We got the virus. That first of the school year cold. The whole, entire family. All nine of us.
It's a chorus of coughing, hacking, sneezing, and nose blowing.
Not exactly the Von Trapp family singers.

Children are coughing all night long. Really. All night.
Not one child. Or two. Last night, there were at least five children that were coughing. One of them has a fantastic gag reflex. He ended up sleeping on a blanket thrown over his mattress.
Three different times. He wanted to get into bed with me.
Um, no. I had my own coughing fit.
I desperately hope that we are over the nasty part by tomorrow. We are at school all. day. long.
Just, ugh.

Hoping and praying for a healthier, more positive post later this week!
