Second Week of School

The second week of kindergarten started off with colds. Yep, we made it one week.  Will’s nose started running some on Monday and he was sneezing some.  Lindy seemed fine on Monday.

They woke up Tuesday and Lindy was definitely congested but I sent them on to school.  On the way Lindy was saying she didn’t feel good.  They never called from school so I assumed they ended up being fine.  Drew picked them up though and said both of them were dragging and neither felt very well.  We got them to bed really early Tuesday night and were just going to see how it went on Wednesday morning.

We woke them up and checked for fevers.  No one had one so we had them go on down to breakfast and they both perked up a lot.  We decided we’d try school so we got them dressed and headed out the door.  Drew said they were both much better when he picked them up Wednesday afternoon.  They have felt fine ever since.  They do have snot and with snot comes drainage for Lindy.  Thursday night she went to bed and started coughing and of course she ended up throwing up.  What’s new?  It’s actually good because she can clear a little of the drainage out of her system when she does it.  She slept the rest of the night thankfully.  

Friday I picked them up from school and we ran a couple errands and they talked me into frozen yogurt for a treat.  I dropped the kids off at home and then headed to my mothers of multiples consignment sale.  I was there most of the evening shopping and talking. 

Saturday morning we planned to sleep in but Lindy was up coughing at 5:50am.  I was so mad!  We had a lazy morning and then GrandBob and Suzette stopped by to visit.  We ate lunch with them and then they headed out and we headed out to pick up my stuff that didn’t sell.

We left there and headed to Mooresville because as of Thursday, my parents are North Carolina residents.  They packed their belongings in Ohio on Wednesday and rolled into our fine state on Thursday.  They are staying at a lake front rental house while their house is being built so we headed over to check it out.  It’s right at an hour from us.  We checked out the rental and then we went to get the kids some life jackets and had dinner and then we headed home. 

Will was fine the entire way home and right up until we were saying their prayers and for the first time he said his tummy hurt.  He says that all the time so I didn’t think much about it.  He got up in bed and kind of grimaced so I asked if he was okay.  He said I might want to stay and watch him.  I gave him the throw up bucket and told him I was going to change my clothes.  I came back and he was almost asleep but a second after I walked in he sat up and grabbed the bucket and threw up three big times.  Yuck.  We got him down from his bed and into ours and he kept clutching his belly and saying it hurt really bad.  I’ve never seen him do anything like that.  It’s like waves of pain would hit him.  He ended up having to go poop as well and at that point I figured we were in for a long night.  He fell asleep and I never heard from him again.  He was fine the rest of the night.  He felt fine when he woke up this morning.  So strange.  Something must not have settled right with him.

Today has been a busy day. We had church and then we had a little pot luck after church for the kids.  The kids then helped sort school supplies for all the teachers in our congregation.  We had to leave a bit early because we headed to a birthday party at Chuck-E-Cheese for a boy that was in Lindy’s class last year.  It was fun to see all the old preschool gang who we love.  Lindy and Will had fun playing the games.  As with everything else – the good times had to stop – and they stopped indeed when Lindy threw up.  Shocker.  I wouldn’t let her eat the pizza since she’d just eaten lunch but I let them have cake.  I saw the look on her face and knew what was happening.  I got her away from the main table and over to a side table, thankfully with a plate she could throw up on.  Never a dull moment, I tell ya.  Of course she is fine immediately after throwing up so we went back to playing.  The tokens were multiplying I swear.  They would not go away!  We finally got out of there and both kids fell asleep on the way home. 

We are gearing up for week three of school.  It’s going to be an early bedtime for everyone in this house!

I only have pictures from today.  DSC_4325DSC_4326This was the slowest tea cup in the world but apparently Lindy liked it!DSC_4327DSC_4328DSC_4331DSC_4335DSC_4336DSC_4337DSC_4338Anyone else have a child obsessed with American Ninja Warrior?  Here is his most recent obstacle he has built.  He loves this show!DSC_4339DSC_4340

Sounds about like here - three weeks of school and we've seen more throw up than we have in the last year! And we've moved bedtime to 6:30 pm. Crazy, but it's best for them and great for us to get some quiet time alone at night. :)
