This week started out with the potential of being an awesome week.
-Monday night was book club- which I love. We read Escape about a woman who escaped from the FLDS in Colorado City. It was a page turner- but oh so sad. It was so crazy thinking that all of this stuff was happening in America in our day. I think people have a right to believe what they want but not to the point of this book. It was abuse right and left. I think that one of the scariest parts of this book was that these people are so secluded and so they have little contact with the outside world and they are not taught about the outside world or encouraged to question their religion. I think everyone no matter what religion they are should know why they believe what they believe. We actually talked about this book at book club which was fun!
- Tuesday was enrichment. I actually went and even though I ended up in the nursery for a lot of it. It was nice seeing everyone.
I was busy and getting out and then Garret got sick and then Spencer too. Not just a runny nose. We had throw-up (I can not handle this smell) and fevers. Then I got sick. I felt so wiped out (and still do) but I still have to take care of the kiddos. We got tickets to see "The Drowsy Chaperone" (thanks Cathy) so even though I was sick- I went. Who would pass up a good musical?! I loved it. It was so funny and the songs were cute and it was at Shea's which is so beautiful (it was built back in the day when every detail was important) and we went with our friends Glenn and Christy.
Here is a picture of Tyler and I before the play (not only do I look like a ghost- you can totally see my Spencer hairs- that's what I call the hair that fell out after Spencer and is now growing in- does anyone else have this problem? I hate it- I even tried to hide them and some of them still stuck out)
We are all gradually getting better. I can not believe how often we have gotten sick this winter. I don't know if it is because Tyler is in dental school and when people are sick in dental school they still go (because there is little choice) or if it is because Garret is in nursery now. Either way I am not a fan.
Here are pictures of Garret and Spencer when they were about the same age- both so cute!
