For tummy upset and diarrhea, use apple cider vinegar. Mix half and half with honey, put a couple tablespoons in a cup, add 1/4 cup cold water and sip on it. The ACV will kill the bad bacteria and not the beneficial bacteria. Honey is anti viral.

It was sunny lol but very windy. Well what every Josiah had it didn't last long by two he was starving and held everything down. He hasn't felt or acted sick since and no one else is sick. So what ever that was I am glad its over.

Okay so i been watching my does for signs of pregnancy and these two look bigger in the morning then they use to and I can still feel their ribs and all their other bones so I am thinking they a starting to show some. They in pretty good condition for their first year. I took these before they got to eat. I thinking they might have gotten breed earlier then i thought. I didn't notice any actual heat but they were with the buck so no tell exactly when they will go.

I’m probably way too late to be jumping on about the schooling thing, but have you heard of sos, switched on schoolhouse. It is a Christian based computer curriculum, it does a lot of the grading for you and the scheduling is easy. My only complaint was the math, I went from math-u-see to SOS math and hated it, eventually went back to math u see. My mom unschooled my brother and I until like two years before high school for me so we could transfer the college credits easily. So, from the other side of the desk, I can definitely recommend switched on.
