Homebirths and hay bales = happiness

While the whole family watched "big mama" gave birth.
The kids occupied
themselves jumping off the tall bales of hay.
Laughter in the barn.
All eyes on the miracle about
to be delivered.
The Lords sense of humor
rang out across the land
when we realized he gave us
a black nanny.
(I have been praying for a black nanny, but not
a goat..:) The Lord answered my prayer
and I smiled at the cute black kid
looking at us.
Their names?
Tiff and Abby
The drop was a big one and I wanted to
tell them to stop but I just couldn't.
Country life is all about big smiles and no shoes...
and learning to jump.

and learning to Love

Minutes after birth we give
them a good cleaning up and blow dry.

the joy of
dropping into the hay
and realizing you have all day
to do it again and again and again.

and again...
