Shepherding…

We still have about 17 ewes to lamb, give or take a few depending on how many of the yearling ewes caught last fall.  This lambing season has just zoomed on by and we’re about done!

Spring Days…

I am loving the longer, warmer days we’ve been having lately.  Not too hot or too cool.  Perfect spring weather.

The flowering trees, tulips, grape hyacinth and violas are in full bloom too…

Zayne…

Last Sunday, my littlest little boy stayed home from church with me to tend to the sheep.  We had a very wonderful morning…

Yes, we now have three bottle babies and they are waiting very impatiently while I make their bottles up and Zayne decides which jello flavor he wants.

Engaged…

Our oldest son has been engaged to a sweet, beautiful young lady for a couple of months.  They plan on getting married about a year from now.  They asked if I would take their engagement pictures!  ME?  Yikes, but we had so much fun doing them!
