Sick kiddies

Yep, we have sick kiddies at our house. This is not the same ones from last week, but a new bunch. This time, it's our 8, 10, and 11 year olds. Same symptoms-fever, very sore throat, just a general feeling yucky. They spent the day lying around, sleeping, reading, resting. It hurt to swallow any food, so I did a run to the store and picked up some nice cold ice cream for them. Of course, all the non sick ones had to have it, too! Fortunately, it only lasts 2 or 3 days and then they seem to be on the mend. Tonight after dinner, our 5 and 4 yo fell asleep on Dad's chair. Surprisingly, they're not among the sick ones, just tired! Here they were, snoozing away!

A little while later, a slight change. Notice brother's arm?

I thought it was so sweet-like he was comforting her. Definitely a cute moment. And it definitely overshadows the incident later on in the evening when he pushed her because "she was in my way." Ahhhh...siblings.
At this point, I think we only have 2 that haven't gotten sick yet, so likely this illness will be moving on soon. As long as Mom and Dad don't get it, I think we're okay.
