What happened, October?

Sick and Cruzes...simply meant to be. The flu has finished raging through all of the rest of us except for Afton (whew! but not a lot of whew, because she had a nasty bout with croup instead). We were all good for about a day or two before Ben came home from school early wheezing like crazy and coughing a lung up...actually all of us except for Emma are currently coughing to one degree or another. This is looking to be a long and arduous winter. I'm sick of it (literally). In the face of all this wheezing, coughing, congestion etc, we've postponed our biking trip to the Virginia Creeper, are second guessing our commitment to the Race for the Cure, and have already missed or put off a variety of other fun events. Come on immune systems!! Get with it!!
Okay, I'm done now. Thank you for your patient listening.
The upside of the past few weeks is that Afton has started walking, just three or four timid steps at a time. Right about the same time she finally learned to put her hands together and so claps for herself when she does her new trick. It's super-cute.

What?! All our praying hasn't lifted you all out of the den of sickness? I'm so sorry. But glad you ended on the bright side of Afton's walking news. Please make a video of it and post! Please!

Bummer! Sorry to hear the news. Hopefully you are getting the worst of things over with early this season... ?

I suggest you cancel Christmas too. Better to not get the wee ones' hopes up. And ditto to what mom said. Video please!

Blah! I hate sick. HURRAY! You're almost done!!

I bet you'll be super healthy through the long winter months now and will be able to enjoy all the rest of the season. :)

YEAH!! for Afton. (She can't be old enough to be walking already though, can she??)

So, can I ask your opinion? Do you think the flu shot is worth it? Did you get it for your kids? I'm trying to decide. I'd rather not, but nobody wants a house full of sick. I hope you're all feeling better by now.
