We found some homeschool friends to do this with, and set off on the first walk. The kids are here with the pigs that are set in a path of footprints, representing first the Cherokee, then the drovers taking their animals to markets in TN and SC. The metal edging is representing the street cars that used to go through downtown when it was first a bustling city.
The giant iron in front of the Flat Iron Building. This building inspired others around the country, has marble floors and person-operated elevators.
Back at home, Blossom is still just tickled that she's old enough to be allowed to hold the chickens. I straw-baled off a section on the side of the house for them, so they can't wander too far. We do have to put them back in their box in the afternoon when the big chickens are let out, or else the small ones get picked on.
