Before you say that you didn't know we were expecting, I have to say that this was a bit of a surprise to us. Every year we buy sheep, usually bottle lambs for the girls to care for through the summer as part of their home school learning. We then sell them at the market in the fall. See post To Market, To Market.
It was a great experience for the girls to actually see (although they may never want to have children after this).
Spring...new life...birth of God's creatures by His design. Nothing beats learning through real life experience.
