July already?

I can't believe it's July already! I've been off line for about a week, we traveled up to TN to take my mom home. She had come down with a uhaul load of furniture, and the kids and I took her back. While we were there, J got us some new baby chicks. Black and Copper Marans:

We have 9, although I think there are just 8 in this picture. About 3 weeks old. I'll be glad to have our egg business back up and running. Will have a roo this time too, and eventually raise meat birds.

Kids are doing great. B was 13lb 11oz and 23.75in tall at her 2 month app on the 23rd. R is slowly learning his letters and numbers. His behavior has settled down a bit this last week. He got to spend a lot of time with grandma, grandpa, and his aunts. He still doesn't listen, but I think that's par for the course. I've devised a new naptime strategy for B. I'm putting her down for her naps in the guest bedroom with a fan on for white noise, so that R. won't wake her up, and I can be in my room while she sleeps. We'll see how well it works out.

We're getting a lot more settled now, I spent a long time this morning unpacking things, putting up pictures, and moving furniture, and it's really starting to feel more like home. Maybe I'll be able to bust out the yarn here soon and start knitting again.
