We caught the Germs

Flu
Monday, January 30, 2012
Day 246

The nasty flu but that has been going around hit our house. I suppose it was inevitable. Schools are one big giant petri dish.

Zoey stayed home from school today.




Run Adam, Run!

Day 247

Today was the first Running Club multi-school race. Zoey has been sick so she was not able to participate. But Adam did! The race was a mile and a half long and he ran the whole time!

Here he is approaching the finish line.



And this is him enjoying a popsicle afterwards while holding his number. He finished 149. And this was with 4 schools there and racing along side all the other grade levels. I don't know for sure how many runners there were total but we were super proud of his 149!



Plants galore

Day 248

Finally been getting around to potting all the plants we bought on Saturday. I really love the way live plants makes my house feel!







Hibiscus

Day 249

I know I've been showing a lot of plant pictures but after getting my hibiscus potted yesterday several blooms appeared overnight and I was just so excited I had to take a picture!




I stink at getting actual food to grow but am having a very good time trying to figure out how to get flowers to grow.


Playground blues

Day 250

The playground at the school has wood chips for padding. And kid shoes are the perfect receptilce of transporting wood chips. Which means I always have wood chips in my house.



The worst part is the way they hide in the carpet just waiting for you to walk across it barefoot. Ouch!

Fountain Hills

Day 251

Have had sick kids in the house all week! Zoey was home sick Monday-Wednesday and Adam was home sick Wednesday-Friday and so we needed to get them OUT of the house. Took a drive to Fountain Hills.

Here is our family picture watching the fountain.



And just so you can really appreciate how high this fountain goes, here is one of the kids in front of it.










And my kids rarely ask me to take their picture-I think because I do it so often. But they saw this tree today and actually asked if they could take a picture by it. So of course I had to oblige.




Technical Difficulties

Day 252

Had a special multi-ward meeting for church today because they were realigning some ward boundaries. So they had projectors set up for those of us sitting in the back. But I just can't understand why the people running audio visual at these kind of meetings never seem to know what they are doing.




I snapped this quick pic to show how the display settings were turned on the entire time for all of us to see. What you don't see in this picture is that the red battery warning was blinking right in the middle of the picture the ENTIRE meeting. (my pic just  happened to take right as it blinked off.)

Also at one point the camera started cycling through the demo mode showing a simulation of all the camera settings. Very distracting I must say. Next time find somebody who actually knows how to use the camera.

adam is so cute in his glasses!
i can't believe they have wood chips down there instead of the recycled rubber playgrounds. maybe the recycled rubber still gets too hot down there? they are the nicest playgrounds to play on though!

The plants look fantasic! Hopefully the sick kids are all feeling better now! And I love that fountain!
