  1. The boys haircuts are so cute! Am I remembering correctly that Maxwell is going to do a day or two of pre-school? He seems ready. As for TV shows I watch over and over….not really..I will occasionally watch a movie a couple of times but that’s pretty much it.

    How are the chickens? Any egg production yet?
