One of Ava's favorite books is this one. It has become one of my favorites too, best at bedtime.
We recently visited a local farm to see some baby lambs that had just been born that morning. These Sheep are Katahdin Hair sheep-they don't have wool?!? Being a knitter, I didn't dare to ask what they are bred for, let's not think about it. I like to think that sheep have a luxurious life, grazing in sunny fields, only to receive a welcome hair cut in the fall so us knitters can have our supplies...
We hiked along the field trail, and enjoyed the swooping swallows, just like in the book.
Sometimes I love my husband more from afar. I don't truly see him when he is close up, you know? I am grateful that he is a great father and that he adores our child so much. I am a lucky girl.
