Interesting day at church

Today was a very exciting day because it was Ella's first day of nursery. I have been COUNTING down the days until today because for months it has been very difficult to keep her happy AND listen to the lessons in Sunday school and Relief Society.
So we take both Henry and Ella to nursery, but before we get too far, one of the nursery leaders asks us to stay and help because they're short-handed. Although we were SO very excited to enjoy our lessons ALL BY OURSELVES we decided to stay and help (well, Adam stayed for just Sunday school because he taught the lesson in Elder's Quorum).
We stayed in with the younger half of the nursery kids and that was sure interesting! We've never been in nursery before and my goodness! Lots of kids and lots of stuff going on. I now sing praises to the nursery workers and leaders - they sure have a huge ordeal going on there. There were probably about 20 kids where we were and they said that there were a lot missing. Not to mention that there are about 3 or 4 other classes with the older kids!
So then just before the end of church, I was out in the hall with a very sad little boy who cried a little less when we were in the hall. Then all of a sudden one of the teachers runs out of a room and says "Henry just threw up!" I hand off the kid I was holding and I go in there and sure enough, throw up EVERYWHERE. And poor little Jonie - she was sitting so quietly and patiently on the floor with throw up all over her dress. It was stinky and yucky - and I was the mom! The poor people who weren't his mom...
He must have a bug because he's thrown up a few times since we've been home.
And listen to this - Jonie (the little girl he threw up on) brought a can of chicken noodle soup and a card that read: To Henry, love, Jonie. Feel Better! Jonie says "It's okay you threw up on my dress. I can have my mom wash it."
So cute! Thanks Jonie, Jessica, and Josh! That was really thoughtful.
So yeah - that was our fun day at church. :) Usually it isn't so eventful...

Matt has thrown up anything he has eaten or drank all day. Even 1-2 sips of water. Hope it passes for both of us soon!

Oh, poor little Henry and poor little Jonie! It was really sweet that she brought the soup over to him. It's always so mortifying to have your kid get someone else sick.
I hope he is feeling ever so much better today.

Poor Henry, poor Little Jonie and Poor you!
Throw up is almost the yuckiest thing to have to deal with, and when you're not in your own home it's so much worse.
And, it spreads so easily! Glad he's better.
Love you,
