What I've been up to

Well this has been a craptastic couple of months.  We have been more sick this season than ever before, I think.  The past two weeks we've had a combo of viruses attack.  Some kind of stomach bug and than another virus with a fever for a few days followed by an insane amount of coughing.  Boy #2 stayed home last Friday from school, boy #1 stayed home Monday, and now boy #3 has been home the past two days.  We have an old house that the windows have been painted shut, so no airing it out.

The good news, though, is .... Spring has sprung in Georgia!  I've been able to leave the doors open and the kids have been non stop outside (when they're not running a fever).  Here is some shots of their new favorite pastime.

There happens to be some dried out vines hanging from one of our trees in the backyard.  The kids moved a play castle underneath to reach it good and then do their best Tarzan move.  I know it's pretty hard to see my boy; with his camo on he blends right in.

More good news - I got a job!  It's part time and working from home.  The kids have already spent my upcoming paychecks for me.  They are wanting to save them up and go to Disney World.  Guess who the girls are wanting to see the most there?  You'd think Cinderella, Ariel, or Belle, right?  Nope, they want to see Alice from Alice in Wonderland.  They LOVE that movie.  Can you imagine what a trip to Disney for 8 would cost?  I don't want to.

Of all this, I think the thing I'm most excited about is the 5th and final Fablehaven book is coming today!  Did I tell you how much I have enjoyed this series?  I'm telling you, it's Harry Potter good.  It came out yesterday and my UPS guy should be bringing to my door around 5ish.  I hate being the last one on his route.  Alas, I know what I'll be doing tonight and for the next couple of days!

If you like fantasies, or have kids who love to read - these are some great, clean books.  Two thumbs up from me.
