Another Update

Hello everyone!  I wanted to let you all know how everyone is doing.  I came home yesterday.  The Bates clan seems to be on the mend.  A long way from better but on the mend.  Jess took Daniel to the doctor this morning.  He has a lot of congestion and a double ear infection.   Also please pray for our friends, the Horns.  As of right now, 3 out of 5 of them have the flu and one has strep throat with the flu.   I know many blogs I read have had this bug going through them.  It is horrible.

Today we are working on school and other normal things.  The girls and Hubby kept things running smoothly here while I was away.  I did come back up Sunday morning and went to church.  You all remember, Sunday was the girls big day of playing music.  They did a great job.  I hope to get a copy of the CD this weekend.  If I can figure out how to put it on, I’ll try to share some of it with you all.

Well, that’s about it.  Lunch break is over and time for us to start back on school.  Thanks again for your prayers.  God bless.

Our First Fire

Okay, so it finally got cold enough to build a fire.  The temperature inside the house was 61 and I decided we really did need a fire.  This stove may look small but it is a real workhorse.  It heats our old farmhouse, keeps us toasty warm.  We do use the gas logs some when it gets really cold but most of the heat comes from this little stove.  It even keeps the upstairs warm.  We are very blessed to have it.  A few years back,  Hubby and I traded some electrical work for this stove.  I think we made a good bargain. 

We had to make a run down to Jessica’s today.  She has been sick over the weekend with strep and thought the boys might be getting it too.  Praise the Lord, Daniel just has an ear infection, which is bad but not as bad as strep.  Sam seemed to be okay, just congested.   We had a good visit anyway and she made some awesome chicken noodle soup for lunch.

Well, I think I will relax and enjoy the coziness of our fire.  Enjoy your evening and God bless.
