the celebration at the end of each day.

Eben weaving a basket.

Jasper building a sugar cube pyramid. The market place also included a hieroglyphics shop, jewelers, beauty shop, toy store, brick making, linen shop and a chicken store.

Opal and Berg hung out in the nursery while we journeyed.

We also got 4 more chickens during this week - White Jersey Giants. We had to replace Doody and Suzy who turned out to be roosters. Roosters are not allowed in Lakewood, plus they get mean. So we sold them at Yard Bird for $5 each and bought 4 pullets for $4 each. Sadly, the chicken Eben is holding, Cutie, and Moony, Japser's replacement chicken (Peep was eaten by the eagle we think.) have already died - from shock. So the chickens we now have are Puff (Mama's), Patty (Dada's), Tiny (Eben's), Speckles (Kivi's), Moony II (Jasper's [the one Kivi is holding]) and Nugget (Berg's).

I LOVE the picture of Opal and Berg. She looks so cute and he is smiling already!
Speaking of chickens - you have inspired Buggy to get chickens. Dad already built a chicken coop and they have been ordered. She can't wait (but I can).
I love you all so much,
