Whenever my “office” view overlooks babies, it is a good day.
The piglets are weaned. They are eating their feed and have figured out the automatic waterer. At this age, they are still darned cute.
Pumpkin Pie is nearing her one-year birthday. My, how she has grown! She is still a heifer, until she has a calf, then will be considered a cow. We won’t breed her until next summer, hoping to synchronize her calving time close to Abigail’s. Abigail is due May 2015 and we will breed her during the summer, too.
I’ve decided I want to shoot for spring 2015 baby goats … not early-February-mid-blizzard like last winter, when Gabby was born. Goat gestation is approximately 5 months. The plan is to bring a friend’s buck over to “court” the girls in the near future. Gabby is too young for that nonsense, so I will have to keep her separated (hopefully). We could breed her at this age, but I would prefer to wait.
Then, once my work outside is done, I come into the house to … more babies!
Sometimes, I have to stop and watch them play ….. or sleep, or eat, or groom. Adorableness.
Then, along comes evening and my oldest son arrives home from student-teaching. Last night, I helped him condense the last 4 years of his life into an official-looking resume! Is it awful of me to brag now and say that he has maintained a 4.0 GPA out of a possible 4.0? Well, resumes are basically where you do have to toot your own horn ….
I hope you enjoy your office view(s) today!
We have the best office views…you and I!
I am so grateful for it, too, as I know you are! 🙂
And I recognize that college! We visit my son every few weeks and have to drive by the college to get to his house. I just love that building and the campus.
EIU is a great college! Not too big, not too small.
What a wonderful post! Yes, toot your horn all you like. It’s great to hear a proud Mama.
Thank you on behalf of my son! My sons’ dad died when they were in 8th and 5th grades, respectively. He would be SO proud!!
Oh, those little piglets are cute, but those kitties are adorable!!! I wouldn’t get anything done but look at them (and take pictures!).
Your son is so very handsome, and you have every right to be proud. Sad that your sons lost their dad at such vulnerable ages. (I was 8 months old when my dad died.)
You’ve obviously done a great job of raising them!
Oh, Dianna … 8 months old! I’m glad my boys got the amount of time they had with their dad. Thank you for your kind comments.
PS – this kittens are a big distraction …. 😉
My office view includes morning sunshine on autumn leaves, Buddy dog, and a mostly clean house. 🙂 Loved your updates! 🙂
Thanks and congrats on a mostly clean house!!
You are really in the baby business but the kitty business is the bestest.
They are so darn cute!
Your office view is much better than mine. Congrats to your son on his GPA!
Graduation in December!
