Chicken Pox!

IMG_3674Can you imagine four little bundles with chicken pox at the same time?  Yikes!  About ten of my little pumpkins have had it in the last two weeks, and about 30 in the whole center. 

IMG_3669IMG_3671Other than keeping a close eye on our immuno-compromised kids, I think it’s best for them all to get it and get it over with!    They all seem to go up and down throughout the day, sometimes feeling normal and five minutes later crying and wanting to lay down and two hours later running around again.  About ten minutes after the strong-man competition above, Junior on the left, was laying on the couch, a little teary, and fell quickly off to sleep.

They’re isolated in the dorm so we stayed home from church tonight and watched a movie. Cutie pies!

Although I’ve been quite light-hearted in this post, some of the boys have been quite sick from it, and some have quite painful sores.  How hard is it to keep putting on the healing cream when they are crying and pushing your hands away?  So please say a prayer for us that the pox passes quickly and painlessly and without any complications!
