Earthbound Sand Chickens
This video is an excellent summary of recent August afternoons. Beautiful weather and a saucy toddler with boundless energy romping outside. Exhibit A: Flashdance routine mid-sandbox. Jennifer Beals with pigtails.
And you know that's how chickens fly.
Today, we were admiring the chickens (check out the new outdoor coop component - fashioned by the Dogtor and OPA) and Fray took off toward her sandbox. She toppled a foot in front of it, then looked at her hand, then at me. Her fingers were black.
Yes, friends, dog poop. Probably reason #2,450 why four dogs and a toddler don't mix.
Mama went running - FAST - and got the SAVE. No hand to mouth. Relief. Yeah, I'm bragging.
