Some frustrating tea....A chemical plant burst aflame about 20 miles NE from us, sending toxic fumes airborne. They decided to let it burn out since it was too toxic to approach (what’s being circulated anyway). Who knows anymore. So, for days, a black cloud of reported paint and glue chemicals filled the horizon. No biggie.
Air tests came back clean. Soil samples came back clean. No worries. The people living in the area reporting nose bleeds, nausea, and headaches...coincidence. Totally. Kati’s gymnastics teacher who lives in the area and has had a continuous cough and headache since the explosion...allergies, obvs.
And today, just reported, a benzene leak. Benzene...that can affect bone marrow and blood, causes cancer, leukemia, aplastic anemia. 
Texas national guard called in and several communities just NE of us on shelter-in-place guidelines. Several schools closed. 
BUT. The air quality is clean. Soil is great. They said so. The water tests haven’t been completed yet, but I’m guessing clean. Just a hunch.
So now, the kids are back inside with air purifiers on full blast and lemon essential oil rolling.
Just wow.
  • Dirty knees and pearls, timidly aware and precociously all-in/all-out, partners in crime and worst tattletales, best friends and biggest rivals...ah, siblings 💕 They love each other to death and are practically inseparable...their forever friend 👦🏻👧🏼
  • Luke always hikes the same way....starts off chillin and strollin along and then sees rocks and water and dirt and loses his mind, resulting in soaking wet and covered in mud.

My hubs asks why I pack so many clothes for them, and I’m like, well, so when they soak their first outfit of the day, I have a backup, and then when they soak their backup, I have a replacement, and then there’s a dinner outfit because their replacement is too dirty to enter a respectable establishment.

Oh yea, momma’s got this figured out 🤓

Our last day of hiking sees chillier temps, but a great time although Kati was asking for her sand and seashells....so I’m thinking she’s gonna be my beach girl while Luke could probably live in the woods and be content....my little mermaid 🧜🏼‍♀️ and mountain man 🧗🏼‍♂️☀️🌻🐬
  • Who’s momma’s number one fan?!?!
