Tis the season for children's Tylenol, Pepto Bismol, cough drops and sleep. Our homeschool group was hit with a bad strain of flu. Yesterday, was a busy day for our family with lots of activities, a field trip to see The Nutcracker, a choir concert, and a midnight showing of The Hobbit. After returning home from ballet class, Allie started vomiting. Thirteen hours later the vomiting ended and the fever started. She's really miserable. Poor girl missed her karate class last night. We're hoping that she gets better this evening because the karate tournament is tomorrow morning. Steve has missed school this week due to sore throat and coughing. We're 11 days out from Christmas........right on schedule.
