6 + 6 a dozen chicks is ...

Last year, Hunter learned a math chant for adding doubles up to 20.  Lately we've gone around saying "6 + 6 a dozen chicks is 12!"  That is because last week Precious hatched out a dozen adorable chicks!

Yesterday the boys and I took Precious and the gang outside for some time in the sun.  The boys watched the chicks closely while I cleaned out the large dog crate that they are temporarily living in.  (Tabby loves everything about going to school this year but admitted yesterday that she missed being around for things like this!)

Precious marched the chicks around the little fenced area we put them in and instructed them as she demonstrated different chicken things.  It really is amazing to watch!

Great news about my aunt Pam that was hospitalized for double pneumonia.  The trach and feeding tube were removed from her and she is now threatening that if the doctors don't let her out of the hospital now then she will walk home!  :)  All her doctors said her progress has been remarkable.  Prayers really work - thank you so much for praying for her!

Finally, a big THANK YOU to those of you that donated to Tabby's fundraising project for Stop Hunter Now.  (See my post here.)  She has sent thank you cards to all the donors except for "Anonymous."  We found that "anonymous" is "Anna T" but I'm still not totally sure who you are.  So if you are reading this Anna T. - thank you so much for your generosity!  :) 

I believe Tabby is the top fundraiser in her class so far.  If you would like to contribute, here is that info. again:

If you would like to help sponsor Tabby's participation in Stop Hunger Now, you can make a tax deductible payment online on her school giving page at:   Every dollar helps!
