Our Growing Brood


We are proud parents of six growing chicks.  We candled the eggs yesterday to check their growth.  We are on day 7 and the dark spot in the center of the egg is the growing chick.  More photos will be added as we progress through the stages.

Day 9




Day 11








Day 22 

We are the proud parents of at least two chicks!  Watch the time lapse video of the chicks emerging from the eggs.

Field Trip Fun

The first grade classrooms visited the National Aviary near downtown Pittsburgh.  We learned a lot about penguins and various other birds.  Thank you to the PTO for funding our trip and the chaperones that attended.
