good fridays

This week's entry for 'good fridays' will contain more eye candy than words.  I am recuperating from being hit by a semi-truck of germs that caused my joints to be sore and my head to be stuck to a pillow.  I am convinced the germs of 2011 are some of the strangest critters on the planet and are wreaking havoc in our home.  I am thankful I survived (I know, I am a drama queen) and can think of 3 things to be thankful for from the last week.

1.  Last Saturday we took a family trip to the State Historical Society.  What a gem of a place!  We will be back . . .

2.  Maddi and I attended a Valentine Dance for 'Circle of Friends', a group who serves the special needs community of our school district.  Here Maddi is seen playing ball with one of her favorite kids, Jeffrey.

3.  Monday morning was a no-school day and in true fashion, the younger kiddos did not take advantage of sleeping in.  Fortunately they are old enough to keep themselves entertained while I keep the bed warm.  I awoke to silence and was worried they had been abducted.  No fear!  They were found in the living room quietly reading. 

What are your 3 thankful things from the past week?

All fun. All good. Esp. little ones reading! And, we have the germs here, too -- I didn't say anything since I was trying to be positive -- but they are positively everywhere!

umm..today's your BIRTHday?? How's that for good? God's grace extends to you (to me!) the weakest of the weak! Amen! I am celebrating YOU today, friend. That we will meet again ;-)

and I love your Maddi. Just love her heart. We enjoyed talking about her yesterday.

1) All 3 girls had surprise strep throat. Surprise because not a single one had a sore throat or fever -- just 1 with a cough that I decided to have the doc check. She swabbed positive, so the other 2 were tested and **POOF**!!!! This is a good thing because they were the healthiest sick bunch I've ever known!

2) As a result of said sick children, we were **FORCED** to have a jammie/movie/relaxing day home together :)

3) Sugar aced her spelling test, despite missing 3 days of school this week.

It's good the kiddies are old enough to have some non parent time. A red letter day for me was when Sheldon could make it to the bathroom to barf without puking on the floor.

I love that your kiddos got up, were quiet and speant their time READING. Holy cow! What's your secret??? :)

Heidi / D-Tales said...

I am in total agreement. This year's germs seem so much worse!

Waking up to silence...with the kiddos awake...now that's something for which I'd be truly thankful! :)
