Connor came down with chills and a fever last Wednesday so we visited the doctor. He had all the symptoms of flu but turns out it was just a virus of some kind. He started feeling a little better by Friday night but then Saturday morning Kaitlynn and I woke up with fever. Thank goodness we all got sick (a) while Jeff was in town and (b) on the weekend.
One of his ideas for keeping the kids occupied during our sick days: building a fort. He is a pretty good fort-builder if I do say so myself.
There's nothing like enjoying snacks and a movie in the fort to make you forget all about being sick and not being able to play outside.
The little kids and I hung out in our PJs all weekend. I didn't realize how scary I looked until I saw this picture. Yikes.
I'm so thankful that Jeff has been such a caring nurse for us and I'm praying we're feeling better tomorrow morning when he returns to work. You know the kids are sick when they both asked to go to bed before 7 pm. I'm heading that direction myself.
