Yesterday I was getting ready for Memorial Day weekend.
These little munchkins stole my flag.
These little munchkins have had a rough week.
Bobby has had a rough week with his allergies and I kept him home from school on Monday because he was miserable. On Tuesday he woke up with poison ivy covering the better half of the left side of his body. I had him pulling weeds in the backyard over the weekend.
Now I feel bad.
I didn’t know I had poison ivy in the backyard.
I am assuming it is poison ivy because that is what the school nurse said it probably was.
Probably. She said probably. I sure hope she’s right and it’s not some flesh eating bacteria. That would suck because we are going into a holiday weekend and the doctor won’t be back in until Tuesday.
By Tuesday all his flesh will be gone.
Maybe I should call the doctor today.
Gracie wiped out riding her scooter on Sunday when we were walking the dogs.
She was wearing flip flops while riding her scooter and one fell off.
It was a nasty wipe out.
She had be carried home, which was a little more than a mile.
She cried the whole way home.
She cried for 2 days after that too, until the road rash scabbed over.
I felt bad for not realizing she had flip flops on.
She has promised that she will never wear flip flops again while riding her scooter.
So if I can fit my kids back together again we are going to enjoy this nice long holiday weekend doing various activities that honor those who have served our country and sacrificed their lives for our freedom, and hopefully regroup for next week’s adventures.
How about you? What are your plans for Memorial Day?
