Chicken Update

I was able to open the door to retrieve 2 eggs and feed the chickens without getting pecked! Success!

The Chickens Have Come Home to Roost


I've written before that Erik and I are not animal people and we had not planned on having any animals here, but one thing has led to another and we ended up getting Rascal, who after a slow start has turned out to be a great mouser, and Mocha, who is loyal, sweet and most importantly, low-maintenance.

Again, one thing has led to another and some friends have given us their 3 chickens.  I know this is the part when you laugh out loud and think, "She must be joking," but I assure you that I am not joking.  We are now the proud owners of 3 hens.

I know that it I could have gotten a better picture of the chickens if I had opened the door to the house instead of taking the picture through the chicken wire.

But this one looked like she wanted to peck my arm off.

Western Kenya

This weekend we took a trip to western Kenya to visit some good friends who help run a children's home.  We had a great time with our friends and with their Maasai community.  We were warmly welcomed and Erik preached at church on Sunday morning.  It was a wonderful weekend!
