Baptism Birthday


3 years ago today, our first born was baptized in water and The Spirit. It was particularly poetic today as I watched my two little ones dance around in the cool rain falling from the heavens.

Thank God for the grace that led us to the waters of baptism.

Swine Flu Hysteria like you've probably never seen before

When I got this in my email today, I thought it was particularly amusing considering our recent bout with the H1N1 flu. Also, we rented the Winnie the Pooh movie the other day... Anne wasn't sure what to think about this picture. Jason and I got good giggle.

Jason is well now and we are still flu free!

So... Jason recovered from the flu

-but got an ear infection (undiagnosed but almost positive)

-started antibiotic (ZPAC)

-felt relief

-went to ER because his throat was swelling shut (reaction to the antibiotic)

-off the antibiotic

-Feels better

-goes to school (40 kids out of 100 out with the flu)

-Ear pain starts up again.

-Wants me to schedule a Dr. appt for him or get a prescription for Amoxil...


HOWEVER: Praise God that me and the kids haven't gotten sick yet.

The Flu

PRAYERS NEEDED Jason has come down with the flu and is having a rough time go it. I am doing a crummy job of helping him AND taking care of the kids - - let me rephrase that - - - I haven't been able to help him at all.

Also, having the flu isn't ANYTHING like you see in the Little Bear episode. What with friends coming to visit you and all, bringing stuff and hanging out in your room. And Mother Bear diagnosing it from a sneezing spell. Seriously, I think Anne wants to get the flu so she can have the kind of fun day that Little Bear had. Oh Boy.
