Oh my gosh! Two posts in two days! Holy goat!

I don't remember if I've mentioned that for a little while there we were seeing a lot of Cousin Charlie...but we were. And let me just say that there was a lot, a LOT, of good fun and creative play. For example, on any given day you could have a Superhero Cousin:

Or a Pirate Cousin:

It also helps to have a Pirate Grandpa sometimes.

And while I could spend a lot of time telling you about all the fun we had with Charlie, I have a very limited time here, and I know that some of the readers of this blog might appreciate seeing one more picture, known around here as Silly Brother:

As usual, you're very welcome. Please note the tractor outfit. We like to farm it up around here.

Until next time~

Guess what I did?

I milked a goat!

That's right, a couple of days ago, I milked our girl goat for the first time! We were so proud, or at least I was proud that I figured it out. Thank you to my two children and to La Leche League and kellymom for teaching me a WHOLE lot about the whole process, although of course goats are a little bit different. But it was quite satisfying to be able to figure it out and know that hey, we can get goat milk!

Of course, right now that milk would taste like weeds since we let them graze all over the place, but the actual drinking of the milk will come at a later date, like the next time she actually has a baby.

Oh, and naturally, last night when I milked her again I squirted Ben. It was totally an accident.

I swear!
