Well I am now on day 8 of staying home with two sick kids. David has missed this whole week of school and Jaclyn and I have had to cancelled two different outings.
Last week it started with Jaclyn having the flu and David having a cold. They have now shared with each other and Jaclyn is now fighting a cold as she tries to heal from her flu and David has the flu on top of his cold. It's been a long week here at our house.
I have now lost track of how many boxes of Kleenex we have gone through and how many loads of laundry have been done this week. I also feel like a broken record with every ten minutes I am saying "cover your mouth when you cough" or "go blow your nose" and "remember to wash your hands".
I am hoping and praying that we are at the end of this sickness and that we can all get back to our normal routine soon. If you are the praying type please pray that my kids return to their normal health soon.
Here is a list I am thankful for this week: Netflix, Tylenol, my iPad, cozy blankets, apple juice, tea and most of all my husband. Chris comes home from work and helps me with the laundry, cooking, cleaning and the kids. In fact Chris is so wonderful that he lets me sleep at night and he gets up with them when they wake up from coughing. I am blessed.
Here are some pictures I took of the kids on the couch this week.
We having been trying to sell our house and after over seven months it is now sold. Praise God! We are now getting ready to move onto a smaller house which will suit our family and needs much better.
I have also been struggling with health issues which has been hard on me as well as my family. God blessed me more than I could ever imagined when he gave me Chris as a husband and David and Jaclyn as my children.
Chris is the most supportive man I have ever met, he works hard at his job and then comes home and helps me with the kids and housework. He also has me rest as often as he can.
David loves school and has been learning a lot and we are very pleased with is teacher, she really loves her class and it shows in her teaching. When he comes home he is excited to play with his sister and to tell me all about his day. David is also learning to read and is getting excited about the idea of reading by himself.
Jaclyn loves to have "girls days" with me while our boys are at work and school. We will play together. Then though out the day she will will want to play by herself while I rest. She's awesome! She has such an amazing imagination and is always pretending to be a character from a book or movie.
I sure do love my family they are a blessing to me everyday. They can always make me smile and I love spending my days with all of them.
This afternoon I set up a kids bed tent for the kids in David's room. So far they have played "camping" and are now watching a movie in their tent. They are even planning on having a Campout tonight together for bedtime.
I loved playing "camping" when I was a kid and it makes me smile seeing them play similar games to what I played with my brothers and friends at their age.
It's all amazing to me how quiet my day has been and how there has been no fighting between them today.
I am currently enjoying some quiet time all by myself. Now for a cup of tea.
Here are some pictures I just took of them.
I have recently been given the opportunity to review this wonderful digital scrapbooking software called MyMemories. I have only just begun to explore the options that this scrapbook software has. I have already spent hours working with this program and I look forward to spending many more hours as I work with my families pictures and memories.
I found this product so easy to use and have already been telling some of my friends and family about MyMemories Suite Digital Software. One of the things that I have appreciated about this product is how simple it is to use and make beautiful pages of memories. If I was ever stuck I could always go to the MyMemoriesSuite's YouTube site.
