August 3rd, 2014

After a week of carefree mornings and evenings, today I hauled myself out of bed to get back to feeding the animals. Welcome home. But it was also kind of nice to see how much my poultry babies have grown in such a short time. The guinea keets were enormous and

 the baby chicks have entered their teenage phase. To mark the occasion, I gave the chicks a new water dish since their old one cracked. Shea fell in love with the bunnies while we were gone, so I handed over my rabbit duties to her since I phase out in a week anyway.

Grandma and Grandpa arrived home after dinner and the house is now comfortably crowded again. The picture to the left is an Assateague wild pony that wandered into our campsite on the first evening we were there. Much like bears, the ponies will eat your food if you’re not careful. (I had to duct tape our peanut butter jar lid back together after a curious pony crunched it to bits.) Tomorrow Megan and I start our last week here. I can’t believe how quickly this summer has gone; I wish I could capture it in a bottle to breath during the brutal Indiana winters.
