Life has gone on for us. We are still dealing with the after-effects of our experience on Saturday. It’s been interesting to note the different reactions that we have all had. I have had feelings of guilt, my stomach has been going into knots, and I keep replaying the whole thing in my head (although less and less as each day passes by). Brynne felt abandoned by us and wondered if we were being punished. (I talked to her about this and I think she doesn’t feel that anymore) Marc never felt afraid and has shown no ill effects. Hugo is doing fine. His stress is more work-related. Aidan and Mikah seem to be handling it fine as well. I’m thankful that I took that de-briefing course a while back so I know that any reaction is a normal reaction. Whew…
Last week was the final game of the volleyball season. For this night we played parents/teachers vs the different high school teams. My JV girls team played pretty well but were beaten. It was a very fun evening of volleyball and Hugo and I played against the senior boys and girls teams. Last night we had a pizza party with the JV girls team at the local pizza joint to celebrate the end of the season.
Christiaan is still not well. Yesterday we decided to treat him for parasites and see if that helped. So far he is going to school but I’ve been picking him up at lunch time. Mostly it’s his head and stomach that have been feeling off. We’re past the 2 week point now…. He’s not the only one, there’s been a lot of sickness going around lately!
