    "Shadow an Daisy Doodle were on guard duty, makin' sure we were clipping the grass the right way, I don't know why I couldn't do that job..."

    "Gardening is hard work but we had a lot of progress to show...Look how well we trimmed the green onions!!!"

    "Cricket and Miss. Henny Penny were putting in posts here...something about a stronger fence...I don't know what that is for..."
    [​IMG]

    "Most of the girls were working on the coop, making the roost bigger and putting in another door, here we are getting a drink really quick..."

    "Finally we get a break to play, mamma says we did a good job with the yard work and on the coop...Boy was that hard work..."

    "Maybe us girls will have a talk tonight about when we are gonna lay eggs.....I really don't want to do any more yard work..."

    Very creative! I love how you turned it into one, big flowing story!
    And I laughed out loud after reading the "look how well we trimmed green onions" bit!
