Travis, Jennifer, Hazel, and Lila with Hugo, Poncho, and Queenie

A family of four: a bearded man holding a cat in a light cap leans casually, a woman with short curly hair, and two girls seated on concrete steps stand on the porch of a brick home.

These days, Travis is doing homeschooling, in addition to his regular job: helping people make chicken coops, and selling chickens and chicken feed. Travis expects many of his current new customers to become long-term clients.

Jennifer is still working full time, but now half the time from home. As a social worker who works with veterans, she is used to checking on people in person. Now she does it through tele-visits.
