Strep Throat

Yep! Rachel has Strep! This is not a good week to be sick! Yesterday afternoon she came down with a fever and slept most of the rest of the day. About 4am, she woke up crying that her throat hurt. Abby had a DR. appt this morning anyway so I just took Rachel with me too. She looked so pitiful this morning with her droopy eyes and dragging body. We have antibiotics and are on the road to revcovery. I pray no one else gets it!
She was so disappointed about not being able to go to VBS last night. Kevin stayed home with Rach and Abby and I went to church to man the Pre-K group - they seemed to be really pumped up last night! We have been picking up Kane and Gabriel for VBS, so our van is full. When Zach and Jord found out that there would be empty seats they started inviting neighbors and we ended up taking one extra.
VBS week is great because your kids end up singing the songs all week, quoting Bible points and verses, and inviting friends to come with them. I love to see the kids so excited about the Lord. Wouldn't it be great if we as adults could be so excited about the power of Jesus in our lives that we would sing about His greatness, quote scripture and invite others to know Him everyday!
It's so easy to get distracted from sharing His love with others.
That's something we could always work on around here!
