Abe and I woke up completely felled by our sickness. We have never skipped church as a family before, but today that decision felt medically necessary. We spent most of the day just trying to get better.
Abe was more energetic than I was, and I expect tomorrow the girls will call me “Daddy” for half the day. If I have been particularly absent on any given weekend, then the girls get used to putting forth all of their petitions to Daddy. It takes them about half a day to realize they can call for Mama and actually get a response.
Abe worked with Lydia for an hour today on reading and writing.
