I give this blog the title of mother earth must be mad because the Covid-19 cases have reached an all time high. It is impossible to know who to believe or what to believe when watching the news, so I just don't anymore, however, I do believe the Corona virus is real so I do my best to take it seriously but not let it make me live in fear either.

I realized I did not even write a blog or work on my book at all last week!  I was in a fog.  I think possibly I was a little depressed but don't know why. All is well in my family's little farm world but...I can't say the same for the rest of the world.

So just to do a brief catch up here, Travis and I went to the wedding of two beautiful people over this past weekend. I met this beautiful couple through the school where we all worked. The wedding was outdoors in a garden surrounded by tall, beautiful trees and the ground was covered with lush green grass. The flowers they added only enhanced the beauty and the bride was absolutely stunning. 

Due to Covid-19, there were not many guests and we all wore face masks and were sitting with our own families, but apart from others. Same at the tables during the reception afterward. We would have loved to have brought the kids because they also had these teachers when they went to elementary school, but the virus issue just did not allow for children and extra guests. I am so happy their wedding turned out beautiful regardless and I believe it's not about the number of guests anyway.  It's about the two people who choose to vow to spend the rest of their lives together.  Thankfully the weather even held out until dark, then it started to get quite windy.  Travis and I decided to head home at that time, which leads me to my next update.

We arrived home quite late and the horses were waiting!  We did not ask the kids to feed them because while the kids do great with the smaller animals like the dogs, cat, chickens, and rabbit, they seem to always blunder when it comes to the horses and goat. They give the wrong feed or let one of them escape the gate because they leave it open...Plus, the horses have important meds that must not be mixed up.

Chewy the pony is only allowed to graze each evening from 5:00-7:00, but this particular night he had been out for 4 and half hours!  I was so fearful that the grazing would cause another set-back in his laminitis, but guess what?

He is walking and moving around like a normal pony!  All of our hard work and prayers seem to be paying off and I couldn't be more thrilled!

There is a mini pony up the road from us with laminitis and I am currently working with her family to get her back to a comfortable state. I wish I could take her in but don't see that happening at this time.

I have a feeling I will not be returning to work at public elementary school as an assistant because of the corona virus, but we will wait and see. Travis's job is highly stressing him out right now but that is a story/dilemma that I will share more about next time. It even exhausts me!  The kids are doing well other than Trevor looks exhausted from 4:00 a.m. orchard work and I worry about him catching Corona because he is so skinny and seems frail to me. Blake and Megan have become official zombies in the Coronavirus apocalypse, in front of electronics most of their spare time. Sometimes Megan goes outside to walk, ride her bike, jump on the trampoline, and she has had a few occasional play dates with one friend at a time off and on in the past month.  But Blake...is just existing right now. Sometimes we have a good laugh when I quiz him on what day of the week it is and what the date is.  He always gets it wrong.

We will get through this and prevail.  We count our blessings and take joy in each other every day.  God is good!
