    Our little farm is in full Spring mode! The kids can finally go outside without heavy jackets and snow boots! Yay! The sandbox is getting a LOT of use these days!

    Oh, and let's not forget that every one of our hens lines up by the fence and puck-pucks, to let us know they want OUT! Naturally, they want to experience the Spring grass too!
    Little do they know that our kids are just waiting for these birds to get out, so they can chase them all over the backyard. Try explaining to a 2-year old, or even a 3-year old for that matter, that the birds just want to be left alone.

    "Mommy, come look, hurry up!", I hear my daughter calling. I look out the window and see this:

    Ha-ha! I did not have time to pick up the "good" camera, so the phone had to do! She was so proud of herself that she caught a chicken! :) Ahh, kids will be kids!

    Enjoy the Spring everyone!

    Bye bye Henry...*sniff*

    I am sorry to report that our Rooster (I named him Henry) had to go.
    The neighbors started complaining about his early morning "singing". Personally, I would rather send the geese away, that make SOOO MUCH noise on the lake behind the house.

    Henry will be missed :( I love that Rooster! He is so gorgeous! I was actually thinking of entering him in a 4H Fair this Summer!

    I think some people would much rather hear the noise of traffic, than a nice soothing crow of a Rooster.

    I hope Henry doesn't get turned into "chicken" soup! :(((((

    General Mills - a Healthy choice!

    Recently, I had the pleasure of getting to try some General Mills cereal, courtesy of General Mills through MyBlogSpark!

    My kids love cereal and so does my husband. I always make sure everyone in my family, including myself gets a healthy breakfast every day!
    A healthy start to your day with breakfast is so very important! If you feed your brain, it'll serve you well all day :)

    Did you know that ready-to-eat cereal eaters consume less fat, less cholesterol and more fiber than non-cereal eaters? Cereals also deliver important vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients, making cereal a top source of key nutrients in children’s diets.

    Other cereal benefits:
    • Ready-to-eat cereals, including presweetened cereals, account for only 5% of sugar in children’s diets.

    • Ready-to-eat cereal is the No. 1 source of whole grains in a child’s diet today.

    • More frequent cereal eaters tend to have healthier body weights and lower Body Mass Index measures.
    Studies also demonstrate the benefits of eating breakfast. A 1998 study showed that children who eat breakfast tend to perform better at school. Compared to children who skip breakfast, children who eat breakfast score higher on tests, are less likely to miss class or be tardy, have fewer reported discipline problems, and make fewer trips to the office.

    For more information about kids and cereals, please visit Cereal Health and Wellness.

    Right now if you visit here you will find a $1 off coupon for one of four General Mills cereals.

    The Mysterious White Egg!

    Up until now, we have only been getting brown eggs from our hens, but the other day, THIS appeared in my husband's egg basket:

    We don't really know what to make of it. At first we thought that the Silkie hen might have laid her first egg, but this white egg seems almost the same size as the others. Silkie eggs are usually quite small.

    Nevertheless, it still tasted really really good for breakfast! hehe
    I can't wait to get more surprise white eggs!
