A New Era

So this week officially marked the end of summer as the first day of school came around on Tuesday. My girl was super chatty that morning (and has been every day after, actually) and didn't even put up too much of a fight when I snapped this pic. Yes, I realize she looks every bit of 22. Sigh...

It's been a long week of early mornings (hello, volleyball) and long evenings seeing as we also brought a new goat into the fold late last week. Meet Forrest!

Instead of forcing his hand (or hoof, as the case may be) like we did Bruiser, I decided to embark upon Operation Goat Bonding over the weekend. And, while he may appear to be smiling in this photo, I'm relatively certain he was more terrified than anything.

Soon, though, he got used to humans and has now officially become my very best friend on the planet. In fact, I'm gonna venture a guess and say he'll be much more of a lover than Bruiser ever was...mainly because he's already giving kisses. And no one taught him how - it was an innate trait.

Of course, he also takes after me where his eating habits are concerned. Nature vs nurture and all...

We also said goodbye to the GTO last week. We finally paid it off in May but were concerned any repairs would be uber expensive since it was a limited edition. And we also felt like it was time to venture into the truck game again seeing as how livestock shows will abound this fall. Tonto is a happy boy and there's now a Ram to haul goats. :-)

In addition to all this activity, high school football starts tomorrow and Baylor on Saturday. That sound you hear is the angels rejoicing. Let the most wonderful time of the year commence!
