Viruses, Children, and this Crazy Winter

 The children were/are/will be sick.  First, it was Sophia. The fever came up the Sunday of a three day weekend. After four days of sitting on the couch, we took her in to confirm our suspicions...yessir, influenza. The poor girl stayed home all week.  She missed the awards ceremony (she was due to receive another academic excellence award) and the spelling bee she worked so hard to study for.  The following Saturday, she was (finally) okay.  But then Liv had come home from school the day before and immediately laid down on the couch. 102.6 fever. *Groan*  This morning, Dylan's incessant coughing woke me. *oh, no* He insisted he just had a small cough (he has basketball games every day this week). Mean momma made him stay home.

Kids will get sick from time to time. This winter has been pretty brutal for this fam, though.  And now, they all want to be ill right before I start work.  Ugh. You would think as it is cold as all h3ll (-20, high of ZERO) these viruses would just freeze.
