Happy 4th of July!

It's been kind of a crappy few days around here! Friday afternoon Matthew said he didn't feel well, laid down to take a nap and woke up with a fever of 102. He was so sick Friday night, I was really worried about him. He slept in our room Friday night so I could keep on eye on him and Saturday morning he was feeling a little better.

By yesterday afternoon he was feeling a lot better...and then Clarissa got a fever. She was really miserable all last night. She didn't sleep very well. She woke up feeling a little better this morning...and then Josh started throwing up.

So here we are on a beautiful 4th of July laying around in our jammies. Josh is laying down trying not to throw up, Clarissa doesn't have a fever at the moment but it still super cranky and Matthew, who is feeling fine today, is being an awesome brother and trying to cheer them both up.

I don't know what's going on around here this year, but my kids hardly ever used to ever get sick. Now it seems like someone is sick every few months. Nothing has changed, so I don't know what the difference is. I need to start setting off weekly Lysol bombs in the house or something.

Shawn was asked to do a new job at church today (Ward Clerk for my LDS friends) so this afternoon he has to go back over to the church and do some training. He's kind of like an assistant to the Bishop (I asked him if he's the assistant Bishop, which is only funny if you're a fan of the Office), so he'll be going to meetings on Sunday mornings and doing whatever the Bishop needs him to do. All jobs at our church are volunteer jobs and we usually serve for a couple of years or so before they find something else for us to do. Because they just gave Shawn a bigger job to do, they released me from my job as the secretary of the womens organization today and they're finding me something less time consuming so that we're not both busy at the same time.

So our 4th of July really isn't that festive today. I feel bad that we're not doing fireworks or anything. We wanted to do something last night but no one felt up to it. Shawn has tomorrow off work so if the kids are feeling better we're going to take them on a picnic or something fun. One way or another we'll get some celebrating in! :)

So that's pretty much it for our news today. Nothing too exciting happening around here. The next few weeks are going to get busier though. This week Josh has scout camp, next week we're going to my hometown for a family event, the week after that we have a break and the next week the boys have taekwondo camp. That takes us through the end of July and school starts back up on August 11th! Summer always goes by way to quickly.

Happy 4th of July! :)

I'm sorry your kiddos aren't feeling well. Have a nice 4th anyway.

Hope your week goes well. I saw this post on another blog and thought you might be interested. It is about an adoption series on PBS
