When we were selling the rest of our livestock, Mary-Kate shed some tears about selling off the few calves that were left, especially the ones that had been born since the fire. So her father (the man with the marshmallow center) decided to keep those six calves and a nurse cow. Yesterday the nurse cow had a calf. Mary-Kate has been in her element since then. She has been taking good care of the calf. Teaching it how to drink and checking to make sure it is warm enough. She has even milked the cow by hand to make sure that she was all milked out. I don't know what she is going to do on Monday when she has to go to school. Never has a calf had such good care. Is this what kind of mother she is going to be?
