We are incubating some duck eggs for our neighbors. This was the first duck to hatch in this batch and he was alone for the first night. If you have been around ducks...then you know that when they are little and alone they can make a lot of noise/peeps trying to call you back to them. Needless to say we had to do something quick. So we found a stuffed eagle and put him in with the duck. It worked...we did not hear another peep the rest of the night. When the other ducks were hatched, they would all huddle around the eagle and go to sleep.

What do you get when you cut an apple in half..(the wrong way).. A STAR!! They gave a fun little class about the seasons of the apple trees, and how they grow.
Time for a hay ride! We had fun...and got to see a beautiful mountain view.
It is a must to taste before you have to know what you are getting is good!
As you can see, we all approved of the apples, especially Nona. When she finished the APPLES she would hand me the stem and say...finished!

Fall is in the air

Sequoyah had a school field trip to one of our all time favorite apple orchards...we had so much fun! The girls were set with their cowgirl boots, and Koya's favorite pants (the only ones she will wear) PINK SPARKLES.

Our duck that was rehabilitating went under our neighbors fence for the night. When I woke up, I found the duck and the buck (goat) right next to each other. They were pals...until the duck did not come home one night. We still cannot find him and it has been a week. I don't think that goats eat ducks....but something else around here does. NO it was not Dragon either!

Dragon VS. Pete's Dragon

This is what happens when our Dragon met Pete's Dragon. I had ordered this DVD for Tennille for her birthday. Needless to say it wasn't ready when they said it would be so it was back ordered. They then delivered it on a day that we weren't home or expecting a package. For some reason the UPS delivery guy thought that a DVD would not be able to fit between two doors with at least 6 inches between them. So he decided to leave the package on the porch...this is all just a theory because I didn't find the package (or what was left of it) until the next morning. Dragon had captured the DVD and hidden it until night came. When I woke up the next morning I saw some paper on the grass. I knew it couldn't be from the garbage so I investigated. Let's just say I was surprised! So now I am trying to get UPS to reimburse for the DVD. Hopefully they will...because common sense would tell ME not to leave a package in the open with a dog there. What do you think?


Adonyah is helping rehabilitate this duck. Looks like he is really struggling doesn't he?
