So, after an additional treat of dinner out ( this is so a treat for me, you know what I mean ladies) we made it to the bowling alley and everyone had a great time! All the kids were great and after an initial bit of help, the all wanted to independently take their turns. It was a lot of fun! There was some cheering, some sighs of disappointment and also a lot of laughs. Even a bit of wagering ( which was lost badly, no more wagers for you honey). Everyone had a fun time, thanks Grandma and Grandpa!!
We got home and got everyone snuggled in bed and then the real fun of our WEEK began. That sweet little almost 3 year old was suddenly sick and very sad. So, the rest of our week was taken over by a rotation of fevers, cool washcloths, fever reducing medicine, gatorade, soup, sleep, rest, movies, and this rotated nicely through 5 of the 6 people in our family. Finally today, we are down to just 1 semi-sick person and sadly it is the one that started all the fun.
We were not able to get a lot of our structured learning done, but we did read in our books and a lot of time was spent in tender embracing. I really dislike it when kids are sick. So, hopefully this week will be new and healthy and productive. Enjoy! ( and stay healthy)
