The goats have settled in great. We finally put them out into the electric fenced pasture and at first they both would burst right through it. I made one minor spacing adjustment and now they respect the fence. They have spent the last several days out in pasture and I couldn't be happier since we don't have a reliable hay source yet and our hay field has yet to been cut.
Mother's day came and went. I always find Mother's day a little difficult, even though I am a mother I still remember all the babies we've lost on the way to getting here and all those horrible not-yet-a-mother Mother's days of the years before our son came along. It didn't help that on Facebook, some friends of mine were complaining about Mother's day, I just wanted to confront them and say "do you know what lengths I went to to become a mother?" but I didn't. Everyone had their reasons to love or hate it and I guess I'll respect that.
