Mother's day was pretty low key around here. Alex wasn't feeling well, so we stayed in. We did make one trip to the grocery store for supplies so Gabe could cook dinner.

Monday Alex was having trouble swallowing so we went to the pediatrician. He has tonsillitis. He seems to be doing better, but that just might be the ibuprofen doing a great job.

Alex and I have just been hanging out at home. I did go to Bible study yesterday. Since he has been napping a couple of times a day I finished the book I am Nujood, Age 10 and Divorced. Nujood lives in Yemen where the minimum age to marry is not always upheld. Hence, she was married off at the age of 10 and divorced shortly thereafter. Her husband was three times her age. The books talks about girls as young as seven being married off to men that are thirty-five. This book is a quick read and I recommend it. It really makes you wonder how things like this can still be happening and why people are turning their heads when it does.


I'm sorry to hear that he's not feeling well. Does he get to eat lots of Jello and ice cream? hee hee

Thanks! He did eat a lot of jello, ice cream, and pudding! He is actually doing much better now.
