What a week we have had!!! One day a kid is sick, on the same day of the little ones birthday party...needless to say, he and Daddy had to miss it! He managed 2 1/2 days of school this week. Luckily he is a good patient and just read his books everyday.
I have managed to work out almost everyday though. It does give me more energy if I do it correctly and not stop the treadmill before my 20 min!
By the end of this week, my middle child got pretty ill, that lasted 4 days....she needs a little more attention when she doesn't feel well. She needs to be near me at all times.
By the time she was feeling better last little one woke up and decided that it was his turn to be sick...most of the night!
But through prayer, everyone was fine when we woke up this morning!!!! It never fails that when one kid gets sick, it stragles on for what seems forever before the last one finally gets better!!
I had a great time of just reading out loud to the kids from Scripture when they were all layed up. I love seeing them finally realize how to put the Word into their everyday life. The Lord is Good! If I knew how to put in music, I would put in a hymn. But I'm not that technical!!! Mabey I will find something more interesting to write about when Noahs Basketball games start, but until then, my mind is mush! I look forward to a week of healthy kids!!!

We started back to the grind of the school schedule! Everything seems to be getting back to normal.
Monday morning was hard. No one wanted to get up, and no one woke up on the right side of the bed!! But we made it through, and weren't even late to school! Daddy did stay home with Jon, so that really helped.
Now I just need to get me on a more efficient schedule. You that actually will accomplish more than one task per day!! I don't have any excuse with two of the kids being at school all day!!
I will try to get up before the kids, and go for a walk on my treadmill. Yes, Tom finally got it in the house. I have yet to use it for walking on though. It is great to hang sweaters on!!!! So I need to put the sweaters away, and actually use it for walking!! So if I can walk a mile or two, then I can take a shower, and start my first cup of coffee, I can wake up the kids, and be awake enough to have more patients with them while in the morning rush!!!
Well, that is my plan. I will have to let you know if it works!!! Now it is off to enjoy the quiet, peaceful house!
