The Lord has blessed us with a mostly healthy winter. We’ve dealt with a few sniffles here and there but nothing significant until last Tuesday evening. Scott had been out getting wood in the bitter cold. When he came in he felt awful because his asthma had been set off. Wednesday morning he realized it wasn’t just asthma, though. He had a fever, chills, headache and was aching all over. Then he started coughing, too. His appetite disappeared and yet he had to keep up with milking and chores. By Wednesday evening John and Noah both had it. By Thursday evening, Isaiah and Esther had it, too. Everyone is on the mend but no one has fully recovered yet. This is the nastiest flu we’ve ever encountered. I’m thankful that I didn’t get it although I have been dealing with a cold. And I had a horrible headache all night last night. So needless to say we’ve canceled school the last few days. The Lord willing we’ll be ready to jump back in again tomorrow morning.
On a side note: Can you believe I finally posted? Ha! I hope to keep it up, too. 🙂
And I just had to share a newly discovered blog, Aspiring Homemaker, written by a lovely you lady, Mia. She has been an inspiration and encouragement to me already. 🙂 I hope you’ll take a few minutes to check out her wonderful blog.
