Back again!

We were licensed for foster care in 2016. After numerous children over 6 years, in March we decided to stop doing foster care and closed our home. 

Wouldn't you know that the last two children we had in care (siblings) for 27 months, came back into the system right after we closed our home. 

However, we scrambled around and reopened so these children could have a familiar place with us again.

The joy is here!

Oremus pro invicem!

I was supposed to get up early today and butcher at least 1/2 the hog I put down on Saturday morning... but I slept in just a little bit, and then had coffee, and then went outside and could feel the heat coming on. We will try again on Thursday.

We did get to the scrap metal place today. Metal was selling for $10 per 100 pounds a month ago. Today it was only $7. 

We also planted some more tomato plants (Roma's) moved a pig and fixed some fencing.

My last day of classes and final exam is this week. Then I get 10 days off before the summer session starts.

Planting was a little late around here. (I still have to get my cantaloupe in), but we are picking lettuce, swiss chard and peas. 

I guess there is lots to comment about in the news and politics. I am just not that motivated. It is funny, when Mrs. Curley and I were first married, I was writing letters to the editor and losing sleep over all kinds of outrages. Mrs. Curley didn't understand why I got so animated. Now the roles are reversed.

Oremus pro invicem!
