Thanks to vitamin D and vitamin C, we did not get sick all winter until the end of February! (No one had been sick for over a year!!!) But, since late February we have been passing this cold from one child to another. Baby Josiah is not doing well at all. His nose is all stuffed up. And, I can easily praise God for our infant nose syringe... without which Baby could not breathe to eat! Two nights ago he slept very little, and I had to be awake with him until 4 am. Fortunately, God gave me the ability to get up in the morning with the other children regardless of my lack of sleep! (Though, I had to work very hard not to let the grumpy bug get me!) Paul has been sick with a cold/cough off and on since late February. I am still well. Each time my throat gets tender, I take additional vitamin C. And, the next morning I wake up feeling well. I do have enough energy to make it through the day with sick kids... but I do not have energy for a full day of school. We are doing only 2-3 subjects a day right now. I think once the weather warms, and the windows open, we be back to our normal routine. Until then, please pray for my sick family.
