We had a really terrific week. Everyone was finally feeling well. On Monday, the younger two went to an ecology class at Latta Plantation, and Sims and I went on a hike. Sims and I found signs of spring-small blossoms in the woods, a few butterflies and migrating birds.
On Tuesday, Parks and I headed into the city to check out a freestyle BMX course. He had a blast.
Wednesday, we hung out and enjoyed the beautiful day. Parks went to a shelter building class, and Sawyer added some color to her hair.
Thursday morning, we went horse back riding through the fields.
Then-BAM! Thursday afternoon, the flu hit. All three kids are down. I hate it for them. We have not truly gotten sick in years. However, we have been battling viruses and infections on and off since November. What happened in November? Personally, I think sugar. We had several birthdays in November and the holidays began. We ate horribly. Then we started some home projects that kept me from cooking the way I usually do (I got completely overwhelmed and stressed-aka: Mommy meltdown). We are back on track with the food now, so hopefully we will be getting out of this rut of sickness.
I hope you are all staying well!
