No pictures for the update this week. The camera, like most other things in our house, is somewhere in a box. Heather and I continue to chip away at the stacks of boxes, and by the time her family comes in town on Saturday, we should have the house in some semblance of order.

There are occasional road bumps to the unpacking process, Last week Heather, Hudson, and Sara Beth all had a throwup virus. Hudson had it first, then he passed it on to Heather and Sara Beth. One evening, Heather was exhausted from fighting the disease so she went to bed early. Around 12:30am, I hear Sara Beth throwing up. I tell Heather that I got it, so she can get some rest. I go and put Sara Beth in the bath, change the sheets on her bed, then place her back into a fresh bed. Right as I finish tucking her in, I hear Hudson throw up. I go over and start cleaning him up, and before I even put him in the bath, I hear Sara Beth throw up again. At that point, I reluctantly get Heather to help me. Sara Beth threw up once every half hour till around 5am, but she got it all in the trash can.

On Sunday, the kids were healthy so I took them out for a walk around the neighborhood. Two doors down from us, some kids were playing around the house. Sara Beth went up and asked to join them. Apparently it was a 3 year old's birthday party, and all the older brothers and sisters were outside playing. Sara Beth had a wonderful time playing some sort of game involving plastic swords and scooters with the neighbor kids.

Hudson sprouted two more teeth, bringing the count up to 8. I'm pretty sure that there are a couple more ready to come through at any moment as he is still drooling and chewing on anything he can get his mouth around.

So, that is pretty much what has been going on here. Heather says that she knows where the camera is, so we should have some pictures for the next update.
