    Up All Night!

    This isn’t the blog post I’d planned for today. You’ll have to wait to hear me ramble on about my take on middle school. The reason…I’m tired.

    My youngest daughter has two market lambs. It’s time, maybe past time, to wean them from their mothers. Each spring for the last twelve years or so, we’ve gone through this process. Sometimes the ewes put up a fuss, sometimes the lambs, but usually it’s short lived. They can still see each other through the fence.

    But this year we have a real drama queen in the field. Not only did this lamb scream, she did so with a voice that pierced my sleep…all night long.

    Seriously, I’ve never heard a sheep who could baa louder than this one.

    It’s taken me most of the day to write this post. What can I say, I’m really tired.

    And the dog broke free of his chain so I had to pick him up at the Humane Society.

    And the steers broke through their fence and took a “field trip” down the property.

    And…well, you don’t want to know.

    But the sun was out, and God is good, and sleep is coming! AMEN!
