This is the only thing I can think of that is making Bekah act the way she is at night. The past two nights she woken up sobbing hysterically. Last night I found her sitting on her knees in her crib pointing out her window sobbing uncontrobably. Tonight, I found her in the same position but she wasn't making a peep and was just staring off into space...she had stopped crying by the time I got to her room. I' took her to the living room both times to rock and she won't go anywhere near her room again until she is completely asleep...which of course at that point she doesn't know she's going back. A couple of the other kids went through this as well although I don't remember it starting this early and I don't remember how long it lasted. Hope it doesn't last too long as it makes for some late nights...especially when she wakes up at 1am...tonight she started early.
That's the way the evening ended. The day began with us pulling into the church parking lot for 9am service and seeing the doors propped open. That's never a good sign...means the air conditioning is broken and boy does it get hot in there. We survived although Bekah was especially grumpy.
The chicken coop building process has begun. Or in this case, the remodeling process as the plan is to convert part of our existing shed into the chicken coop. Andy and the kids were able to get the shed cleaned out today and the one side is now empty. The plan is to put a wire wall inside the shed as a divider and to cut a hole in the side wall to allow the chickens access to an outside run. We've got some old wire shelving that we'll put on the floor to keep the chickens up out of their mess and some old broom handles to use as perches. We're trying to be as economical as we can with this. Not sure what we are going to use as nesting boxes but we'll probably have 2-4 of those depending on how many chickens we end up with.
