Sunday afternoon excursion to the Loretto Motherhouse

Usually on Sunday afternoons we take the boys to the soccer field adjacent to Trace-Pitman Greenway to play soccer. However, it has been raining all morning and we didn’t think we could play soccer on the wet grass. We drove to the Loretto Motherhouse in Nerinx, Kentucky, instead. I have such fond memories of that place from my retreats, so we go there from time to time to picnic and wander around.

We walked around Badin Pond and then to Lake Mary. There were interesting wild flowers and butterflies everywhere we went. On the way to Lake Mary, we walked past a farm and saw a cow peeing. As we were walking back to our car from Lake Mary, the farmer’s wife waved at us and asked if we wanted to see baby cows. We went over and she showed us two newborn calves and their mothers. David asked her if cows had personality and she said yes. She said one mother cow is quite relaxed around humans and the other would be on alert whenever any human approaches her calf.
