A photo of Lisa and familyI have been trying to get at this computer now since last Monday! It’s been a crazy week. This is actually the first time I get to sit and write something longer than changing my status on Facebook.

Monday night was drum lessons; Tuesday night – Bible Study; Wednesday night, they had a movie night at the school; Thursday night was Awana; Friday night, friends came over; Saturday, I worked and the laundry was piled so high I needed a helicopter to get to the top!

Well, let me get to the main subject of today’s blog. Esme.

If someone would have told me 3 years ago that I would drive 2.5 hours, ONE WAY, on a cold, freezing, windy, snowy Sunday ... I would have told them they were nuts. Wrong gal!

If someone would have told me 6 months ago that I would be bringing a goat in the backseat of my car, I would have promptly corrected them and said, “No farm animals in my Jetta!”

Well, how we all change. I am the perfect example of that old saying, “Never say never.”

I enjoyed your story and all the wonderful photos too. Hope it is calmer by now and can't wait to hear more about your goats.
