New Farm Animals... The Sheep

Ol' Farmer John got us five sheep this last weekend!
We all hovered, watching them climb off the trailer and start grazing in the field.
I never knew our crew would get so excited over a few sheep.

They were sheared the day we got them...  so the boys think they look naked.  I guess they do. :)
We are all looking forward to seeing them all wooly.

Here is the view of the sheep from my office window.
I'm practically pinching myself...  it is so...  blissful!
It's amazing how peaceful they are to watch.

We have already had our first spiritual lesson from watching the sheep.
Ask the boys how people are like sheep. 
This was a perfect lesson while we were studying some of the Kings of Judah and the King of Assyria this week.  It was wonderful to see the light of understanding shine in their eyes when we could use what we had learned about the sheep to illustrate human nature.

So, here we are at Green Gabled Acres with
1 cat
5 rabbits
14 chickens
5 sheep
and 5 geese
I think we are a real farm! :)
