Sometimes, life just doesn't go as planned. You're cruising along doing your thing, and then BAM! Trouble. It's been one of those times here at the farm. We go about our day to day, feeling like were accomplishing something, learning, like maybe, just maybe, we got this. The past two weeks have been a loud and overwhelming feeling of- No you don't! We could not get anything to go right, and it has been a series of mis-steps, and downright failures.
We had a calf die during labor and then the mama not be able to rebound. We've had chickens and cows escaping, equipment quit working, and fencing blown down. It has been a physically and emotionally draining few days, with Kaleb shouldering the brunt of it, working tirelessly.
It makes your head spin- wondering, is this right? Are we where were supposed to be? Doing what we need to be doing? Are we cut out for this, do you have the tools to make this work? But in the end, we understand that this is where we want to be. We have learned more from these past two weeks, then we have in the past few years-and we will be better prepared next time. I mean, that's kinda just it- you get some things wrong, and next time you'll know how to do it right.
