They had little baby chicks as well as big chickens. The baby chicks were SOOOO cute! (Rafie reports that he saw an equally cute gopher sticking out of the ground.) I painted a little gourd and made a cornhusk doll. The cornhusk doll has a blond string braid, grey kernels of Indian corn sewn on for eyes, and an Indian corn necklace. I also felted some wool around a stone, so I can cut the stone out and make a tiny pouch. Then Clem, Ev, Greta, (Who we met up with there) and I carved pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns.
When it got really hot, we all went down to the river and waded. The river in ankle-deep to knee-deep in most places, but we also found a spot deep enough to swim in-- deep enough that I couldn't stand at one point!
For dinner, I bought some delicious corn on the cob and a baked potato, before I got apple galette with ice cream on top for desert. We drove home happy, full and tired.
