Long days

Well its been a long time since I've last posted and a lot has happened since then. On Tuesday of this week it started with Philip having a terrible earache! The earache was so bad that he was crying and literally screaming it hurt so bad. So we had all been praying since it started which was after dinner, and then he finally fell asleep. When he woke up it was completely gone! God is so good! Then Wednesday came and I was at youth group and I (Alesha) started having troubles with my neck but it wasn't bad enough that I told my dad about it because I thought it was just a little stiff or something. And then when we got home, Anna had an earache. So she was crying and we were all praying and everyone eventually got some rest. I also decided that it would be a good idea to put a heating pad on my neck so help with the stiffness. Then came Thursday, this was the hardest day for me out of the whole week! I woke up and I couldn't move my all! So as I sat up I also realized my terrible headache and I felt sick to my stomach and it hurt incredibly to swallow. So it was a long day I tried to take a bath and read some of my History but that didn't help any so I just went to bed. I woke up and I still was feeling awful. So then I just decided that I would have to suck it up and make myself feel better (great idea Alesha, what was I thinking?) I also had to babysit that evening... 3 boys 5, 3, and 1. Yep, I was a genius! NOT! Well I babysat the boys from 6 to 10 at night and they had loads of energy! By the end of the night I was grateful that I hadn't thrown up because I felt like I needed too. But I got home and went straight to bed. Oh, and Caleb threw up on Thursday night. Then I woke up on Friday and I could move my neck but it was still a little stiff but definitely better. Also dad and Caleb left for Des Moines because he had to go to his classes for ISOM. So then I got up on Saturday and I was much better still a little stiff and hurts to move if I turn it too far but God is faithful! Dad and Caleb got home and Emily, Anna and I had worked really hard to clean up the laundry room and make it a surprise for dad. And I think we did a great job! We definitely caught dad off guard! :) So that has been our week. Unfortunately we didn't get any pics of it all but here are some random pics that were either from last week, or sometime. haha :)

This was from last week. Yes, we love ravioli...
especially Xavier! haha ;)

This was from today. Olivia was so cute after breakfast
she got out the uno cards and set it up for everyone to play!

And then Philip wanted to help with
the great idea.

God is our refuge and strength, 
an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, thought the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
thought its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.
The Lord Almighty is with us; 
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
Psalm 46:1-3,7

Praise God!
