Quick Hello!

Saturday, March 21, 2009

We have been having a pretty good Spring Break despite the fact that Kate has been quite sick (I know, again, still!).  In the past month, she has been sick with various illnesses 4-5 times.  She has been on 2 different antibiotics and contracted viruses on top of them.  She was back at the doctor this morning and they took blood and urine samples.  Please keep her in your prayers.

The boys had a Judo tournament this morning and they both earned 1st place in their weight divisions.  I am very proud of their determination.  In fact, one of our peanuts is ranked 2nd in the whole state in his weight and age class!



Sorry for the poor photos the light/distance in the dojos is awful and I do not have the proper equipment;)


  1. Congrats to your boys and I'll be praying for Kate

  2. Kim, Sorry Kate has been sick. My girls has been so sick this week. We have been to the peditrician twice and a almost trip to the ER. What ever this virus is were on day 7, Hope the rest of your pnuts doesn't get it. Its hard to shake.


  3. Way to go peanuts! Glad to have you back :)

  5. Great job, boys! Praying for sweet Kate. Why is it that kids seem to always get sick during a vacation?!

  7. SO happy to have the peanuts back! Congrats to the boys- I must say they both are the most handsome in their groups too!! Hope Miss Kate feels better soon, it's tough when little kiddos get one sickness after the next, I always feel like their little immune systems are overworked!


  8. Congratulations and way-to-go Harry and Will!! Glad you all are having a great spring break, even though Kate has been sick. I hope she feels better soon.

    Hope the rest of your weekend is great!


    P.S. The first year we had Ava home she was sick all the time. We got her on a food based nutritional product called Juice Plus (organic and very healthy). I believe in the product so much I became a distributor...because it has made a huge difference for Ava, and Jake takes it too).

  14. Hi Kim,
    Sorry to hear Kate has been ill, hope it clears up soon.
    Has your blog been locked recently? For the past week or so when i visited it said it was only open to invited readers?
    If you do decide to go private in the future, unless its just for close friends and family, do you think I could be an invited reader? I love reading your blog and would be sad to miss it!
