With kindergarten comes....

Ready for school.... before we found out the fever was back.... boo!

The germs! 
Poor Ivy has missed the past 3 days of school after coming home with a fever on Tuesday afternoon.  I really thought it might have been a fluke because she was really acting fine.   However, I knew it was more than that when she woke up in the middle of the night: headache, sore throat, and a fever.  Daddy and I have been an outstanding team this week.  He stayed home Wednesday and took Ivy to the doctor only to find out it was just a yucky fever virus.  Then Thursday it was my turn- we had a good day of movie watching, hair fixing, and couch cuddling.  Her fever was absent almost the whole day, even at bed time.  So today she was excited (after a pep talk that it is okay to miss school!) to go back to kindergarten.  She woke up, got dressed, and was eating her breakfast- and then I looked at those eyes.  Do your kids get those fever eyes?  Thankfully, I checked and sure enough her fever was back full force this morning.  Daddy stayed home this morning because I had no time to get sub plans together at 7:10 but I came home at lunch so he could make a 1:00 meeting.  I was thankful that we were a team in tackling our first sick child of the school year!

We are nursing our girl back to full health and hopeful that a restful weekend is just what she needs to get back into the swing of things on Monday.   For now we are praying that this virus doesn't hit anyone else..... especially our little tight rope walker!  We are going to the circus this weekend to make sweet memories. (Thanks to Tula's awesome birthday present from Nana and Pops!)  And for an awesome event like that we need everyone to be in tip top shape!

Tula has always loved animals and after having circus week at school she is always practicing her tight rope walking skills! 
Animal loving + adventure seeking = A little girl who will love the circus!


  1. Poor thing! I'm sure she hated to miss. Here's hoping she's on the road to recovery. It only took 2 days of daycare for Sawyer to come home with green pouring out of his nose! Kids germs are quite resilient, aren't they?!

  2. Hope Miss Ivy gets to feeling 100% better soon! I cant wait to hear about the circus, how much fun : )


Thanks for your encouragement as I travel through this season of life called mommyhood!
