Jeremy had talked to Grandma, and Everett was asleep and hadn't been sick anymore, so we headed home. We had been driving for just a little bit when mom texted me to see if I had looked at facebook lately. I pulled it up and it seemed like the entire 4th grade had been hit with the stomach virus. I was going to let the kids sleep in and check into school late on Thursday morning, but a few hours later I learned that there were over 400 kids out of Muscle Shoals city schools, and 278 of them were at McBride, which is Jackson's school. Needless to say I was not about to send my kids in to catch the sickness, so we all stayed home Thursday. Everett was a little clingy all day, but no fever. That afternoon they ended up letting schools out early and cancelled it altogether on Friday so they could disinfect and fog the schools. None of us have had it yet, so we are crossing our fingers that we dodged it. School will be open as usual tomorrow morning, so hopefully it has passed.
Luckily this weekend has been beautiful, so the kids have been outside for most of it. I got out of the house yesterday to plunder around an antique/thrift shop and found the perfect dining room table and chairs. Of course, you have to picture it painted and with the cushions recovered, but I fell in love with the style of it. Now I just have to talk Jeremy into it. For some unknown reason, every time we start a new house he suddenly becomes an interior designer! Here's the table. Don't laugh. Just picture it a creamy yellow with tan legs and tan chairs, all distressed, with a fabulous fabric on the seat cushions. We shall see if I get to bring it home.
This is where we are on the new house.
Yes, that is our old house in the background. We are building right next door to it. Hopefully our new neighbors won't mind ☺. Plumbing should come in Monday and the slab should be poured Tuesday. So, moving right along with all this gorgeous weather.
We have another busy week this week, but when is it not busy with us? We close our house sale/construction loans tomorrow morning, framing should start on Wednesday, Mia's has a party to attend, and Parker has Grandparents Day at school Friday. These are just extras added to the usual homework, dance, wrestling, etc. God's so good and I thank Him everyday for all these "busy" blessings!
