Favorite Things

I thought I would share a few of my favorite things that I am using this year to help me study God's word.

The first being the Scripture Reading Plan I am using provided by the Journey church. I like it because if you get behind it is easy to get caught up. :)

The second is what I am using to help me memorize verses. I have always wanted to memorize Philippians and shared that desire with my husband. He directed me to this site which has a VERY helpful guide to memorizing Philippians!

We are well!

We are well! We are well! We are well! So...I had a bad night of "feeling like" strep the next day I wasn't my "best" but was much better by Friday! We had our 2nd Koinonia dinner rotation tonight. It was our turn to host...so we all squeezed into our bitty apartment!!! It was a time of great fun and great fellowship. Emma DEFINITELY warmed up to everyone. Madeline and Mitchell are her new best friends. I'm sure she will warm up to Spencer soon enough. Seth better watch out...there is an older man in the picture now! :)

Not Again!!!!

We are just so lucky this month! My throat is hurting, my head is hurting and I am chilled. Emma's wonderful pediatrician who we lovingly call, Dr. Joe, said that he thinks I have strep again. Can he just be our doctor too??? Not only did he say that I have strep again he said that Josh's "mystery illness" was strep too, even though Josh did not have a sore throat he had all the other symptoms!!! I have called the school and warned them to be on the lookout for a call from me in the morning. We'll see just how the night goes and how I feel...I may be going back to the doctor in the morning so we can run up our bill even more. As long as Emma can stay well I will be THRILLED!

Sick, Sick and More Sick

Our household is really exciting right now. Emma had a fever off and on for a week and a half the day her fever broke (Wednesday) Josh got sick and had to go to the doctor his flu test came back negative but I think it should have come back positive. The following day (Thursday) I went to the doctor and both my flu test and strep test came back negative...but by Friday they were calling to say the strep test was positive. I knew my throat had never hurt so bad. By Friday evening I had hit a wall...a flu like wall and felt "just lovely". SaturDAY we were both feeling well...then the night comes...and Josh gets sick...everywhere. I spent Sunday caring for him, keeping Emma away and once again disinfecting everything. From what I have heard from the teachers I work with is that everyone has the "flu" but the flu test come back negative and everyone has strep that comes back negative the first day and positive the next. Whatever is going around is really strange...I don't want it again! Thankfully...Emma has not gotten what we have...or did she have it to begin with and we got it for her??? No pictures on this post you might be scared of what you see...we look pretty homeless these days! :) I promise there are pictures soon to come...of sweet Emma! :) Hopefully, Hopefully, Hopefully I will get to go back to work tomorrow!!!!!

Math Help

This video is too good to pass up. I'm surprised some of my students haven't tried calling for their math help!
