We had such a sweet evening tonight. After dinner, we all headed out to the field to check on the animals and to do a little gardening. This mama ewe was showing definite signs of being in labor. Phil and I knew it would be a matter of time. We went inside and put the kids to bed, and sure enough, while we were inside she gave birth to twins.
Phil called up the stairs for our little shepherd boy who was already tucked into bed. We whispered into his ear, and then out the door he ran! Can I just say that this has been one of the greatest parenting moments ever? Wow! Tonight as I was out in the garden looking around at my sweet family, our animals and the beautiful view, I kept thinking to myself, "I'm so blessed to live this life."
Just about a half an hour old
And they found their milk right away!
