On the Farm this Week...


 It was a busy calving week for my son, Tim.
He has researched breed lines and genetics so closely, and it is always exciting to see his new crop of babies.




He checks on the mama cows through the night...and day....to make sure there aren't any problems with birthing.
My other kids are his right hand men. They are always there to help out and love the work just as much as Tim.
{Mom and Dad are right there, too ;)}
Sometimes they are lucky enough to watch a new one come from a distance.
The wet, sappy, new baby with a warm mama's tongue lick, lick, licking him vigorously to ensure he get's up and at it.



Their little red coats glistening in the sun.


It's a lovely sight to behold.


They are all healthy little calves and scampering across the pasture together.
I never tire of watching them :).

Wishing you a great Friday!

Oh, the sweetness! I never tire of watching babies either ;) What a blessing for your kids to grow up sharing in the joys and responsiblities of this work! I'm continually impressed by my own kids' (young as they still are) desire to work. (Well, it's still play to them right now) But I think it's so important that kids are encouraged to see hard work as rewarding and not something to avoid. Tim is such an outstanding model for that - as I'm sure your whole family is. Congrats on the beautuful calves!
