We have had a whole two weeks full of sickies. As of right now, three out of the four kiddos are recovering from a cough and cold. Miraculously, Meg hasn't caught it yet. Praise God!!! I am surprised, as she is usually the one who catches whatever is going around. This time around, Brian and I contracted it first, then Abigail, Dylan and lastly, Amy. While it isn't too bad of an illness...it does linger on and we are all about *done* being sick and are praying to recover quickly!
This week in school, we have set a challenge for both our school aged kiddos: To complete a set number of pages in their workbooks for a prize! The prizes are a secret...but they're definitely good ones! Amy and Dylan have been at it "hammer and tongs" for three days now, and even though the goals I set were pretty high, they both are on target to achieve them.
I *Love* This Picture Of My Little Squish!Last week, we celebrated "I Love You" day; our family's version of Valentines. Apart from a few tests in the morning, we took the whole rest of the day off school, and made sweet treats, decorated, played games, did chores and prepared for a fancy-schmancy dinner! I think everyone enjoyed themselves. Our dessert was rather on the sweet side and the sugar effect on the kids was definitely...um...noticeable!!! I do hope to get the pictures from that up in the next day or so...we shall see!
"And ye shall serve the LORD your God,
and he shall bless thy bread,
and thy water; and I will take sickness
away from the midst of thee."
