    Can someone help me translate this message?

    Как дела? Я надеюсь, ты получила моё предыдущее письмо? У нас, наконец, началась зима, уже неделю лежит снег и морозы. Сейчас немного потеплело. Извини, что редко пишу, мало времени. Дети вторую неделю болеют, не ходят в школу. Сначала у Вадика была температура 39.5, кашель, горло болело, потом у Илюши. У нас на Украине сейчас какой-то вирус. Закрыто много школ на карантин. Виталик Ларисы тоже болеет.

    How's deeds? (How are you?) I hope you'v received my previous letter. The winter has started here at last, there is a frost and a snow laying around about a week since. But now it's slightly warmed up. Sorry for my rare letters, I have a little time (for that). The children are sick since the last week and don't go to school. At first, Vadik has got a temperature 39,5, a cough and a throatache, then Ilyusha has too. We have some virus now here, in Ukraine. Many schools are closed on quarantine. Larisa's Vitalik is sick too.


    Rather sad letter, if you ask me.
    Please, correct my mistakes, except for the cases I misspell something on purpose!

    How are you? I hope you received my previous letter. The winter has finally started here, there is _ frost and _ snow laying around about for a week now. But now it's slightly warmer. Sorry for my infrequent letters, I have a little time. The children are sick for already the second week and don't go to school. At first, Vadik had a temperature of 39.5, a cough and a soar throat, then Ilyusha got it too. We have some kind of virus now in Ukraine. Many schools are closed on quarantine.

    Извини, что редко пишу,
    Sorry for my infrequent letters,
    Not to nit pick but wouldn't that be more closely translated as

    I think "they aren't going to school" is better than "they don't go to school". The latter sounds like they never go to school.

    You can say "a frost".

    Just attemt of literally translation "Как дела". But I'v done a mistake. I should have written something like: "How are deeds (going)?"
