Sick Days

L has been home sick for the past 3 days.  She actually felt better after the first couple of hours on Tuesday, but continued to have fever (and then Pink Eye), so it hasn't been terrible hanging with her this week.  We played board games, and snuggled on the couch watching endless episodes of "Magic School Bus."  We worked on the instrument that she was supposed to fashion for Music Class at School.

Yesterday we piled 12 garbage bags of leaves into the van, so today I worked on mulching them.  L asked to play in them a bit before they were all mulched.

Last night, J brought home homework for her sister, which caused tears and yelling.  I DO NOT miss those moments from Cyber School!  The same thing happened tonight, but escalated to the point that L, being angry at her sister, threw a rock, which hit (and BROKE) a window.  I did not freak out, but the first thing out of my mouth was that she will lose her allowance for an entire year!  (Interestingly, that was one of the first things JP said as well!)

Tomorrow I head back to work, and L is going back to school.  Hopefully we can keep rolling right into the Holiday Season!
