Small groups

Our homeschool moms' group met last night, and instead of a more focussed agenda busy with planning events, field trips, etc., we had a time of more free-flowing discussion. I was reminded again of how encouraging and beneficial it is for women who are devoted to the Lord and their families to be able to share freely about the struggles we have in common, and as well as the wisdom the Lord had given each of us.

It's made me wish that I had time and opportunity to be in some kind of weekly bible study with like-minded women...

Sick kids

Friday was our 16th anniversary. My mother-in-law was kind enough to stay with the kids so we could celebrate. Doug used some hotel bonus points, and we checked into an Embassy Suites in exciting downtown Cleveland...

About 8 p.m., just as we were finishing dinner, the phone rang and our 11 year old was sick and throwing up with a migraine headache. So we checked out of our hotel and I spent the night watching over her...

On Saturday night we attended my husband's 25th high school reunion. We made sure that our daughter was okay before we left, but just before midnight (as we were getting ready to leave anyway) our son called.

Turns out he had a sore throat and didn't want to wake up his grandma. So, we directed him to appropriate medicine, and told him we'd be home in an hour. Hopefully, that's gonna be our quota of sick kids for a while!

Been a while...

Well, after a crazy month, I'm going to try to keep up again. Of course, with Christmas approaching, who knows.

We had a great Thanksgiving; Doug's mom and three of his brothers were here with their families. The one dark spot is that my 11 year old daughter seems to be getting frequent and severe migraines.

One of the few things more miserable than having one is surely watching your little girl have one!
