Summertime is good

We have cow and a steer, Kate and Biff, respectively. I am really enjoying them, and am probably going to miss Biff when he goes in October. He seems the smarter of the pair. Kate is due in September, so we will get our first taste of calving this Fall and then will start milking shortly thereafter.

The boys and I have had a slow fun day of weeding, watering, baking and cleaning. We even managed to watch a movie. Now we are settling in for some rest time before evening chores. Ethan knocked his head earlier, and I gave him an icepop to put on the knot. I told him he needed to hold it there for a few minutes and then eat it. This seemed to make it All Better.
