Windy Day

I don't know about anyone else, but I'm sick and tired of the wind. It started out to be such a nice day, and then the wind has to come and ruin it, my patio furniture is blown across the yard, and dirt is flying everywhere. While we were eating dinner today, Macey started singing this little song that we sing a lot at our house, it goes something like: wind wind go away we don't want you here today. Macey and Caleb want to play so never come here again! So it's another day cooped up.
Macey has been sick the past couple weeks, which the wind has actually made it kind of easy to hang out and watch movies with her, and a good excuse to just be lazy. I hate when my kids are sick, but I won't complain about getting to just sit and hold them. Along with being sick, her lymph nodes swelled to the point that I decided to make a trip to the Dr's, where he was quite impressed by the size of them. She's been on Antibiotics, which has helped, and luckily an abscess had not formed. Thankfully, she's pretty much back to her little self again.

Macey has really amazing teachers at church, and it's been really fun to hear her tell us what she's learning in class. On the way home she was telling us that they learned about promises. We asked her what does it mean, and she said "well I told the class that I promised that I peed in the shower this morning, and Caleb pooped in the bath, I promise." So I wonder who learns more, the kids or the teachers?

Haha! That is awesome. I always cringe when I think of what my kids say to their teachers.

Kids are so honest-they tell everything(mine do, no secret is safe). Glad Macey is on the mend-Riley has been sick too-I think tomorrow is a trip to the doc.
