This morning Isabel’s friend Morgan came over. While they were playing, Luke played his 45 minutes of Gamecube. After Morgan left I noticed my kids were a little sluggish. Just thinking they were being lazy and not wanting to do school I forced them to do a Christmas art project (painting decorations on a construction paper Christmas Tree) while I lit the candle and read them The Tale of Three Trees by Angela Elwell Hunt. The only kid into it was Sylvia who literally got into it. Paint all over her hands body and face. Luke then went to take a nap while Isabel lay on the couch. That is when took their temperatures and realized they really are sick. I gave them medicine and put the cartoon Bambi on for Isabel and Ryan. Luke is still sleeping. Poor kids, their teacher doesn’t even let them have a sick day.
