Hiding Behind Your Little Sister

Mallory had a fantastic day at school yesterday and couldn't wait to go back today. She already made some new friends and talked all night long about how neat the teachers, kids and the school were. Ezie said maybe he would start back in September and the more Mallory talked the more you could see him getting excited. He wanted to know if people made fun of her or made her feel uncomfortable for being "the new kid". She said, "No, everyone was nice". So Ezie decided, now that Mallory has gone and survived, he wants to go back to school ASAP. He probably won't be able to start until Monday because the registrar is out today and Friday there is no school because of teachers meetings. He can't wait to meet some new kids. Jace will be lost with the kids gone all day and I will miss them a lot too, but I'm proud of their decision and the reasons they decided to go back.

On another note, my 19 month old grandson, Anthony got really sick the other night with croup. None of my kids every got croup and I can't believe how quick Anthony got sick and how sick he is. He has been running a 103 degree temp for the last 36 hours and he sounds terrible. They took him to the ER the first night and they rushed him back and gave him a shot of steroid's to help with his breathing. They ended up having to stay in the ER for 6 more hours to make sure he was breathing okay. He still doesn't feel good though. Poor baby!! Does anyone know anything about croup? How long does it last? Is it contagious? I can't believe none of my kids every had, but I'm glad they didn't!

Have a beautiful spring day!!

I am so glad your Daughter is loving school and making friends. Croup is not contagious from what I remember, but yes it can be very scary. My children had it and my niece did so badly they they rushed her to a different hospital by ambulance when she was little. Hang in there.

Hi Sherry
I am so glad to hear Mallory is enjoying her new school. She looks great in her St Patrick's Day outfit.
I hope your grandson is improving with his croup. It must be a very worrying time with him having such a high temperature.
I have posted a picture of Jessica on my blog wearing your hat. I think it looks great. Thanks again.

My DIL made this up using the pictures of my 5 oldest boys. So funny!
