Summer Fun… or Not

Well we’ve been having fun…. and a whole lot of sickness over here.  We started with the worst flu I’ve ever experienced. The kids and I ended up with a fever for about 4 days each, up to 103.  We ended up taking one to the emergency room.  After 2 weeks we were FINALLY healthy and 2 days later the first one came down with the chicken pox.  The baby is currently running a 103 degree fever.

I’ve decided to see the blessings in all of these things.  Like the fact that for the life of me, I never got my baby to take a bottle… so we are STILL nursing.  Which means I can comfort him greatly when he isn’t feeling well and make sure he’s hydrating.  Or the fact that my kids have now had the chicken pox and we will NEVER have to worry about it… AND everyone got a boost to their immune system so maybe we’ll avoid the shingles in old age.  Or the fact that we are getting all of these bugs out of the way before Jessy starts her dance/preschool class this fall. I just say Thank You Lord for all those things that I hated at the time but are making sense now.

We’ve been enjoying our summer as much as possible, which really means staying home most of the time.  We made ice cream for the first time with the kids and it was such a great experience.  It brought back all of those times watching my dad making ice cream growing up.  I inherited my grandmother’s ice cream maker so it’s really nostalgic.

Jessy has been getting ready for dance school and I’ve been brushing up on my photography skills and having fun.  This adorable outfit is her absolute FAVORITE.

The top is my Camplight Apparel… a great company with great shirts, you need to check them out and THIS shirt is on sale through Monday so get one!  They have all styles and sizes, even adult.  The tutu skirt is from Stormy Stitches… and guys, this is awesome.  I love supporting moms, so when this little gem turned to be AMAZING quality for such an awesome price… Go. Shop.  I’m going to buy again and again from her.

And not to leave out the little dude that turned 10 months last week while battling the sickies.  He is such a good boy, ruff and tumble but sweet and cuddling.  The perfect combination.
