Rachel Time

I think I am finally ready to start posting pictures of when we had Rachel with us this summer. I will break these pictures up into different postings so you aren't bombarded with too many pictures.

When Mike's family left to head back home, we headed to Acworth to pick up Rachel. We were able to spend 2 days together with Uncle Mike before she and I headed to Las Vegas to visit Uncle Paul, Aunt Kathy and Veronica (their friend from Argentina).

Rachel, Betsy and I walked to the neighborhood next to us. Rachel had fun on the playground and we all got some exercise

After Rachel completed her homework (yes it was summer but she had homework to do for entering 2nd grade) she played some games on my laptop

Betsy loves playing ball and Rachel did a great job throwing the ball for Betsy to chase

Here Betsy is patiently waiting for her ball to be thrown. I am so surprised how well she did with Rachel

And of course the day is not complete without chicken chores

Rachel got to feed the hens some cracked corn. Normally I would throw the corn out and they would eat it up but Mike has spoiled them by teaching them to eat out of his hand. Rachel filled up the food inside the chicken house and she even collected the eggsThis is the chick area and Rachel was just looking in to make sure they were all being good

Uncle Mike had a great time teaching Rachel all about chickens

Sounds like you have had a busy summer. I love the comic paper wrap. And who would have thought of using duct tape!? That was clever!
