We had a great visit with this year's first visitors. W has been a close friend of H's and mine for many years, since they worked together at the beach one summer during college. W brought her two girls, 18 months, E & F, for a visit on this crisp but sunny first Monday of January. We walked to the barn and then had lunch together.
I love the picture above. Elliott has taken F's hand as they all run toward the barn.
W's girls are beautiful and very well behaved. They are calm and play well. W is a great mom, very consistent and engaged and loving. We are so glad they came to see us.
We have lots and lots of babies at the barn this winter. Sheep and goats. They are all such cute babies. Brownie had one of the first babies and my three have really taken to it. They've gotten to hold it quite a bit and they have named him Villie.
Below is the shelter that the five of us built in December when cold weather was coming. It was fun doing a project together as a family.
Come back soon, W, E, and F.
