2010 Springside Skating Club Carnival

J3 in the staging area

Dinah and J3 were enrolled in skating once again this year. I took a few pictures, but not that many. The conditions in the rink are such that pictures just don’t turn out well. Be sure to check out the videos, too!

Here is the video of Dinah’s routine:

Here is the video of J3’s routine:

Here is the video of a little bit of Leeyana’s routine:

Raising Chickens

Into the incubator they go to bake at about 100 degrees for 21 days

This year we decided that we were going to raise our own laying hens. It will be a great experience and a bit of a science project for Dinah and J3. We collected eggs on the week of Feb. 22, and set them in the incubator on Feb. 27th. So we are expecting them to hatch out on or around March 20th. I will be adding more blog posts as things develop. Enjoy these pictures of us collecting eggs, building our incubator, and candling the eggs at day #3. Also, check out the video after the pictures!

Here is a video we just made of candling an egg this evening. This is on Day 10 of the 21 day incubation. It’s hard to see in the beginning because of the poor video quality, but some veins are visible on the left side of the egg. Later in the video you can see the embryo more clearly and it is also moving around a lot.

Recent Birthdays and Parties

From my birthday party

Here are some pictures that I’ve collected over the past 2 months or so. Among them are pics from the birthdays of Me, Jack, Abe, Dinah, and Autumn. Some other randoms are thrown in as well.
