Our long & disgusting weekend

(This picture has nothing to do with this post. I just thought it was cute!

I was praying that Connor had just eaten something that didn't agree with him. That nothing would pass to the kids or to Ben and I. Oh I was wrong. So very wrong.

Friday afternoon we headed off to go camping. Connor had stopped throwing up by this point, so we let him come on a trial run. If he threw up we would take him straight home. He didn't. We enjoyed a fun night. The kids running around like crazy, cooking over a fire, camp fire songs, smores and a night hike to find frogs and hermit crabs.

My biggest concern was being too hot and yes, I got way too hot. I was miserable in fact. I crept home early in the morning to take a shower and had to try really hard not to climb in bed and sleep!

Saturday morning Ben cleaned up the camp site while I walked around with my wolves, attending their different stations. It was hot outside and both Harmony and Ben had started saying that they didn't feel well. We got home, unloaded the car and that was about it. The throwing up had begun.

A little later our friends dropped Ivan off. He had been home maybe 30 minutes, when he too started. It was awful. So awful. Ethan and Connor and I were the only ones feeling well so we hurried to rent some movies,and pick up lots and lots of gatorade.

Sunday morning around 3am, it was mine and Ethan's turn. What fun.

I started to feel fine and so went to bed nice and early. I was so worn out that I didn't realize Ivan was sleeping in my bed with me!! But then he woke up at 3 this morning.

Lots of fun let me tell you. I am just praying that it is over. Knock on wood!

Sorry the sickness passed to all of you! I am assuming you all are feeling better now. It's always so hard to know if anything is really up with children, you know!?
