But, my big chickens have betrayed me. They've been getting out of their pen and they dug up the asparagus that I planted last weekend. I spent a couple of fun-filled afternoons tacking a row of chicken wire to the original (obvious) non-chicken proof fence we already had up and I think they're contained now. I saw a hawk flying around the coop a couple days ago, looking like a Chevy trying to use the drive-thru at McDonalds. I yelled at it and shook my fist. I hope that'll discourage it from thinking it can make my hens into a 5 pack McNugget combo meal.
Busy week on the sports front this week. Between WE and Angel #4, there are 4 track meets this week. Fortunately, we're only expected to go to 2 of them, tonight for #4 and Thursday for WE. I hope the weather is decent, it's not a whole lot of fun sitting on a cold metal bench, freezing your butt off for 3 hours so you can watch your kid run a 57 second race then jump into a sand pit 3 times. WE runs the 4X4 relay, which is always the very last race run during a meet, which means we always have to stay til the bitter end. But, on the bright side, at least it's a non-contact sport and no one is trying to take my kid out with a discus or anything. WE's worst track injuries have occurred while goofing off in the locker room after practice.
