We've been hit by the flu again!

I don't know what it is, I think we're normally a pretty healthy family. Normally we deal with a few colds maybe an ear infection every once in awhile. Normally we're able to break the infectious cycle before it spreads to everyone in the house!

Well not lately!

This week honestly has to have been the worst week in the history of our family! This horrible bug started last Saturday with Sam, and has quickly passed on to everyone else, leaving us all feeling like crap for the full 5 day duration!

Well, everyone except for Emma that is. Emma proves once again that these little pesky American viruses don't even phase her mighty Ethiopian immune system!

Even Jud took two sick days! In the ten years that I've known Jud, he has never taken a sick day!

This was a bad one! I can't even describe how terrible we felt, let alone exhausted. We definitely found out it's not easy taking care of sick kids when you are sick yourself! This was probably my most difficult week since becoming a mom.


So, here we are one week later left cleaning up the disaster this bug has caused!

The house was a mess, the laundry was overflowing, I can't even begin to describe the horrible conditions of the bathrooms!

Ah yes, too much information!

Anyway, thank goodness we seem to be on the mend. But now we are home (instead of being at the cottage) on Memorial weekend with no plans...Which has actually turned out to be wonderful!

Here's a few pics of the boys playing football in the backyard today!



















And of course my gorgeous girls!
