because I had completely forgotten how hard it is on a body (albeit an older one - our pediatrician has already reminded me I'm "no spring chicken") to raise a baby! We are pleased to announce the arrival of our new precious daughter, Virginia. It may be a while before I make it back up to the goats. Chuck is going to be on his own up there at least until I heal up and she is old enough to handle the weather, or the temperatures regulate a little bit. I apologize in advance for being slow to get pictures to folks, and slow in responding to emails. I am simply a bit overwhelmed at the moment but hopefully we will all get in sync soon.
