After four kids, ten moves and nearly two decades, we are still blissfully in love (most of the time) and I found myself back in the state I was born and raised in. It has definitely been a journey. In fact, on our 18th anniversary we pulled the last of our stuff up over the pass and into Montana, leaving our surprise love, Idaho, behind. But Montana is a great place. The last best place according to some. And we fully intend to explore as much of it as we can! Join us on our continued adventure through life, love and other stuff that comes with it.

Over the next few weeks I'm super pleased to have Grace join me as a guest blogger.  She is signed up for 4-H and is very excited to get some ducks for her poultry project.  We're also using it as a home school project.  I'll let her tell you all about it!



This morning we got four duck eggs from our neighbor and got our incubatur set up. I don't know how many ducks I am going to have though, because never count your chickens (or ducks) before they hatch!

When we got them they were really dirty and we weren't supposed to wash them but we washed them anyway because they were very very very dirty.  I used a pencil to put a X on one side and an O on the other side of each egg. I am supposed to turn them at least 4 times a day and the X and O help me keep track of turning them.

Super dirty eggs

Cleaner eggs.  Marked and with a chicken egg for comparison.
