Little Lamb How Much Do You Weigh?

We now have 6 lambs that have arrived here on our farm. We are still waiting for the last 4 lambs to be born. Thus far it has been very easy. We have had to do virtually nothing except wait to make sure all is well.

Michael keeps great records so he was eager to check the weight of the new lambs. He has caught each new baby and weighed them with the help of our little man. You see we do not have a true farm scale and we didn't want to purchase one at this time. Michael took the bathroom scale to the shop and had Seth weigh each lamb. The last one that was born weighed 9 pounds. We have 3 girls and 3 boys to date.

By the way, if you look closely at the picture Seth is wearing his Thomas the Tank snow boots. You may be wondering why he is wearing snow boots after Memorial Day. I am sure there is some fashion rule that he is violating. Well for whatever reason his snow boots are his most treasured clothing item. He has deemed them to be his work boots. Every time his daddy puts on his work boots, Seth runs to get his. We are concerned that he will be wearing them to the swimming pool!

grace and peace,
