Winter of 2012 or Great is Thy Faithfulness

This has been a very interesting winter for us.  I have been very silent on my blog except for reviews because I just have not had the time/energy to come up with blog posts.  About mid-February my husband and 5 of my children came down with influenza.  Two of the children also developed pneumonia and then my husband got pneumonia and ended up in the hospital for 4 days.  Then a couple more kids got sick.  Amazingly, I never got sick.  It was a surprise to me because I tend to be very susceptible to the flu and I've had it several times.  We had 6 straight weeks with someone in our house being sick with coughing and a fever.  During that time, I found out that I was pregnant too.  Our celebration was short lived though as I miscarried a couple of weeks later.  We have also since had a few children with a stomach bug.  It has been a long 2 months!

Even through it all I was reminded that God is faithful.  He was faithful to give us peace and comfort...faithful to provide friends to bring food and encouragement and prayer.

So, right now everyone is healthy.  I am very caught up on reviews and we are getting ready to wrap up this school year and start planning for next year.  I want to get back to blogging regularly and sharing more of what we are doing around here.



This week my husband is on vacation and yesterday we visited the aquarium.  Here are a few pictures.  It is unseasonably warm and wonderful.  It was a great time.
