Journal entry by Corey Hetherington

Since covid became a global thing we've dreamed of the day that it would go away or we could at least all be vaccinated against it. We spent 2 years being very careful to protect our kids from the virus, a decision that we were made very aware many others didn't agree with but as their parents we felt it was our duty to do the best we could with what we had.  My mom gut hasn't done me wrong yet and I'm not going to start ignoring it now.  

All winter the talk of vaccines for under 5 was like a light at the end of a really long tunnel. Today we should have reached that light but stupid cancer has set us back.  

Rayne bravely had her first vaccine today,  Ryder had his booster. I'm so proud of my kids for understanding that the vaccine is what is best for not only our family but those in our community.   So now Rayne is just a little more protected but unfortunately we still need to be very careful to protect her and her immune system.  

We are still working on finding her a new little dog friend and she's very excited about the ones we've been looking at.  Chicaletta or hey hey are not going to be our new family members name, not matter what she tells you.  We will need to work on her naming skills.  

I'm guessing that since we received some bags from make a wish today that the process is moving forward.  

For anyone that ordered shirts I think they should be arriving soon.  The orders are still able to be placed, it just isn't a batch anymore.
