we’re stuck home today because all the kiddos have nasty colds that are just not going away! gracie was complaining of her ear hurting today, so we’re visiting the doctor in a couple hours. that means we’re missing school today and park day (so bummed – i need to connect with other moms!), bible study tomorrow… hopefully this will end soon! things to be thankful for in this: i’m not sick (yet) and gracie’s attitude has ben incredible thru this (lily…. not so much!).
another thing to be thankful for is friends. my sweet friend and neighbor offered to bring us dinner tonight. not necessary, but i’m smart enough to know when to accept help! and lisa, who i’ve been missing so much, just dropped by with a bag full of goodies! she made lily an i.d. bracelet, gracie a “big girl” necklace, and silas a spoon. thank you, thank you, thank you! so fun to have these things to cheer us up! and so good to have a quick visit!
i’d post a picture of silas’ spoon, but lily grabbed it and put it “somewhere special”. i’ll be searching for it later! for now, you can see it here (scroll down the page a bit).
