Field Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

The kids' preschool went on a fun field trip to the pumpkin patch and I was lucky enough to get to go. I was still feeling under the weather, but it was a beautiful fall day and the kids were super excited to go. How could I not ignore the fact that I had no voice and my head felt like a bowling ball? The kids got to take a hayride out to the pumpkin patch and pick out a pumpkin, climb hay mountains, do a hay maze, check out animals in the barn, ride some carnival rides, and enjoy cookies and juice. What a fun morning!

Why do I always get sick on my days off?

The last few days of summer are quickly fading into fall around these parts. No more 80 degrees. 70's are a happy surprise. I LOVE the autumn, but it always means more runny noses. more sore throats. MORE GERMS! Yes, the kids and I are all sick. Shoulda known this was coming when Callie told me a kid in her class got sent home with "A pink eye" but I it's okay because "he has a blue eye too"...

The kids got to stay home from school today to rest and catch up on some sleep. They were really upset about that. Uh huh. Sure.

It's been a week of hot chocolate, tea, movies, book reading, board games, soups, snuggies, and popsicles around here. The perfect prescription for a cold.

Callie's 4 Year Old Check Up

Ms. Callie visited one of her least favorite places recently for her 4 year old check up. For some reason girlfriend hates going to the doctor. I don't know where the fear comes from but she just hates it. She could be puking her guts out and will look you straight in the eye and say "I'm not sick!" just so she won't have to go to the doctor.

Waiting for the Doc

My little lady was totally healthy. 50th percentile for height, 20th for weight. She is due for her pneumonia shot sometime before winter so didn't get any shots today. We will wait until Daddy can come and hold her hand. Instead we got stickers and suckers. :)
