Fighting a bug and learning to pedal

Should these two subjects be in the same post? Probably not but I need to balance the good and the bad.

The bad:

We have really been struck down again with some nasty bug. I was first. Marc is still fighting it and now Ethan is the new victim. He was really quiet all day and did not want to eat much at all. During dinner he got this weird look on his face and he made a funny noise and I told Marc...here he goes; he is gonna vomit and then wammo..he did! As he is doing it Marc says...that's interesting. I am like what?!? Never heard it described as that before. I find it anything but interesting. Dinner promptly ended for everyone at that point...eeew!

BTW, guess what dinner was? Chef Boyardee Spaghetti and meatballs. I was cleaning out my closet and going through the hurricane supplies and found a family size can that was almost to expiration. I don't think any of us want to eat the rest of it....would you?

On to the good:

Here are two videos of Katie mastering the art of pedaling her tricycle. Now of course steering and pedaling is another matter...

I love me some Katie video.

sorry you are all sickly. Between the commentary about the dinner table and the dogs doing their bum sniffing I have to say this is a most unusual post....he he he.

Uh. "Interesting" is definitely not the word I would have used. Personally, I think I'd go with "gross." Poor Ethan!

Don't you just love watching when the children learn a new skill? I find it so exciting.

Katie Starr is doing really well on her bicycle!
