Sick again

My baby is sick again. GI bug and an ear infection.
2 days off of school.
She feels better today. She's up playing baseball on the wii now. Yep, can definately send her back to school tomorrow.

This was at the dr. office yesterday afternoon.

April has been a busy month

Easter was great! I love knowing exactly what I work on Sundays so that Easter can be planned out perfectly. And this year, the weather was beautiful. We live in Missouri. The weather is always wacky in MO. And always cold and/or rainy on Easter. But this year, it was in the 70's and no rain. The ground was dry and the kids were in summer clothes. The egg hunt was perfect.

The pollen around here is horrendous. It's been so dry, and no rain for 2 weeks, that the pollen is looming in the air like crazy. And Orin seems to be more allergic than all of us combined.
Poor kid.

The last couple of days have been much better though because we finally got some heavy rain. The rain helped pull that pollen down out of the air. I didn't even have to give him his medicine yesterday and he slept without the cold mist vaporizer on. Hope it continues like this. I hate seeing him so miserable.

Morgan has learned to ride her bike without training wheels. We bought her a new bike for her birthday in December, but she hasn't been able to ride it yet, because the seat is a little too high on it's lowest setting. Chad is gonna use his dremmel to saw of maybe a 1/4 to a 1/2 inch of the post so that she can sit on the seat and still reach the ground.
So we've had her new bike stored away since December. I decided the other day to take the training wheels off of her old bike so that she can practice riding without them on a bike that she can definately reach the ground on. She's way too big for this bike, but it was helpful to her for learning to ride.
Chad helped her start out in the yard. He only held on for about 10 seconds, and then she was doing it on her own. About an hour later, she was walking her bike up the hill and riding it back down. She never crashed once.

Can't believe it's April already!

Where did the last 3 months go? They just flew by!

So, Orin can write his name now. This is the first time he's even tried, or shown interest in writing anything.
He is also sounding out words and can read a lot of 3 letter words.

Tuesday I took the kids for a walk. We ended up walking the entire mile and a half trail, round trip. 3 miles of walking with two crazy kids. We all had a great time.
