I love this season! Love having our Christmas decorations out and seeing homes lit up with Christmas lights. Love getting cards from friends and loved ones in the mail, watching Christmas movies and spending time with MyHero and our kids.
Unfortunately, this is also the season for colds! It seems that there has been an epidemic of colds in our area and we haven't been spared. My kids have all seem to have come down with the creeping crud. RoboBoy sounds terrible with a croupy sounding cough and Fashionista isn't sounding much better.
When they are sick like this, it makes it very difficult to get them to do school work. I can understand that. When I'm sick, I don't want to do much of anything either. This might be a good time to relax and watch educational videos together or have them do some math games.

Fighting the Creeping Crud
Dee Trope married her hero (John) in 1993. They homeschool 3 teenagers, Manboy (98), Fashionista (00) and RoboBoy (01). RoboBoy and Dee both have Aspergers Syndrome, also known as High Functioning Autism. Dee is a Jesus Freak who loves to crochet and write. She is also a runner. She runs about 3 miles 3 times a week and has participated in numerous 5K races. Her goal is to increase her distance to 10k and eventually be able to run a half marathon. Dee considers herself to be a “geek in training”. As an Aspie, Dee is generally happy to stay home, but loves keeping in touch with her friends via Facebook and Instant Messaging.
You might find her on Facebook (her favorite social media), G+, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, or even Youtube! She keeps a personal blog in which she shares from her quiet times. You can find it at http://dee-lightfullmoments.
