Elliot Coleman Lydon (aka The Frog Blog)

Welcome to the Frog Blog! Elliot was born at home December 11, 2005 at 11:09 am. He weighed 6 lbs 15 oz at 20.25 inches. We'll try to keep this updated for you...since our network is spread out, this seems like the best way to keep everyone in the loop.

Summertime, and the living is easy...

Well, it's July and summer is in full swing here in Wisconsin. We are finally getting settled into our new house (and finally have internet again!), and Elliot is really thriving on all the space and freedom he has out here. We got a small flock of chickens from a neighbor and now have fresh eggs every day. I just have a scaled back version of a garden since we were moving during planting time, but I still enjoy spending time out there, and it's great being able to eat what's growing. We recently put up our first harvest of hay, and we also just harvested the garlic we planted last fall. It's curing in an old corn crib we have here... it should make good eating all winter long!

Here are a few snapshots of a day in Elliot's life...

Our chickens come running when they see Elliot. They like to follow him where ever he may go.

Our day is never complete without a visit to the raspberry patch!

Here's Elliot checking on what's growing in the garden.

The pond is perfect for throwing rocks into, but the pool's better for swimming (not so slimy!).


Thanks for helping, Dad!
