At least we get to see a good movie.

Some sort of illness is flowing through the children. It starts with a temperature, lack of appetite and then that ill look in their eyes. Eric was first on Wednesday night and he was better by Friday and all looked well. Then Peter had it on Saturday and Clare on Saturday night, James and Rose yesterday and today, and now Ariel is hot and miserable.

When ill, the children get to wear sleeping gear all day, not do any schoolwork and either play games (like Monopoly or Life) or watch a movie or two.

Yesterday we watched Anne of Green Gables - The Sequel which is a four hour movie. This is a great movie and has inspired Ariel to go back and read the books. We had listened to the first Anne of Green Gables audio book, but now the rest of the series beckons.
