Our Week...

We have had quite the week.  All three of my children have been sick.  It all started last week with colds.  One cold turned into an ear infection which has since turned into walking pneumonia.  We also have a case of the croup and in the words of our pediatrician (whom we have seen a total of four times (!!!) over the past week) "one really bad sinus infection."  Yesterday all three of my children were seen by our pediatrician during the same visit - this was a first for our family!

Although it is officially spring, we received a big snowstorm on Tuesday, which brought us nearly a foot of new snow.  It has also been very cold.  Despite the less than springlike conditions outside we decided to make the inside of our home feel like spring this week by planting some seeds and playing with dirt....studies have proven that playing with dirt boosts a child's immune system and at this point I'm willing to try anything!!!    ;)   Pictures coming soon.

I know how hard this week has been in your home. I've been so sad (and sadder) each day to hear the latest updates on the Grace, Jack, and Eve's conditions. I so wish I could wave a magic wand and make it all go away especially all that coughing. Let's just say--this has to be the very last of the colds and such well into next Autumn.

I love the "dirt" studies and the way you enjoyed telling us that fact!

And finally, a very large 'Yes, Please' to the upcoming pictures!

All of most precious healing love and thoughts to the children and you & Bob as your sweet family gets better and better each day.
Love Forever, Maddy
