tourists...not really. We had some free tickets to ride
the train at Strasburg Railroad and visit the Choo-Choo
barn . We had a fun day just being together...pretty
rare during the summer months. We are looking
forward to one last trip to the beach next week, and
celebrating Matt's 34th birthday before
we get another flock of 75,000 chickens to try to
keep alive. Yee-haa!!

He got to take Corner Kicks all game today which was kinda fun. "My favorite part of the game was kicking the ball." (Shooo...that's good, right?)
And yet another of his biggest fans...between coloring pages. :)

Matt had been away at a hay auction this morning, and I was out with the kids, and noticed the mommy goat "Princess" who we have been watching to have her babies, was definately out of sorts. Upon a closer look, I knew she was in labor. (It was all coming back to me so quickly watching her...yikes!) She was pacing and maa'ing very quietly, and was leaking a bit of fluid. So...I called Matt asking if we knew what we were doing. :)Upon confirming my suspicions, I came in and hopped on the internet to see what I could find. To my surprise, I found a lot of helpful information on "kidding goats" and some great pictures of fetal positions. We were anticipating Princess was having twins...which made me a bit more nervous...
Princess did infact have twins. Little Addie was in the most perfect position for goats to deliver...her brother; however, was in the most compromising position, and even with the assistance of Matt, did not survive. :(
Birth continues to be an amazing process whether human or animal. Kaden was also watching...it was so fun to watch him process it all and make an attempt at answering some of his questions as to why things sometimes go wrong.
So, please pray for a safe (and fast...did you know a goat's delivery should happen in 20 min,... and if it's taking longer, it's a sign of trouble?) delivery for our much anticipated child... due Sept. 30th. And stop by to visit Princess and Addie if you are in the area...And us too. :)
