School Spirit, Sickness & 100 Days Smarter!

Last week was basketball homecoming so the kids got to dress up to celebrate!

Monday was MLK Jr. Day, so there was no school, so they did not dress up that day.

Tuesday was hat day at Noahs school and PJ day at Ryans school - she insisted on wearing her Elsa hat also :)

Wednesday was hat day at Ryans school and Favorite Sports Team day at Noahs school Ryan wore her Minnie mouse hat and Noah loves the Razorbacks and the Panthers - but this Indians jersey was too cute not to wear :) He made a cute Wild Thing!

Thursday was Favorite Cartoon Character day at both kids schools. We had a little ninja turtle and Batman!

I could tell something was off with Noah when I picked him up from school Thursday. He just looked tired. He said his belly hurt a little, but nothing too bad. So, we did homework, got pizza for dinner (which he didn't want to eat - another sign of something being off) and got ready for his basketball game. I took his temperature and it was only 93 degrees (which is also not good). We went to his game and he was obviously not feeling well - he just looked pale and said his belly was hurting. Once the game was over he was begging for popcorn and said he felt better - so we got him some popcorn and headed home. I asked him about his belly several times on the way home and he was fine. Then, once we get home and he opens the door to get out of the car he got sick :( At least he waited until we got home - but I told him he owed me for cleaning up popcorn puke out of the window, door handle and window button of my car - ahhhhh the mom life! Thankfully, that made him feel a lot better and he did not get sick anymore!

When my kids get sick, I found it best to quarantine them until 24 hours after their symptoms are gone. It has really helped keep our entire house from all catching every bug that one of us gets. The kids usually get bored after a while and require a new movie or book to make it the whole 24 hours - which is a small price to pay in my opinion! So, I stayed home with Noah on Friday to make sure he didn't spread it to his class and Ryans daycare has a 48 hour symptom policy on the entire household, meaning she stayed home with us too. Ryan woke up with a terrible runny nose that day - so it was just a sick day all around.

Saturday Noah had another basketball game. He was just having a bad day. He said he wanted to get the ball from the other team, but couldn't, so that upset him. He was emotional and just not having fun like he normally does. Then Ryan was complaining of her ear hurting, and she was still snotty. So, after the game Nathan took Noah home and I took Ryan to the walk-in clinic. She had her first ear infection in a year :( So, we got medicine and went home. The kids played the rest of the day relaxed. Nathan and I were talking about how Rivertowne BBQ sounded good, so we jumped up and loaded the kids and took off.

Poor sick Ryan!
Sunday we went to church. Ryan has always very easily gagged when she cries, especially with a runny nose. It is a guarantee it will happen most times. So, when Nathan went to get her from her class she had gotten elbowed in the nose during a game and was crying, so of course, she then vomited all down the hallway and bathroom and all over Nathan. I am sure people thought it was a stomach bug since Noah had one 3 days prior - but thankfully it wasn't. So, we had to make a wardrobe change and scrub up before lunch. We have some pretty tough stomachs as parents :)

Monday was the 100th day of school! Noah was excited to go back and celebrate. He was supposed to take 100 items of some kind for show and tell. He chose 100 legos. I wrote a little thing for him to say during show and tell about how the little legos represent the little things he learned, and the big legos represent the big things he learned and when you put them together you can make or do anything! The kids also get to walk through a big 100 in the hallway - it was such a fun day for him :)

Since the kids didn't get to dress up on red/white/black day for homecoming last week I let them do it on Monday - now our homecoming memories are complete!

Now, we are hoping for a healthier week, then a nice little getaway for momma and daddy this weekend to visit our racing friends again while the kids make memories with their grandmas :)
