Benjamin in his exersaucer

Miriam with Spunkles

The good news is that I am over my viral gastritis.  This morning I woke up feeling GREAT!  Oh that was fantastic!  And just in time, too, as we now have 9 children with strep throat.  Not like there's much of a difference between 7 and 9 with it, though.  lol  It's nutty, but the entire family is taking antibiotics right now to kill it for good this round.  You might be wondering which one child is healthy - Sarah is the winner.  Of course, she had it last month, so it's not like she escaped entirely.

Between taking care of sick children, Aaron and I have also been working on planting outside.  We paused in planting our garden to work on planting fruit bushes.  So far today we've planted goumi (also spelled gumi) bushes and honeyberry bushes.  Next up are the currants, gooseberries, jostaberries, and elderberries.  I'm so excited about getting these planted!  :-)  In a couple of years we'll be eating huge amounts of fresh berries plus making delicious jellies and pies.

Sorry that there haven't been many pictures lately.  Hope you enjoy these two.  :-)  

Love, Dawn
