We are a creative homeschooling family of 3. I have homeschooled my 2 boys from the start and we do lots of unit studies and get out into our beautiful part of the world as often as we can.
As the boys are getting older and we are getting busier I find I am posting less about our journey but will continue to update occasionally.

Mr6's new pet

Mr6 has been wanting a new pet since his darling Miss Meggy passed.

We have discussed to possibility of adopting a pony, a giraffe, an elephant!

Luckily for us he has decided a baby chicken would be perfect.Her ( we are hoping it's a her) name is Nutmeg!

and our little one is in love with his new little pet.

Chicks are fun. Mind the snakes!

Thanks Sandy,

we are being very careful outside with her and really keeping the grass mowed short, its a challenge in the heat and with all the rain.

The chicky looks like a girl but it's so hard to tell. We have a new one we think is a (another) rooster (sigh) he had two mummies but one was taken the other night. Now he and mummy number two are sleeping in Lil's library! a lot of our hens let us pick them up and they are soooo cute.
Nice pet choice!
