About half of the kids are still sick. ugh. Jake's ear hurt over the weekend so I took him to the doctor. Result: double ear infection. Poor kid.
Just when SaraGrace and Kate seemed better, they both started running fevers again. Sigh... They just can't kick it. Whatever the virus is, it is going on and on. Poor babies.
Sorry I didn't report back on Ryan's PT run last week. He did not pass it. However, the sargaent didn't say anything, so Ryan is unsure what to think. He does know that he cannot graduate from this phase of training until he passes the PT.
Yesterday while making dinner, the kids came running in yelling with excitement. "Snake! Snake! There's a snake in our playhouse!" Ewwww...
I grabbed my camera and ran to check it out. I saw the kids like this:
Sure enough...there was a garter snake. It couldn't get out of the playhouse and kept slithering back and forth. We were all strangely fascinated. Finally the call rang out to get the teenager to come and catch it for us. He reluctantly complied but insisted on wearing gloves to avoid being peed on. Whatever...,just come and catch it!
Some were brave enough to touch it. It was twisting and turning quickly, which was a bit unnerving.
