Yesterday, after being home from school for two days, BJ woke up and exclaimed, "I Feel Great!"
Granted, he had seemed to be improving throughout Tuesday, and his appetite was back for dinner on Tuesday evening. But I have a feeling that his declaration also had something to do with the fact that yesterday was his final field trip of the year, and he really didn't want to miss out.
It was a special field trip, the invitation to which included the entire family. So of course BB wanted to go too. They were headed over to a local park which has a really neat water play feature. Of course the high for the day was predicted in the 60s, with rain possible. It Was Chilly.
Not that this kept most of the kids from having a good time and insisting on getting wet... here's BB with some of the kinder girls, having a great time as she leads the way down the slide.
Thankfully, BJ didn't seem all that interested in the water play. (Good thing, because I would have been very tempted to nix it in favor of good health.) He was happy to run around in the playground areas, all bundled up. Made for kind of a funny juxtaposition when his sister came over to say hello:
And even though he stayed warm and dry, I have a suspicion that he picked up something yesterday, because at 5 AM today he had a fever of 101 degrees. Luckily none of the vomiting and yuckiness that accompanied things earlier in the week, but he stayed home again today.
Here's hoping we're all healthy again very soon!
