The Week

Wow - it's been a week if I've not blogged since Saturday.

Sunday, Jared rode in to chapel with Rodney. I stayed home with sick and contagious children.

Monday was BEAUTIFUL. I went to hang a load of laundry and HAD to go to the beach. I came inside, grabbed the three youngers and we headed for Momoishi Beach or Kaikinkoen. I reasoned that good weather doesn't last long...we'd be on the beach and it's unlikely the kids would contaminate anyone. They needed to get out of the house.

They appreciated the respite from quarantine at home!

Play Pooh Shells (like Pooh Sticks with clam shells)

The kids collected various shells to bring home and compare with their science notebooks....This is a clam that Windy and kids found. They'd had the same idea during their early morning lessons. It was too nice a day to stay home.

The farmers are flooding the fields...

Japanese Farmers have to be some of the hardest working folks I've seen. Rain, snow....

You can't see all the women in the fields too....but I'll find a way to discreetly snap some shots.

Tuesday, I woke with the crud. We headed to the Doctor. Officially it's more scrubbing, washing, puking, fevers, sore throats, goopy eyes...NASTY stuff.  I went to bed. Friends brought food.  I stayed in bed.
Wednesday, I stayed in bed...did some school with the youngers.
Today, I got up, baked for the retreat, made a birthday cake for Arielle and took the youngers shopping for Arielle's birthday. She'll turn 13 on Sunday.
Now, I'm going back to bed. LOL Thank you for the continued prayers. I know that this weekend is going to be good. I know that. Praying through to the finish line. ::grin::
We'll leave tomorrow morning to go set up for the retreat. First session Friday night at 7:00 pm our time....Sessions Saturday morning.....and evening. Home Sunday. 

Choosing Joy!
