In south Louisiana, we often don’t see signs of fall until November. This week, Tropical Storm Beta has blown in cool air and windy, rainy conditions. It actually feels like fall when it should.
We are normally having football, rodeos, and back-to-school club meetings.
This fall has been so different. Our homeschool co-op is only meeting twice a month, there isn’t much football happening, and club meetings are still virtual or just beginning to make plans.
Our Louisiana high school rodeo headquarters is in Lake Charles, which was devastated by Hurricane Laura. We may not be able to begin having those until late October or November.
We are making the best of it.
Owen has been rodeoing (bareback) in the Louisiana Rodeo Cowboys Association, an amateur circuit. He is in the top ten and should qualify for the finals in October.
We have been able to place almost all of our show piglets in good homes with great 4-H kiddos. Landry has been able to continue her local youth rodeo circuit. Paycen has been able to start college classes, even if many are online or hybrid learning.
I have been performing animal chiropractic adjustments on dogs, cats, and horses with great results.
I was also able to adjust lower back and hips on a slot a wildlife preserve not far from me.
We are making the best of fall, as it signifies the end of this crazy year.
We have grown one Cinderella pumpkin with one more on the way.
Praying your fall finds you rebuilding and moving forward.
Many blessings and prayers. Especially for those affected by hurricanes, flooding, fires, and COVID-19.
