It was quite the learning experience for all of us! Allen turned out to be a great goat midwife. :) Matt's face stayed a combination of curiosity and horror. I tried to document this birth with pictures and video, praying that it would be over quickly for poor Lucy (who was crying in a heartbreaking way) and that
Lucy was getting huge and we were worried there would be two, but fortunately only one, Ace!
We hadn't seen Walker Kitty for a while. She apparently missed all the excitement while she was sleeping with the chickens.
Here's a video of the little guy trying to stand. And his little bleat is so sweet!
It was almost bad timing, because we had a Crowder concert that evening (although of course we'd have missed it if needed). Fortunately, Lucy and Ace were all happy, healthy, and settled in with plenty of time for us to hit the road. And the Crowder concert was GREAT! It was the kids' first concert and the most eclectic one Allen or I had seen (in a good way). It's hard to describe, but their website had a good description: It was like a laser equipped Cracker Barrel was dropped to planet earth by alien beings who fancy the earth music of Johnny Cash, Dexy's Midnight Runners, L.L. Cool J, and George Frideric Handel. It was so fun!
