Poor Timmy

Sunday night wasn't a very good night. Timmy woke up at about 11:00 with non stop coughing. He'd not been feeling very well and he was just getting worse. He was scaring me a little bit so I decided I had better take him in to ER. When we got there they immediately made him put on a mask and got us right in. After we was swabbed for the swine flu and had chest x-rays (which took about 3 hrs), we found out that he had pneumonia, 2 ear infections, and pink eye. Poor Timmy. That is a lot of sickness for a little boy to have all at one time. Let's hope he feels better soon.

The Great Pumpkin Farm

This weekend we decided to go to the Great Pumpkin farm to let the kids ride the rides (that were way overpriced) and see the animals. They loved riding the carnival rides and their favorite ride was the the tilt o whirl. My stomach hurt so bad from laughing while they were riding that ride. Every time they came around they had a different look on their faces, like: joy, terror, nausea, dizziness...it was hilarious. Then we got to see all kinds of different animals but they really loved the tiny goats because they would eat out of their hands. We went to McDonalds for dinner and as we were getting out of the car, Timmy announced that "Today is the best day EVER!!" I love how doing fun things with the family can excite them so much as make them so happy.

Maura's First Field Trip

Maura had her first field trip on Monday and I was able to go with her. Maura was so excited that she got to ride the bus. We went to a little farm that let her us pick apples, choose a pumpkin, and feed the animals. I beat the bus back to school after the field trip. I watched Maura groggily get off the bus. The teachers were giggling and said that all of the girls fell asleep on the way home and had to be woken up to get off the bus. Despite being worn out, Maura had a really good time. It was fun to spend the day with her.

Feeding the animals...she adored all of the animals and wasn't a bit nervous to feed and pet them.
