Dairy Farmer's Thankful Thursday

One of my morning dairy farm  jobs is serving as the taxi driver 
to deliver the newborn calves to their private hutch in the 
calf raising area.  The calf's mother is walked to the
milk barn to join the milking herd and
I become the substitute mother making sure that 
each calf is monitored closely and fed milk and grain
twice daily. 
One of the best parts of my day is sharing this 
job with my sons. 

It's been a busy week with  one or two calves delivered 
every day and baling hay like crazy. 

I'm thankful that even in the busyness of farm life,
we always have time for celebration with our family.

We managed to celebrate a special "Going to Kindergarten"
lunch and shopping day with Hattie Claire 

 shared a picnic supper in the hay field  that 
ended with watching the  Decatur Barbecue fireworks show 
from the top of a hay bale.
We couldn't have asked for a better August picnic!
