It's Friday!

Hey everyone!  Hope you've had a great week!  We're gearing up for a busy, busy weekend!!
Here are five highlights from my week:
Our compost bin!  I'm so excited about this.  Jason put the finishing touches on it over the weekend and it's perfect!  We are getting so much use out of it.   It feels good knowing that all of that waste we were dumping in the trash will now be used to feed our garden. 

We headed back to the zoo this week and had a great time!  When we went there a few weeks ago, we didn't get to see all the animals.  This time we saw them all and we stopped to feed the giraffes.  This is the first time Ashlyn was willing to feed them - she was so excited!
We had a storm roll through here last weekend and, after it was over, I looked out in my backyard and was met by this view:
Nature is amazing.
Our garden is in and planted!  Yay!!!  We have so.much.planted.  We're so excited!  We planted a lot of things that we've never planted before.  And, we have four crops we're starting from seed - also a first for us.  Let the weeding and waiting begin!!

Jason added a couple more touches to the chicken coop this week.  He made rooster bars and feeders out of PVC pipe.  Stay tuned to the blog for a post on these, as well as an awesome trick we're using to keep track of how much feed is in the PVC pipes!
Hope you had a great week too!
