wow, I thought the summer couldn’t get more hectic. Turns out it CAN.
Remember when I mentioned the kids got really sick back to back? Well then they had severe tonsillitis, some of the worst our Dr has even seen in fact. I thought we had our summer sickness but nope, the kids got the stomach flu a week later. I’m happy to report I survived my first puke fest as a mom!
It was a miserable experience, not because of the throw up, no, that’s never really bothered me. I’m from a huge family, someone is always sick ! No, it was the watching my babies throw up and have no idea what’s happening to them. That. Was. The. Worst. They are not so worse for wear, just on some strong probiotics now to boost their little systems back up. Husband and I really came together on that week, we make such a good team.
Since being sick we’ve been so busy with summer adventures, trying to cram every bring in before the weather gets any more gray. The smoke cover here in Washington is really scary. We’ve been praying for all the firefighters protecting us!
Our excursions usually focus around the subject we are learning in our little homeschool and that has been such fun. Caidoc is learning so much. He even read his first word the other day! Zelie has been obsessed with books and duplos which makes for wonderful schooling sessions with both of them.
I’ve gotta get better put blogging all the amazing things we’ve been able to do lately but between planning those trips, the property management job, our soccer academy, and everyday life, wow, it seems almost impossible! I’m very excited for things to slow down here soon.
Speaking of slowing down, I’ve been phayically having to slow down. I did something to my knee. I’m not sure what yet but I can’t straighten it all the way and repetitive motion ( you know, like.. Walking , haha!) can cause pain if I don’t sit down and rest it. I’m pretty peeved, since my half marathon is coming up. I’m finally caving to husbands demands that I see someone about it. I’m sure it’s not serious, but I’d rather not wait till it becomes that way.
Anyways, we recently discovered geocaching. It’s an awesome little “treasure hunt” to do with the kids on hikes and we can’t wait to do more! Our first experience was quite… Well, let’s just say I might have accidentally led my poor little family on a bushwacking escapade that led no where. Luckily, husband stepped in and we found our “treasure”. 😁
(That’s us recently celebrating one year of homeownership!)
We have another really busy week coming up, so I’ve gotta go prep for that. Monday’s can be brutal if I don’t 🙂
