our week — august 12

It’s been one crazy day around here.  School started for us today (well, homeschool — the older kids all went back to school last week and I’m happy to report everyone is happy, more or less).  I have to admit, I’m a little worn out mentally.  Trying to school two is definitely more challenging than one.  I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it, and all in all, I think it was a good first day.  That being said, I’m going for short and sweet today and will let some pictures tell most of the story.

Here’s our corn — it’s still growing strong, and we’re still really proud.

ImageNext to the corn, our sweet potatoes are continuing to grow like crazy.

ImageAbout a month ago, some friends came over and Adam and Eve were accidentally let out of their cages at the same time.  Woopsie.  We thought we had caught them before any canoodling had taken place, but apparently not.  This is what greeted me this morning when I went to check on her. 

ImageYup, that’s a nest.  We should see some little sausages (that’s what Thomas call the babies) in the next couple of days.

The boys were pleased as punch that we had irrigation during the day this past week.  Even though it grosses me out, I like to let the boys run around in it when they can.  I tell myself, it will help them have a good, strong immune system.  But I have to admit, finding them swimming in it, pushed me to my limits of nastiness.  ImageI had to draw the line (after I took a picture of course).  And that’s our week in a nutshell.

  1. When our rabbits Phoebe and Leo accidentally got out at the same time, it only took 15 to 20 seconds and we tried to stop them and she still ended up with a litter of 9 being born 32 days later. It doesn’t take long at all. The expression quick as a bunny is incredibly accurate.
