Our kittens are born.....

Our cat had kittens in May!!
The kids were so excited for them to be born!
It happened on Friday the 13th as we were putting the kids to bed. We knew something was up because she got extremely affectionate and loving right before she gave birth to the first one.
Here's one of the sweet baby kittens still in it's amniotic sac!
The mama cat quickly got to work cleaning up those sweet babies!
So tiny and cute!
The kids got to be front and center on the action!
It was a great homeschooling lesson! Haha!!
She had 4 babies and they all look exactly like their mama!!
Grace was tired in this picture but she was pretty excited that the mama cat decided to have the babies on her bed. She slept with them on her bed for a few nights before I moved them to the ground.  
Here's the sweet kittens all cleaned up!!

That is so neat! What a great lesson for the kids. How did they handle it?

That is cool. I remember watching our cat have kittens when we were little and thought it was fascinating!
