poor, poor babies

the dreaded rotavirus has broken out across our little campus and kids are dropping like flies. this is the ideal place for a virus of any kind of to run completely unchecked, since this is the epitome of communal living. please lift up all the precious little ones that are feeling so sick, and all the mommies and daddies that are feeling so tired and impatient.

poor lucas has had diahrrea for a few days now. he isn't acting like he feels sick, which is great, but nobody likes an upset tummy. poor rachel pamela threw up before bed tonight, which is the first significant symptom of rotavirus. both babies are sleeping exhaustedly now, which is great. no school for rachel tomorrow. we'll most likely be headed towards a doctor's office (she's in for a rude awakening).

this is definitely not a fun place to have a sick child and so many of us here do. it makes it nearly impossible to learn all the things that are available for us to learn (and complete all the homework we're assigned!). being sicky is super icky.

oh no!! nothing like sickness to suck the joy out of a new experience. we'll be praying for you and all the other little babies to feel better soon!!
