The kids had a great summer and enjoyed it immensely. They continue to be with Mrs. P two days a week. They worked on some fun History Modules and even made an adobe.
Summer days at home were fun and full to overflowing.
Our summer project was hatching duck eggs and then raising the ducklings. We were successful and actually hatched seven ducklings. If you have not tried to hatch eggs, I whole heartily recommend giving it a try. Here is a look at our ducklings:
The very first peek at the new duckling Herridan.
Herridan and Sullivan
Six Cayuga Eggs were incubating.
Day 26 brought a little black bill poking through.
Before long . . . six ducklings
All the ducklings cooled off in the bathtub on those hot and steamy July days.
They were very good at swimming, fluffing and pooping!
Herridan and Sullivan grew quickly!
The boys love to swim in the lake with the ducks.
They are so grown up now at two months old.
The ducklings are grown now and have taken their place on the lake. Two newbies joined them yesterday. We call "Peepers" and regardless where they are, the answer with a loud QUACK and come back home because they know it is treat time.
What a great education through learning about animals.
What else did we do this summer?

It was a great summer . . .
