On our way back from a garage sale today, we stopped in a pasture by Allerton Park to watch the cows. We just pulled over on the side of the road and let the kids out of their seats and watched. For a long time. We observed the brand new babies and the mamas caring for them. We watched them find their way to the creek for water and back to the pasture to eat. We watched the daddy cow watching over . We heard them communicate with each other. I loved watching the kids watch the cows. So still and quiet. So eager to learn and to know.
