Today is May 7, Faith's eighth Birthday. Hannah and Faith have always wanted a horse. Their grandmother and new home made that possible. The big boys and Hannah have all had a couple turns on him. "Champion" has lived here before but had to be sold for financial reasons before. It scares me to death thinking of my little girls on a beast that outweighs them tenfold and always has. Nevertheless, I suppose I need to let them grow a little from time to time. We are back in the habit of getting a couple loads of water daily as we've not even had water to clean clothes with in a couple weeks. Good news is that we have a few more containers to move water in so we can use a little more when cleaning. Well, we learned another lesson about farming. Ducks need enough water to escape predators. Dogs attacked the ducks we purchased a couple days ago and left no survivors. The laguna (pond) was almost completely drained when they used the water they tried to drill a water well. Today we really had to put christianity into practice. A family member of the boy that broke into the house (the same one that lied to the police on the boy's behalf), asked for some banana tree sprouts. I reluctantly allowed it, but only if our own farmer cut them (so that no damage would be done and the man would not be allowed to scope out the farm for another break in). God is good! He continues to teach us and hopefully we are gaining some wisdom.
