Fevers, Snow, Parent-Teacher Conferences

From a couple of posts ago you read that Eliana got a fever on Sunday night.  It ended up that she had it until Wednesday.  Fever and sleeping a lot and no other problems (except an elbow recovering from 12 hours of dislocation!).  As of last night, Josiah, 4, has the fever.  He had a good night sleeping.  Now the fever is low (99.1 down from 102.5 last night).  He doesn't even feel sick, but he looks a little puny and he is curled up in a ball on the couch...

We got a new dowsing of snow this week - the big heavy flake kind.  Our long driveway had my husband struggling.  He prayed for a better solution.  That afternoon he came home from shopping to find our new neighbor stuck in the snow with his 4-wheeler.  Dh got back in the Suburban and headed over to offer assistance.  His thanks?  The man came over with his 4-wheeler and blade and dug out our driveway... How's that for answered prayer?

I met with the girls' teachers this week.  Things seem to be going well enough.  Jaedyn still struggles with keeping on task.  Ciara still struggles with loneliness and not having friends and with frustrations doing her science.  Elly is still a delight to her teacher.  I'm pleased to find out that Elly is in the middle of her reading group.  She started out behind the class having joined in midway through the program they started last year...  My prayer is that we will find a way to help Jaedyn be successful and keep focused and stay on task.

I was happy to hear from a few of my missionary friends.  It is a blessing to hear of their successes and to know they are still out there serving the best they can.

Our computer crashed this week.  We've lost all our pictures since 2005 and our complete contact list...  I'm hoping that we can figure out how to get it back...

On the spiritual side of things, I've been reading about how gentiles fit into the Bible and trying to figure out my identity.  It is good.

I am very sorry to hear you have had to deal with sickness, too. That is awesome about the driveway getting plowed. Glad you've had a good discussion with the teachers too. Sounds like things are going well.

Sorry about the illnesses, that is never fun. And it's always nice to have good reports from teachers, glad the kids are doing well. Hope everyone is 100% soon. :)

We have had that illness here has seemed a long winter this year. Praying for yu and your family.
I love it when you get an answer to prayer right away! That is awesome.
Glad to hear you have a good relationship with the kids teachers. Can you believe the year is half over?!
Praying for the retrieval of your photos...I do not know how to fix it but I know we lost all of ours once and dh was able to get them back. It was a long process.Some files are still hidden and "missing".
Are you reading a specific book on gentiles in the bible? I have always wanted to know the correct answer to that.
Blessings Tina

Briana used to run high fevers (103) with no other symptoms. I think it's their immune systems working.

I so hope you get your pictures back! Be sure to save them all to disks or to an online storing site. We're behind on getting that done ourselves!
