It has been an interesting week with the kids since Mimi and Pa are gallivanting around PA.
Today, I took the kids to Aunt Leah's house for the day. At least I thought.
This morning, Brooks woke up fussy. He does this sometimes, and I was hoping that it was from our late night at church. Anyway, Scott helped me get the kids together and off we went. Kate was SO EXCITED to get to go to Hayes' house. When we got there, she was ecstatic and Brooks was devastated. He cried and cried when I left. In the back of my mind.... "I hope he is OK". Leah said she wouldn't call unless he was inconsolable.
Well, she called at 11:00 am and he was running a good fever. Bingo. Luckily, Dr. Brooks didn't have any appts scheduled for herself this afternoon, so I went there after lunch to get the kids. Kate was so happy - she had the best time. Brooks was pitiful.
So, I spent the rest of the day holding my little boy. I feel so bad for him - he was just sick and that lasted 2 weeks (cold and drainage) and now this. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that tomorrow will be a better day for him.
OK - so on another topic, I have been anxious to get some landscaping done around the outside of our home. Dr. Brooks loaned me the BEST book about landscaping - Southeast Home Landscaping. It basically shows you pictures, tells you if it is best for shade or sun, and then tells you exactly what to plant! It is so neat! I have been so excited to go to Lowes on Saturday (providing that Brooks is feeling better by then). If you are in need of landscaping ideas, you should check it out!
