Sick Day...

Ben woke up last night with croup and an asthma attack, but he was able to calm down enough so we could get some meds in him so we didn't have to go to the ER! Took a sick day from school so he could go to the doctor, but he is already feeling much better! He got a mask at the doctor's office and decided to perform surgery on Captain America when we got home!

After another long dreary week, it was nice to see a little sunshine today. We have had a great week despite the constant clouds. As Ben keeps reminding me, they are summer boys!!! Looking forward to a nice weekend at home!

No School!

No School! After running a couple errands, Ben and Conner have decided to be turtles today! They also wanted to watch the BFG movie today so I snapped a picture of them as they were staring at the tv!
