I spent the day on pins and needles. I had not anticipated how nervous I would be when I set up an incubator and hatching eggs for my daughter’s kindergarden class. (See my post…Kindergarden Incubator). My daughter was SO PUMPED about the chicks that were coming today….as were her friends. All day, I was wondering what was going to happen if none of the eggs hatched? After all, it was a pretty rudimentary design, and maintained by the teacher, who had absolutely no experience…..I kept envisioning my little, trusting, five year old having her confidence in the world order shattered when none of the eggs hatched.
Anyway, long story short….well, actually kinda a short story short….by the time she left school, there was 1 chick wandering around, and hopefully more to come….the kids were incredibly excited…..as was I….big smiles all around.

P.S. – they named her DUCKY…..sigh
