Winter for the Desprets start bad. There crops were dying like the Vijayakar.
With no jobs, a trade was necessary. Manuel learns the art of making poison. He feels this will come in handy one day.
All too soon it was the twins birthday, little did Manuel and Bre know there life would be turned upside down.
Life was hectic in the Despret household. Someone was always dirty, tired, or starving.
Team work makes the dream work. Bre works at the poison station. It didn't make a lot of money but it gave them enough to survive.
"Dear can you bathe Iame?"
"I guess." Manuel sighs. He was exhausted. Not to mention the crops had died again.
Finally on the last day of winter everyone was in a good enough mood to go fishing and stock the fridge. They decided to leave the farming to the professionals because all their crops died.
They caught a lot of fish and crabs on the last day of winter. It made everyone in the family happy.
