Bebe Sister had a nice fall during library story time on Tuesday. Aside from a nasty-looking bump on her head and a bit of a black eye, she enjoyed her first bit of play dough. Luckily, Nana was around to supervise.
Poor T Rex had a high fever all week. I have a new, super cool Exergen thermometer so I was able to quickly and easily monitor his temperature. It stayed around 105 degrees F for four days, then dropped to 101. By day 6 it was around 100 and then he developed a rash on his neck and back. The rash progressed to the rest of his trunk and then to the extremities. By day seven he was nearly rash free and was without a fever for 24 hours. Aside from wanting to lay around and demanding lots of snuggles, he was a pretty good sport.
My mom was here to help for a couple days this week so I could get some canning, cleaning, and chores done. I am trying to prepare for T Rex Dad's vacation. It's actually a "stay-cation" but I'd really like for us to not have to spend his entire time off having a Soviet holiday. I also wrote out the list of remaining projects I hope to accomplish the remainder of my summer break - it is two pages long. Hence, my lack of presence online all that often.
We did watch a lot of baseball. My nephew's team was participating in a tournament just up the street about a mile away so I carted the kids in the bike trailer to several of the games. T Rex Dad joined us when he could.
