early+late=benson's birthday






All Benson wants for his 3rd year celebration are chickens. We are probably bad parents to entertain his latest whim so shamelessly but secretly I wanted chickens too, and Ben was hankering for a building project so in all honesty it's not a complete indulgence of 3 year old wishes. Anyway we have been (well Ben has, really) building the hen house for a few weeks and we have it finished now except for shingles on the roof. It has been a fun project and Benson is super excited to put chickens in their new house (but in the meantime is very happy to occupy it for them). Unfortunately we have to wait a few weeks for the type of chickens we want to be born and shipped to the local feed store. But be excited for part deux of Benson's birthday in a few weeks: fuzzy baby chicks.

I can't tell you how fun that looks! My oldest brothers family has them and LOVES them. It sounds like a great experience for the boys too. You'll have to let me know what you think maybe that's something for our future (although I was thinking we need to put up a fence first.) Happy almost birthday Benson!

Wow! You guys are awesome! I am so proud of Ben for being able to build that thing! And those are some super cute chickens you already have there. :) HAPPY BIRTHDAY BENSON!!!!!

I can't believe you are getting chickens! I must say you are probably the best parents I know, teaching your kids based on what they want to know! I can't wait to see the pictures!
