The Saddest Boys in the Whole World...

... are looking longingly out the window at "playable" snow and then running to separate bathrooms to throw up at the same time.

Very, very sad.

2pm update...

The sickness seems to come and go.  All seem fine for the moment.  Had chicken broth and noodles for lunch, read to them while watching for the mail man, and now - with the latest Netflix arrival in hand - they're watching Monsters vs. Aliens, and I have a short break.

The snow, sadly, is melting.  But I remind them that where we live we can drive to snow any day of the year.  Gunnar has decided that's what he wants to do for his 10th birthday, in June.

Alrighty, then.

Awwww, I am sad for them too. They've waited so long for playable snow. I hope and pray they're feeling better really soon and that your snow sticks around for a bit!

Blessings!

Oh no! Hope everyone gets to feeling better soon and that mom gets a break from it too! It's not easy tending to one sick child, much less three.

PS - I don't know if you saw my comment back on my blog, but I was laughing loud at your comment - never even realized his "Opposites Flip Book" was in that order. Too funny! and good eye!

How miserable!! It's one thing to be sick, but quite another to be sick when there's something going on that you REALLY want to do.

As for snow in June...wow! That seems like such an impossibility.

Ah... seems impossible, but it's high. We can drive up to over 5000' elevation. Snow all year.

In fact, one of the years I worked at a nearby ski area, we were open until the first weekend in May. MAY!

Still... being sick is a big bummer.

Ugh. It's no fun missing the playable snow.
