I had written 3 paragraphs on what we've been doing, a witty antidote on something silly Stella did & what's going on the next few weeks. Then it disappeared. So for now this is all you get. We are off to a puppet show and I don't feel like retyping. I'll be back soon. We have field trips all summer with our library group. Last Friday was Zachs' farm. Well, not his but his families. Here's the pics. :)

2 weeks ago we were are library group and someone told me one of the kids wasn't coming because they were sick. Lo and behold they came straggling in. I heard the Mom "didn't think he was contagious". If your not sure err on the side of caution people! This isn't a Prom it's a freaking library group. Just stay home. A little bit later I look over and my unsuspecting daughter was playing with the little virus monster and he was hacking this deep cough right into her face. I thought to myself right as it was happening, "uh oh, I hope she doesn't get sick".
Three days later we were in the trenches. 2 weeks, 3 Dr visits, 2 Adeno Viruses, 1 double ear infection, 1 nasty case of pink eye and a UTI later we are on the mend. Stella didn't get more then an hours sleep for 7 days. She would wake up saying, "It hurts", or coughing nonstop. Her fever was up and down to 104 for 6 days. On day 7 she turned the corner. Day 8 Mommy got it. Ugh. Day 12 Mommy went to the Dr and even though it was a virus and there was nothing she could do begged the Dr to give her something to help sleep. Nasty little virus that was. Normally you get a bug and maybe a few days are spent in bed this was a full week where you felt so bad you didn't want to move but could sleep because of the body aches, head aches and incessant coughing. So not only for the kid your sick kid is getting sick but their parents also...please stay home if you are sick. Thanks. Much appreciated.
Needless, to say not much picture taking going on around here lately. The week before we got sick we went to the beach....that's all I got. Sorry.
