Calving season is upon us again. And my husband is on night duty – 7 day a week. I am so thankful we have a large house, so he can get some sleep during the day! I mean, we have 5 kids, and they are not quiet!
Meanwhile, I am trying my best to stay on top of schooling 3 kids, caring for a baby, and keep a 3 year out of trouble! Whew! I’ll just tell ya right here; I am not doing it. I am not ‘staying on top’! I am sliding into a hole. I can’t keep up with everything. But that’s ok. I am doing my best, and what work doesn’t get done today will still be there tomorrow. 😉 I am very much sticking to the basics. School is obviously a top priority, and meals and laundry. Cleaning gets done in fits and starts. My kids help a ton, and ya know – when you have a 2 month old baby, it’s ok to just do the basics, right?!
The sunrises gleaming golden and peach on the snow makes for beautiful mornings! I never get tired of the view from my window…
I walked down to the calving barn this week, to see the new babies. They were mostly sleeping, but I got a few shots. This lil guy had a rough start and was staying in the barn to get warm and healthy. This cutie was just soaking up the sunshine! I need to go down more… those babies are so cute. How’s your calving season going? Do you sleep alone during calving, too?
