Sorry for the blogging break but Natalia was only the start of the flu bug in our house. Everyone but the three oldest got it. I managed to get thrown up on in the middle of the night once by Katerina too. Sigh. Oh well. Everyone is well now and we've had some great family time. On Tuesday we went to visit another large (larger then us) family and we all had a great time. The kids got to play with another family that understands that kids are not a curse, but that sometimes people like kids! And us adults got to enjoy some good quality adult conversations. And we learned to play a new game called Pit. It was alot of fun and we are enjoyed the time together. Then Wednesday we were given tickets to the local minor league hockey team's game. This too was a blast! The kids got a lot of Jumbo Trom time in the begining and the person running it even poked fun at Russell as he tried to take a pic of himself on the jumbo trom. The team ended up winning in the overtime shootout so that was quite an experience. I love having these times with my family and it's wonderful when God provides a way for our large family to have a night out like this and it doesn't cost much.
