I have a little brood of white silkie bantam chickens. If you have never heard of them, here is a link for more info;http://http//www.mypetchicken.com/catalog/Day-Old-Baby-Chicks/Assorted-Silkie-Bantams-p681.aspx Well, my smallest one had a little crooked beak. It looked really funny! She would follow me around like a little pup. She apparently wasn't getting much food because of her beak problem though. This morning, I found my little crook peacefully lying on the ground. She had died, and I had no idea until early this Sunday morning. This blog entry is a kind of tribute to her. I know she was just a chicken, but once you give one of these guys a name, they really do become pets
This Saturday our familywent on a hike to Catawba Falls.
It was beautiful! The hike was very nice. Long, but fun! When we got to the falls, we basically "rock climbed" to the top. At one point we had to use a rope to make it up the face, but we made it! It is really neat to see the beauty of God's creation from way up there!
On labor day weekend the we went camping with our cousins the Cookes and had just a wonderful time . . .poison ivy, scary stories around the camp fire, tents, old mountain songs . . .yep, we did it all! In the morning we got up (very sore, but still having a great time) and went hiking up at Mount Mitchel. We always enjoy spending time with the cousins :)
