A first-time mommy; she is doing a wonderful job.
There are three black and two white babies.
One of the gifts farm life gives my family is experiences like this. My kids can identify which tom cat is the baby-daddy, and keep track of how often he is around. They have a feeling for the natural cycle of life and get to watch it play out before their eyes as the seasons spin past. There are things I wish we could experience that living in a neighborhood would offer, but there are wonderful and special things about living in the country as well.
