We have a bout of sickness moving through our household this week. It started with our littlest girl and now 6 of our 9 children are afflicted… with daughter, age 10, showing signs this evening. Our littlest boy exhibited most dramatic symptoms this morning that landed him on the sick couch- where he has convalesced all day.

In the midst of some of the most intense moments toward noon-time today- I encountered what is featured in photo below. A face splitting grin stretched across my face.

I love this so much…(that would be a little hand sanitizer attached to his belt loop)

always prepared and ready to go! Getting ready to begin his Tuesday chores.

Love this kiddo so much. Those of you who know me well- know just how very apropos this is!
