Hiking and conference - April 3 - April 9

6:10 AM

Thursday night we went on a fun hike and took some cute pictures. Hiking is a great way for us to get out of the house but avoid being around too many people.

Friday was all work and jumping on the trampoline and movies. We are getting into a more steady daily routine and I'm very grateful.

Saturday and Sunday = CONFERENCE. We started the day with pancakes and homemade syrup that turned out incredible, if I do say so myself. We set up the big Mac monitor (thanks Dad!) to watch conference and Graham wanted to sit down and listen to the singing which melted my heart. The choir started singing "He is risen..." and Graham GASPS and turns to me and says JESUS. I just about started crying right there. It was so precious and sweet. Conference was absolutely beautiful. It wasn't always easy to listen with a crazy toddler not wanting to sit still, but I just felt so happy and at peace. It's been so easy to feel anxious and scared but the messages were all about peace and hope and that's what God brings.

Sunday we made muffins and watched more conference and then made delicious stroganoff since we couldn't be with my family. It was a great, relaxed, calm day. Saturday night Graham started to have a fever. Sunday he had a fever all day which was no fun. We texted the doctor who told us if it wasn't gone by Tuesday we should probably go get him tested for flu and COVID. That made my mama heart pretty anxious.

Monday Graham's fever wasn't quite gone, but he had no other symptoms. We had a lazy day in the house watching lots of movies since he wasn't feeling great. Thankfully by evening his fever broke and we texted our doctor, who confirmed it was probably a viral infection and that he is OK! Thank heavens!

Tuesday we took another hike and got LOST. It was a littles stressful for a while not knowing quite how to get back to our car. Luckily we got onto the mountain face and could see the area where our car was, and at least could have gotten to the highway and walked down there if we needed to hahaha. We still had fun and vowed to go back and get on the right trail sometime soon! We got a little HEART ATTACK on our front door from my family which was so fun because we haven't been able to hang out with them.

Wednesday was busy with our landlord installing a brand new sink for us! It's DEEP and amazing and I'm so excited! Randy has been going to teach Zoom classes for his gym students and it's nice for him to get out for a bit. They are very safe and clean to ensure nobody gets sick by going to teach the kids over video, which I'm grateful for.

Thursday: We'll probably go on another hike today, play with new crafts, I'll shop for Graham's birthday presents online and we'll get through another day of this coronavirus craziness.
