It’s hard to believe that February is already here! I feel like January sort of flew by for us. It was all sorts of random / crazy / and unorganized.. but we survived!
It’s been so hard for me to get into a good groove this past month. We were fresh off of Christmas break and heading back to work, then we finally had some snow and they cancelled school, and then one-by-one we each came down with a cold. Shelby and I are still sort of feeling the effects from ours.
I feel like the flu is running crazy this year. There was one day this week where 4 kids in Kate’s classroom alone were out sick. Her teacher sent us a message that it had hit their hallway pretty hard. I feel like I don’t even want to send my kids to school right now. Every morning we coach them on washing their hands and not touching things and staying away from kids who may be coughing, etc. All the while we are crossing our fingers that they are actually listening to what we tell them and we pump them full of fluids and vitamins when they get home in the evenings. I cannot wait for this season to be over.
We did have some really nice things come out of January this year. We were able to share the happy news that we are expanding our family, and we found out that our new baby is a girl.
I’m having a really slow start of it, but I’m excited for this new year. I hope to feel a little more motivated and organized and productive in February. The momentum is a little lacking over here right now! I blame the lack of sleep caused by this ongoing cold…
