bad winter

We really had a bad winter this year. My kids and my husband been sick for couple days now. Sometimes they get better but the illness still keep coming back. We took my son to the doctor couple weeks ago because of his sinus and now they been struggling for fever, throwing up and diarrhea. I heard that this illness is all over the Valley and there are a lot of people got sick this winter. I’m just thankful that they didn’t pass their illness to me, I just hope that I wont get those illness. That throwing up, fever and diarrhea are awful. Its not fun at all, I don’t want to see them sick so hope that this illness will go away that way my son get go back to school and my husband can go back to work.

My two boys are sick

Its not nice to see your kids get sick but this time, my two boys are both sick. My 7 year old son and my husband. I'm glad my 3 year old daughter is fine. We took my son to the doctor yesterday and found out that he has a sinus and a little bit of ear infection. The doctor gave him an antibiotic for him to take for about 10days. So we keep him in the house yesterday and today. I called the teacher this morning for him to be excuse at their class because of his condition. Hopefully he will feel better tomorrow. If he don't have any reaction for his antibiotic tomorrow, we might send him to school. Well, it depends on how he fell. My husband also been coughing all night and he feels really tired and sleepy so hopefully he will also feel better tomorrow so that he can go back to work. Today, we just had our relaxing family day, we play sorry game card and just watching videos on youtube. I also done with my an hour workout and now I am thinking what to cook for dinner, we might have a simple dinner tonight. Hmmmm how about a soup? That will be a good one especially when there's someone sick in the house.

learning school - abcmouse

Yesterday, I decided to cancel Dana’s learning school online at time4learning because she lost interest in it. She don’t want to spend time with it at all so that’s what I did yesterday, cancel it and apply a new learning school online that she likes the most and that is the When I told her that she need to start again her learning school online and showed her the website, you can see the look in her eyes, she is very excited, she is eager to learn and she wanted to explore more in the website.
Starting yesterday, she finished until lesson 4 and today she finish until lesson 8 of level 1. That was pretty good in her age and she learns so fast, she figures it out right away and guess what? She likes to taking care of her little hamster name snowy and all the fishes in her aquarium. That’s kind a interesting that they include aquarium and hamster on that website and also the prizes and tickets they get whenever they finished every lessons. So far we’re happy with the new learning school for my 3 year old daughter and as long she’s happy, we will stick with it then.

household projects

Have you ever used spring clamps before? I am sure you do! Well, we have spring clamps in my husband tool box and I saw him using it when we do a house project in our old house in Grand Junction. Before we moved here in the Valley, I remember that I help him fix the kitchen wall and make additional room in the kitchen backroom. That was 2 years ago though. But whenever we had a household project going on, my husband have all the tools we need. His ready for everything, he shop in advance or look online to find the one he need. That’s why we don’t need to hire professional people if we know that we can do it by ourselves. If its hard to do it of course we look for a professional help.

Bye bye diaper...

I can tell that my 3 year old daughter is ready for a big girl underwear now. She don’t want to wear diaper anymore so it means, she needs to say bye bye to her training pants and say hello to a big girl underwear. So far she did pretty good this past couple weeks and even when she go to sleep at night, she is wearing her big girl underwear and she never had any accidents at night at all. She did pretty good! She can hold her pee until morning when she wakes up. I didn’t force her to do it though but it takes a while before she figures it out. So potty train is done and I am so happy that she did it. She is such a big girl now. She grow so fast and next month on February 26th, she will be turning 4. What a girl ;-)

custom swing sets

Winter here in San Luis Valley is way colder than in Grand Junction. This past couple days, the temperature drops down to 0 degrees and it even reach to -20 in the morning and at night. Hopefully It wont be like this for the whole winter. Well, I can’t wait for Spring and Summer. Why? Because we had a lot of things to do in the backyard. Work in our garden, buy the kids a swing set, that way the kids can have their own playground in the backyard, invite more kids to play with my little ones and more to mention. Talking about swing sets, I found a custom swing sets richmond va online and they look really nice. I am sure the kids will really enjoy if we get them this kind of swing sets this Spring time.

butterfly facepaint

Made this cute pink butterfly face paint to Dana couple days ago. She look herself at the mirror right away after I painter her face and she really love it! She also showed it to some of her friends in the afternoon when we had our get together party. It was nice :-)
