So, we all go through it, I guess -- those preteen years when our body parts are growing at various disproportionate paces, leaving us a jumble of arms, legs, and feet. Or, maybe we don't all go through it, but, as I think the pic below makes clear, I definitely did.
Before we continue, I have to give my momma props for this picture. She had the wherewithal to snap a pic of this moment. And, based on my smile, she must not have even been too upset with me. I'm pretty sure if I found one of my kids in this position, the last thing on my mind would've been to capture the moment. I'm pretty sure I would've gone the "what-in-the-world-do-you-think-you're-doing? lying-on-the-kitchen-counter? with-your-nasty-shoes-on-the-counter-top? . . ." Anyway. Moving on.
Chickens go through this phase, too. And, at nearly three weeks old, our chicks are well into the awkward phase. They are all necks and legs and half-grown-in feathers. By the way they strut around the place, though, it doesn't seem to be affecting their self-esteem any.
We've got their outdoor set-up ready for them and will move them out of the barn in the next couple of days. Be looking for that update. They are so much fun as they discover the grass!
