We leave the farm tomorrow. Our last week has been somewhat sloth-like. I think we both feel we have done the things in this area we really want to do, and are trying to enjoy our last days at the farm. The last few days the kids have been sick due to some jugos naturalas they had at a local festival. We have been very relaxed lately with our consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables. I feel mostly lucky that it took us this long to get hit by anything. The kids had some juice, and the three of them got sick, but Madeline got the sickest. After a high fever and G.I. issues for a day, Aaron gave her an antibiotic. I felt very relieved to have him here and not have to take her to local doc.
I am excited to keep traveling, but the kids have loved it here so much and it has felt so much like home. Greta sobbed when she said goodbye to her friends today. MJ, of course, couldn’t quite understand. They feel things so differently.
This farm has truly felt like home to us. The kind of place I look forward to returning to at the end of the day, or even the weekend. Our kids have made wonderful friends here which has allowed us to relax in a way we haven’t elsewhere. And they’re in a safe place where we can let them roam for most of the day without even knowing where they are.
