Here are the pictures that should have gone with the previous few posts:
Samuel took it upon himself to shovel out some grass area for our stir-crazy chickens last week. They loved it and we loved it when he made a winding path that they were forced to follow--chickens don't like walking on snow.
Inspired by a character in "Little Women," which I am reading to the kids, Samuel thought he'd try out "Ivanhoe." I think the combination of itty-bitty print and archaic language forced him to abandon the book soon after this picture was taken.
