Writing at the speed of life

After Matthew came down at 9:30 Saturday night with, um, stomach issues, we determined there was enough virus running through our family to warrant a day off from church.  Frankly, the thought of how I would feel if my kid was in class with Peter (given the nasty-looking rash on his face) was enough to keep him home.  One week won’t hurt anybody.

Instead, we had a really nice family day.  In fact, it felt a little like a vacation, especially since we haven’t all been home together for the last few weeks.  I am so thankful God cares about the details of our lives – even our emotional well-being.

Here are some highlights from our day:

I have more highlights to post, but it’s late and I’m headed to bed.  I’ll try to put up the pictures of Peter’s rash tomorrow.  It really just looks like a sunburn, and now it’s migrated to his legs, just as predicted.  Oh, internet, what would I do without you???
