Hey Ya'll

Good Morning Ya'll.... Hope this finds all well. We have had quite a couple of weeks but I have high hopes that we are all better and not sick. Yet... anyways! Ha! Last week we had the stomach bug and everyone ended up with it but me. Imagine that with me cleaning it all up. Then the boys all came down with a new strain of virus called the "HIB" virus. It's a new strain of strep which includes and eye, ear and throat infection. So they ended up with antibiotics, ear and eye drops. I felt so bad for them. It must have been very painful because they are very tough when it comes to being sick but not that time. They really had a hard time. The Dr. said that it has just been horrible this year and until it gets warm and stays warm we're going to just keep it up. Anyways, we had a camping trip planned for last weekend because the kids were out of school on Monday. So we went ahead and went anyways. We had a really good time. I think that was what we needed. I was hoping all the fresh air would help. I guess maybe it did. We had a very nice time relaxing. There was a creek that ran next to our spot and the kids had fun playing in it. Although, it still was a bit chilly so I would only let them put their feet in. Of course, we had a couple of supposed accidental falls. Not sure how accidental they were but all was well. We stayed at Dinosaur Valley State Park. They have uncovered several Dinosaur foot prints there and so they are all along the park. So we did lots of hiking and trailing to find them. It was fun. The kids really enjoyed that. Especially the big ones. It was really alot of fun. We always enjoy a good camping trip. Anyways, I guess that's all the news I have here. Hope you all have a great day! :)
