Growing Up Cornish Chicks Week 7!

I can't believe we have made it this far! When I found out their average life was only 8 weeks I won't lie I was really sad. Here I held these adorable little creatures in my hand and in two months they may be gone. well have a successful 7 weeks of life I am glad to say that they are crazy and as good as ever! They do go through an amazing amount of water so I think I am going to have to figure out something more. I am limiting their feedings to twice a day they get a 10 ounce cup of food spread on the ground. We also have been giving them lawn clippings and weeds that pop up. The kids also like to give them their apple cores.lol Our next goal is getting eggs :O) from what I read this could take up to another 8 weeks! But we are looking forward to that journey.

I will catch up as I can, may even try to add extra to the days once I feel better. For today it is 50 burpees and 50 kick down crunches. If you don't know how to do these make sure to scroll down for directions! You will also see why with the flu these aren't doable.lol HOW TO DO A BURPEE!

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol
