The important term there being: was.
|This photo cracks me up, not so much for me beheading my first rooster, |
but for Ruby's hand over her heart, and Erik's mouth wide open.
Just for the experience we let him run around with his head cut off and watched his last few attempts at crowing. There was some morbid laughing. It was kinda gross, kinda educational.
|I did not have control of the camera so there were some rather disgusting photos,|
especially of the rooster's feet in various 'situations'
|I canned applesauce last night, blackberry jam this morning, then kept the pot hot |
and butchered a rooster this afternoon, not bad.
|The children saved as many neck feathers as possible.|
Ian decided to dress up his Dollar Tree cowboy hat.
Erik was disappointed that we had already done science, because this,"Totally, could have counted!"
Ian claimed the rooster feet. He wilted when I told him they were not coming in the house.
I said, "You know those aren't coming in the house, Right!?"
He replied, "I do now."
He had hoped to put them in his treasure chest. I don't know, maybe they would smell good?
