Never in my life did I expect that we would have chickens. I never thought I would be collecting eggs in the spring and chasing chickens out of my garage. Never in my life did I think I would wake up to the sound of a rooster crowing in the morning.
I still can't believe that I live in the country. I grew up in town. We had neighbors I cut across their lawns. We played "Kick-the-Can-Alley" and "Tag". Of course, I was the weird kid who always started newspapers and circuses, parades and lemondade stands.
I'm sure my girls long for town and playing "Kick-the-Can". I'm sure they'd like to hang with their friends instead of collecting eggs. To tell you the truth, I'm glad that they live out in the country. I'm glad they can be by themselves once in awhile and skip down the driveway if they want. And, I never have to worry about lemonade stands.
