It's been a week since I blogged for a couple reasons. One, I liked signing on to my blog and seeing our Ragnar pictures. Click here to see them again!
More, though, it has been a week since I blogged because we've been sick. Specifically, first Lilly was sick. Then Zac. Then Zac and Lilly. Then Zac was more sick than Lilly but I thought Lilly was more sick then Zac. Then me. Then Lilly, because she wants to be just like me. Now Jer.
Whew! What a week!
Let's slow it down a bit...
Sunday evening, after Ragnar, I noticed Lilly was coughing quite a bit. Interesting. We went to bed and she was up a bit of the night coughing. I promised myself I would give her her nebulizer in the morning.
Monday morning, I tried to get her up and she was a wreck - exhausted, fever, cough, the whole thing. Thankfully, my mom was able to take off work at the last minute, so I took Lilly to her and took Zac to school, and off I went to work.
That afternoon, I heard that Lilly was feeling better but when I picked up Zac I heard that he had been miserable all day! Sheesh!
Jeremy had Tuesday off, so I made appointments for the doctor for both kids. Jer took them and reported back - no ear infections, just bad colds. Keep doing what we're doing. Check.
Wednesday morning I had the kids loaded up in the car and Lilly was just miserable, so I decided to be a good mom/bad teacher and take the day off with her. Still took Zac to school so I could baby her all day. This is when we decided powdered sugar donuts really help.
Zac came home from school feeling fine - a runny nose and grumpy in the evening, but grumpy evenings are normal for him!
By Wednesday evening, Lilly was still miserable and coughing and fever... so I called in for Thursday.
Thursday was more of the same, for both kids.
Friday, I took Zac to school and Rob was able to stay with Lilly in the morning until Jeremy got home from work around noon.
I had doctor's appointments already scheduled for both kids for Friday afternoon - Lilly's was her 3 year well baby (do they still call it baby?) check up and Zac for his second dose of H1N1.
Come to find out, year 3 is where they start wearing paper "dresses" and stand up for height/weight... all the "big kid" stuff.
Ok, moving right along... while I was out of the classroom this week, my students created this book cover for Love Of Reading week. They were supposed to pretend a book was being written about their class, and create the cover. I was happily surprised to see that they did it even though I wasn't there, and it turned out cute!
1000 Ways To Annoy Your Teacher
By: The 7th Grade Bozos.
I love that each kid is illustrated and identified by name.
I love that I am there, tied up and being carried away by a couple of kids.
I love that they called themselves Bozo's... which I may or may not call them in class. A lot.
I LOVE that they won the school Book Cover Contest. Yeah, I'm a little competitive.
