For our family council we made a list of some fun things that the kids wanted to do- chick flip, park, strawberry patch, etc. We did a good bit of that until I got sick.
Monday started of with a bang- trip to Lowes to get plants and seeds for the garden. Since we were passing by chick flia, i decided we could go on and check that one off- so we ate a brunch when it wasn't super busy and Linc took a short power nap. It was perfect and beat the lunch crowd.
We planted our seeds - did cucumbers, tom, bell peppers and marigolds. Coop was really excited to try it.We put them in bags like last year when gege showed my how.
- For FHE, we did our Easter egg tradition, 12 eggs filled with things of the saviors last week with the last one being empty. I loved when we all sat down and opened one at a time and discussed it. Of course we hid other ones after and they just love searching for eggs- just like me when I was little and prob most other kids too.
- Tuesday we had an Easter egg hunt. We normally do it at the Yaus but they were just getting back from a trip so i offered to host. everyone had a great time and Coop doesn't mess around. He does a great job of stopping when he finds his share. Haven and Ella just sat in the grass together and eat all their candy. That evening I went to the temple with Chels and always grateful for the parenting and spouse tips i receive.
Wednesday we went to the strawberry patch in the afternoon and for some reason always get the dates mixed up when we have the elders. We were a little late leaving to make it home for dinner and Matt called and asked if we had dinner- yes, left over soup. Well, the missionaries where there waiting?! What?! So I made a quick stop to grab pizza that we had to bake at home with all 4 kids who were dirty and hungry. Rushed home with the Elders waiting and cooled the pizza to eat. It was a whirlwind. Coop had ball practice too so short, sweet and crazy! We pulled it off. whew!
Thursday went down hill and got sick quick. Fever, chills, headche. I was useless. I would even fix a snack for linc and had coop feed him. He was a huge help! The heads brought soup over that evening and I ate a bit but felt so rough I could't eat much.
Fri I took a salt bath, took a nap and did feel better. I took the kids to the park to play with some friends and on the way home I was feeling worse and worse. It was terrible. I went to bed at 7 and slept til the next morning and knew i needed to see the dr....
- Poor Matt is swamped with work and can't help out much and when he is off of work, the kids are wild and the house is a disaster. I physically couldn't do anything and felt so bad! Moms can't get sick!!
