Kings of the Castle

Gary, Kai and I all have a virus of some sort. Congestion deep in the chest that is just not fun. You would think that if you were sick you would sleep in, but no, Kai was up by 5:30am. I'm so tired. That's two days in a row of early wake ups. The advantage is that I get in a workout or I work for 2 hours before Koen is up. The disadvantage is that I rarely fall asleep before 1am so I am TIRED. Trying to remember how precious and cute my kids are, but today, they are exhausting me and it seems like they are purposely tearing the house apart. Praying that Kokies doesn't get it...then it will really be a test of patience around here.

{I didn't purposely do a side mohawk...his hair just does whatever it wants:)}
{And, you know how I was looking for a tent for the basement? Found one at Costco for under $25.00! Awesome.}

Gary coached his first basketball game of the season this morning so I wonder how it went! Let the craziness begin...
Love, Louise

PS I had a whole post about where we are likely sending Kai to school but it was boring. Answer: Christian School. Reasons: Part time (M, W, Fri...this was the biggest attraction), more resources/time spent on electives, smaller classes, great community (parents I talked to said they LOVED it). We'll try it and see how it goes. I think the school here would be great if it wasn't so overpopulated. It is 1.5 years old and is full of portables and they are starting an addition in January. Crazy hey? I also went to Christian school from K-12 and I loved it. Maybe everyone loves school? Maybe I would've loved the public school too? Who knows. That's the scoop.


  1. kids love tents, eh? Glad you made a decision re: school that you are comfortable with. Part time is a huge plus! Hope you all feel better soon!

  2. hope the congestion leaves before Koen gets it!
    i think we have made the same school decision :) yay part time!!!! :)

  3. No Louise, not everyone loved school.

    My dear wife's experience of school and mine could not be much different. She tells me about it and it sounds like a wholesome television sitcom from the 50s (then again, so does her childhood?). She remembers her school years fondly. The only similarity is that we both gained good lifelong friends from those years.

    Unfortunately, not everyone enjoys his/her school experience. I'm pretty sure that little Kaiser will though.

    I look forward to seeing you at the school next fall:) We have the congestion too, sounds like rattles in their chests. Hope you all feel better soon, enjoy some Christmas baking, chocolate might help;)

  5. Hope you feel better soon and have a good night's sleep.

  6. Nope, not everybody loved school! :) And when you posted about the public/private school debate, I told Tyler, "Maybe I should just tell her that in the end, she is going to choose private? It would make it easier on her!". I decided to let you figure it out - and you did ;). Yup, I certainly did love school. Sometimes, I wish I could go back to those good ole' days....
