Life Lessons

Well, Tori's babies all died this morning. I guess they must have used up all reserves they had because they all died within a couple hours of each other. =*-(  We finally figured out what was going on.  Tori stopped eating 2 days before she gave birth, which is really normal. However, she has not started again, therefore, she had no milk to feed the babies.   Not really sure if she is stressed or sick, so we are really hoping everything turns out ok with her. We've tried everything to get her to eat, but nothing yet.   We were told as far as breeding her, not to totally give up on her. That with her next litter she may be more prepared and not as stressed.   Not real sure we would voluntarily set ourselves/Tori up for that again though.   J has learned some very hard life lessons with his buns.  Which is part of life, but still breaks the ol'heart.  We  were hoping this season went better than the last, but it's not off to a good start.  But, maybe the bumps are out of the way and the rest will be smooth sailing.  

Super busy for the next 2 weeks. Watching M play in Regionals tonight...whoot whoot!.... My mother in law will be flying in for a week, basketball games on Saturday,  Victoria, Chloe and Caleb will be staying the night with us Saturday night, "real" track practice starts Monday for J....he's not sure how he's  feels about track, next weekend we will be in Wichita Fri and Sat for a 4-H photography event. 

And I had to post this picture.  Only at my house is it totally normal to  see dirty socks in a potted plant. The funny thing is is when I saw them in there, I didn't even think about it. Just went to go pick them up and put them in the dirty clothes and thought, "Wow-this is kind of weird." HAHA
