16. New eggs from new hens who just turned 21 weeks.
17. Enthusiasm from a 5-year old Alex who says, "They are moms now." And diligently helped me clean nests and get them into the new coop for the "new moms".
18. Crisp, cold sun shining BRIGHTLY all day long.
19. an early start to the school day
20. boys playing outside in the crisp air and then hauling wood to burn
21. frozen mud!
