The kiddos have been pretty sick this weekend, with really high fevers and chest congestion. It’s always alarming when my busy kids just want to lay on the couch and sleep. Annabel finally seems to be on the mend, but poor little James is just miserable today. It’s always hard when they’re little and don’t really understand what’s happening. We’re giving him lots of cuddles and fluids with the hope his fever breaks soon.

100th Day of School

~Annabel’s 100th day of school was last week, and she had two different “100 things” projects to bring in. The kindergarten classes got together and had a big party where they made capes, hats, and puppets. I helped out and the kids were adorable – they were so excited that it was the 100th day of school. I was pretty perplexed, though…when did this become a “thing?”
