I believe Sarah is becoming reconciled to the fact that someday we are going to eat the chickens. She named one of them Goodies. She even said that it might be OK the eat Goodies or even Watermelon. She cried the first time I told her that we were going to eat Watermelon. So, the named chickens are: Watermelon, Sunflower and Goodies. I still can't tell them apart, but Sarah seems to know who is who.
Sunshine (one of the cats) caught a mouse last night.
"Ew! Ew! Sunshine caught a mouse!" squealed Hannah. Sure enough, a very pleased kitty cat was batting around a small, expired mouse.
"Is she going to eat it?" Hannah asked.
"Probably." I reply. And she did. Mostly. There was half a mouse on the porch this morning. It seemed to be the right size.
