Sweet Children

I work in Primary (Sunday School for children ages 3-11) at church. Our Presidency was called in August and we had the Primary Program in September. Needless to say, we didn't feel very qualified or prepared to have the Program so soon but we went with it.

Anyway the program was last Sunday. It turned out so well - it was such a relief. Then on Monday one of the seven year old girls made a picture/note for me and brought me cookies. It was so sweet. She thanked me for making Primary fun for her. I loved it. Her mom told me that it was all the daughters doing. Anyway what a sweetie!!

The end is coming . . . I hope :~]

We are in over a month and counting since our family came down with the Nasty Parasite that is afflicting Utah's pools. The last week in August is when we first got sick. There was a short time about two weeks ago that I thought we were in the clear. Then it finally struck me. Last week I came down with all of the symptoms of the bug. The same day Hailey came down with a fever and terrible cough. By the end of the week the two little girls had the cold symptoms as well.

Luckily Hailey and I are better now but yesterday I had to take Savvy into the Dr. because she had kept me up half of the night with sore ears. She had infections in both ears. Poor thing!

While we were at the Doctor a neighbor was there also and she mentioned that their family had had strep. All I could think was great . . . if strep is going around someone in our family will come down with it!!

I am keeping my fingers crossed that it will just walk right past our house and leave us alone. We've had enough!
