October 17-19



The news around here is that we are all healthy! What a great feeling to be back to our regular life! The other news is that we now have an aquarium. We used to have one for several years, but the old one sprung a leak twice so I got rid of it. That was several years ago and I have been missing the peacefulness of having an aquarium. So we got it on Friday, got the water all ready and on Saturday we got a few neons to test the water. They did great. Yesterday we went back to the pet store and bought quite a few more fish including this angelfish and several more neons. The bad new? The angelfish has eaten 5 of the neons! We have names him Jaws!

October 14




Home on Wednesday. Josi's temp stayed down most of the day and then headed back up around 2:00. So the blurry thermometer to remind me of why we can't go back to school yet. Her Aunt brought her jello cut out in the letters-Get Well Soon Josi, and Cadi is learning how to add multiple numbers on the abacus. Sure takes a lot of thought. I remember watching people use an abacus in China and thinking what a mystery they were. Beginning to figure it out myself!

Still at home today with sick child number two, but one of the benefits was that after the fog cleared and the sun came out I spotted a bunch of spider webs on my back porch.

3 options...

What can I say. Life just took over and I haven't kept up with the blog or with taking a picture daily. I guess I have 3 options. I can just quit, I can try to catch up, I can start out fresh today. The first one doesn't seem that great a choice to me, so I guess I will try to go with the 3rd option and catch you up a little with what's been going on. I've spent 6 of the last 9 days home with sick kids. This morning Josi's fever, which got over 104 degrees yesterday, seems to have broken. She is sleeping peacefully this morning. We did get to go to Anchorage a few weeks ago and see the Lion King. Most of the pictures are from our trip. Anchorage always gets more fall than we do. The cat and flower are at my friend, Maxine's house. She always lets us stay at her house when we go to Anchorage. She is a huge blessing in our lives! The other exciting news is we got a new t.v! Let's hear it for the PFD check! Oh one more picture. I made the wall hanging from material that MAxine gave me. Isn't it cute?
