A Saturday on the farm

Just after breakfast, our cow Posie had her calf. She was a few days overdue and we were beginning to wonder if we had imagined the whole pregnancy. But clearly she knew what she was doing, as the weather was much more pleasant today than it has been. We were able to be a part of the whole experience. Here are a few pictures from the birth.

Posie's healthy baby boy. His name is Willie.

After lunch, Caleb had a tractor driving lesson with Dad. It looks like he is doing a fine job of raking the hay.
