Raising Chickens for Homeschool

Another missionary family was raising chickens and we thought we would also do that as part of our homeschooling experience. They were going to give us a hen and a Thai pastor was going to give us a couple of chicks. We were happily surprised when we received the hen AND a mother hen with her five 3-day old chickens. We had been building a hen house and preparing the place for months, so the children were ecstatic to finally get the chickens. The chicks have since grown quite big and are shedding their fuzzy feathers. They are starting to spar with each other. Caitlin really enjoys mothering the chickens. She wants to catch and hold the chicks whenever she has an opportunity. The kids also enjoy looking for eggs (we’ve got 4 so far!).

Caitlin's Third Birthday Party

Here are some photos from Caitlin's third birthday party.  We had some other missionary families over to join in.  Lots of little girls for Caitlin to play with, and it was good to get the kids together (not to mention for the moms and dads to hang out)

A Christmas Thank You Message

We are really thankful for all the people who love our kids and think of them on birthdays and Christmas.  Here's a short video of Joshua and Caitlin thanking their Uncle James for the gifts he sent for Christmas this year.  We're not sure if they were more impressed with the gifts or the packaging!

Caitlin's Second Birthday Party

Here are some photos from Caitlin's second birthday party.  She has really begun to get interested in dolls, so "baby dolls" (as she called them) featured prominently among the gifts.  But she is also a big fan of fish (for some inexplicable reason), and thus Mommy got her a fish cake, which she continues to mention regularly, long after the event has passed.  Must have been a good cake!
