July 25, 2014 – We had a hootenanny this afternoon in celebration of the bantam’s new coop. Tim suggested that we make it a theme party and that we dress as super heroes. We had a blast! Tablecloths, towels, sheets and the like transformed into capes and leggings and head masks. Sawyer and Violet cut letters out of felt and we each glued one on our chests. The letters stood for our super hero name. Tim chose the letter C for CAPTAIN COCKADOODLEDOO! Charlotte chose the letter P for QUEEN OF PEARLS. I picked S for SUPER SCIENTIST and Wilma slapped a bright red L on her chest for, (according to the old bat herself), LEAVE ME ALONE, THIS IS STUPID.
Even with Wilma’s cantankerous feelings toward hens in tights, we managed to have a great day of music, corn on the cob, watermelon, dancing and… just before it was time to go in for the night, watching the fireflies put on an amazing light show.
Life is great this summer.
