I woke up feeling just as crappy, so I stayed home from church. The cold is making its way through our family, so I was not alone at home. Noah, Zoe, Zach, and Kate stayed home as well. I wondered if I would get any rest, but somehow I did. The kids watched church movies and Zach and Kate played pretty well together. I was planning on putting Kate down for a nap, but she climbed into my lap and fell asleep before I had the chance. I enjoyed holding her until Noah wanted to eat and be held. I tried laying Kate down on my bed, but she woke up. I was really hoping that she would get a good nap in, but she didn't.
I am tired of Noah waking up with his eyes "glued" shut, and one of Zoe's eyes needed to be washed out before she could open it this morning.
I am glad that Matt was able to teach my lesson on such short notice today. I knew he would do a great job and my mom assures me that he did. We were supposed to come over to my parents' home after church, but since most of us were sick, my mom sent home the chicken and rice soup, rolls, and brownies. Yummy!, and perfect for our sick family. The rest of our day dragged on. It ended with the kids playing in their room, singing at the top of their lungs and practicing a show to put on for Matt and I. Not the most reverent day, but we survived.
Noah stood on his own for a second this evening when he let go of the chair!
