Smorgasbord Sunday

A perfectly healthy fall & winter   +   family coming to visit     =    Murphy's Law

Saturday morning was spent with four kids at the pediatrician's office then being sent home with 5 Rx's and a nebulizer.

Just in time for our guests...

He was the sickest with acute bronchitis!

Thank goodness we had 72 hours to let the antibiotics kick in before our family arrives.

Around my house...

David started planting our square foot garden.

I had him hang our Texas Star outside.

(It use to hang in the hallway above a bench in the foyer area until we moved the piano there.)

Remember the ice storm pictures from the feast of St. Nicholas?  And my tree that had half of it shared off?

Here it is leafing out in spring.

(Poor, little Charlie Brown tree!)

Miss Clementine's swing stays empty these days.  She doesn't like to be in it that much anymore.  She's growing up :(

Enjoying some quiet time outside with a glass of beer.  I was too lazy to make a margarita. (For shame!)

Spring cleaning...downstairs.

Spring Break Week #2!!!

My favorite part about home schooling is being in control of our own school calendar.  

I was going to take off for Holy Week, but when family said they were coming to visit, we switched things around.  

David's sister & niece, Sara & Alison, fly in on Tuesday and will stay with us till Saturday.  We are SO excited to have family visiting.  (That's a RARE treat for us.)  It has been over two years since family has come to visit us.

I plan on signing off of blogosphere for the week....hope you all have a great week, beautiful weather, and happy thoughts of spring!!

  10. Hi Patty! I hope you have a wonderful visit! My daughter and her little girls just left today, it was so much fun. And I hope that your family gets over their illnesses soon. Poor kids. How well I remember the nebulizer. I had a foster child with bad asthma.
