The Mundane

We're well into the school year now, verified by the first parent-teacher conferences yesterday.

We're gardening, the picture below is the sweet potato plant in my garden, it's 2 plants really, and I think we will have a ton (maybe literally) of sweet potatoes this year, yeah!
Our chickens have been at it again, no we didn't get rid of them, but I did stop feeding them. Our yard appears to be big enough for them to forage. And here are some of their new babies, aren't they cute! They make Savanah smile as she lets them climb all over her as she does her homework, it's pretty funny to watch!

And Ry has been asking to do the dishes for a long time. Eli is assigned after dinner dishes , but complains horribly about it (thus a new a assignment has not been given) but Ry being the amazing little brother that he is has been asking to do them for Eli forever. So, last night I gave Ry the go ahead to do them, and he just hopped up there, feet in the sink and everything, and just started cleaning. It was great to watch! Although, it took two beach towels to dry up the floor when he was done! Four is such a great age, they are never too young to help!
