"You've been Snake Bit." These were the words of our doctor the past week and a half when 4 out of 5 kids were sick. To recap, we have had a little of everything...colds, coughs, nosebleeds, headaches, low-grade fevers, really high fevers, sore throats, croup, strep, diarrhea, mosquito bites that made huge wells, nausea, laryngitis, stomach pains resulting in a C-14 test, chest pains, sores in the mouth and lips, body aches, unable to breath resulting in breathing treatments at the hospital, and maybe something else, but I think that is it. It just seems never ending around here. It started with Regan and Katherine and moved to Benjamin and Hudson. Lauren has stayed clear for the most part.
So, what do you do when everyone has been sick for so long and you need a distraction? You use the leftover fondant that was still in the refrigerator from the birthdays and give ti to the kids for edible play-dough. You can see in the picture which two are still sick here (bottom two)
It wasn't long before this guy came down with it. It hit him pretty hard. Poor guy really couldn't breathe. Thankfully, the medicines seem to be kicking in and he finally ate lunch today (although he skipped dinner) Hopefully, the kids won't share with mom and dad!!

My little girls were SOOOOO excited this week to find out that there was a new billboard up advertising their kindergarten. They BOTH made it on to the advertisement!
Group shot with all the "kids" (some on the mend and some headed down the sick path)
Since homeschool has been a lot of study about how bacteria and viruses affect our bodies...we decided to learn a little something more fun. Tadpoles and frogs it is! This was Hudson's first time to catch anything. I had to put up both pictures because his super excited happy picture looks like he didn't catch anything.
So glad this girl is back to normal now! She is a master tadpole catcher :)
