10 on 10::June

The past few days since our dog died have been an unpleasant blur.  Half the family came down with a nasty stomach bug, and the other half nibbled cautiously on crackers and waited.  I had planned to spend these last few days of school stocking up and organizing, but the best I've done is trips to the local quick stop to clear them out of ginger ale and chicken soup.  By this afternoon most everyone was feeling better, and we made a last ditch Target run for teacher gifts in which I crossed my fingers the whole time that no one would throw up.  I remembered the 10 on 10 at the last minute, and it gave me a nice distraction from the piles of laundry and dishes...and a chance to focus on those little things even in the difficult times.

Lovely photos, especially the last nite nite - so sweet.
Here's hoping you've seen the worst and everyone is feeling better now!

Oh, Brandi, what a mess. I'm not surprised that the family was susceptible to some illness after everyone had such a shock to the system with the sudden loss of your beloved dog. Thank oodles for ginger ale!

I like the little story your 10 on 10 tells. I especially like the pink slippers on the stairs with the Feeling Better caption. It's so true.

Will pray for you and your family today.
Stop by our blog and feast your eyes on some flower-power. :) :) Praise God for healing and Beauty!

That knitting project looks lovely; and the photograph of the clover field, captivating.

Ah, Brandi, the trials and tribulations of motherhood. Seems like you manage very well. Beautiful pictures. So sad to hear about your beloved pooch.

Glad the clan has recovered from their illnesses and is ready for summer fun.
