It's been nearly a month without an update and I just realized what my last post was: a cute, naive hope that our little season of sickness was about finished. Bwahahahaha! Since then, we've had 3 children with pneumonia and then sinusitis. It was a doozy of a month. I snapped this picture of Gracie in the middle of the night. We both fell asleep during a breathing treatment.
The adorableness and snuggle time made this a surprisingly not-terribly-unpleasant season of sickness. Lots of reading. Lots of hot tea. Lots of cuddles. Lots of Doctor Who. Lots of Jane Eyre. If it weren't for the complete lack of sleep, anxiety over their oxygen levels, lingering smell of sickness, or being completely cut-off from outside human interaction, it would have been outright enjoyable.
Everyone is well now. We're moving slowly, like RipVan Winkle recently awakened, but we're moving. We're jumping (in slow motion) back into school this week and it feels good to be alive.
