Dear Macy and Maggie,
We know it's been a while since we have written,
but we have been very busy growing big and strong.
We have grown so strong that we are finally allowed to roam the farm as we please.
Our first outing was yesterday.
The door was suddenly opened to the outside world
and we emerged without hesitation.
We've been so curious about everything outside our gate.
There are sights and smells and tastes to investigate,
and we spent the day doing just that.
We kept our house in sight as we wandered here and there.
We always stayed together thinking that there is safety in numbers.
We spent a great deal of time crowing...
just to let the world know we are here.
We spent about 5 hours eating bugs and grass
while we investigated our world.
It's a pretty great world,
and we thank you for bringing us there.
We are going to have many adventures in this place.
We know that life is not without danger,
for there are wild animals around.
But we will proceed with caution and the farmer will look out for us,
so don't worry.
We think about you every day...
knowing how much you love us.
Your friends forever,
Fish, Egg, Jelly and Petunia
It's berry pickin' season on the farm.
Wild raspberries are abundant...
with vines at the edge of all the woods...
and boy do we have lots of woods!
Blueberries are ripening, with more and more each day.
Because summer is so busy, I have decided to freeze the berries for now...
and will make jams during the quiet, slower winter months.
Remember the eggs in the nest on top of the light in the duck hut?
We have fluffy baby birdies now!
PS: Grammie Camp continues this week.
What fun we are going to have!
We'll have much to share as the week goes on.
