The past few days haven't been the most pleasant, I'm afraid. Ruth seems to be getting better but she still tosses her cookies on occasion... Hannah is better (PTL!) but Martha & Jesse are still not feeling well.
It rained all day Sunday so we moved into an empty grain bin that Mr. R. has on the place. It was so nice to get in out of that constant wind! We laughed when eight of us kids were camping out there night before last. It was eight kids in a bin. :-) (Thank you to Dave and Helen R. for letting us use their property... it was a huge blessing!)
A nice lady named Marcy came day before yesterday with apple butter and hot rolls (Mmmm!) and a couple of other things. It really brightened our day and upped our morale! Thank you!!!
I'm not sure when Dad decided this but he decided to save us a long time of travel by getting someone to trailer us to Great Falls, MT. Yesterday, he got ahold of Dale. A. who, with his lovely family, trailered us 420 miles to that location.
It seems a pity to trailer so much but with sick kids... a lame horse (yes, Al is limping again...) and cold weather on the way, I believe it is the wisest option. Maybe someday we'll be able to do something like this again... properly. ;-)
Now Mr. A. has kindly offered to trailer us home. Dad just came in and told us. He's not sure what to do but we're praying for wisdom. It looks like we're going to get trailered clear to Kalispell. We'll have to stay away from our friends there because we're sick.
So, that's that... I don't know when I'll be able to update this blog again but if I don't get to it for awhile, it was lots of fun writing here. :-) Thank you for reading it and commenting!
