Back at the homestead William is feeding 3 wild baby bunnies. A farmer accidentally mowed over the nest and these are the only survivors. He has had them for 3 weeks and they are getting big and strong. Soon he will release them but hopefully I will be back before he does. William has been busy gardening and caring for the animals while we have been busy building rabbit houses, duck pen, and checking goat fencing. Trying to get everything ready to move the animals to the mountains. I know the goats will love the goat pastures as the grass is really thick and high and trees with limbs low enough for them to nibble on the leaves.

Tomorrow night my oldest grandchild graduates high school and it really makes me feel old and a little sad. Am very proud of Kristine and the path she has chosen but wish she wasn't growing up so fast. Sunday is family reunion on my mother's side. Sad that she won't be there because it was one of her favorite times of year. But she will be looking down and smiling over everyone. She only has 3 brothers and 2 sisters left from their big family and the reunion gets smaller each year. Just a happy/sad time for me and I don't handle emotions very well. Life goes on and blessings overflow each day. May yours be overflowing too.
