I'm still here, barely. Just kidding. This morning Lara and I went to both my doctor's office and hers. We both have sinus infections and she has an ear infection as well. That explains the low grade fever. Sheesh, we've been sick for like what 2 weeks now? At least we have some antibiotics and cough medicine :)
It's been a tough week and I'm ready for the weekend. Nicholas had an incident as school where a girl in his class told him, "Bring me a dollar tomorrow, or I'll kill you. And I'm a black belt." There is a book fair going on and she wanted money to spend there. He came home crying and finallly told me about it. Nick was so traumitized he cried when he went to sleep talking about have to go back to school. I let him sleep with me. In the morning he came up with all kinds of ailments and told me he was scared to go to school. Poor baby!!! And this is 2nd grade! The whole thing blew my mind.
Anyway, I talked to his teacher and she said she would talk to the girl. They take these things very seriously and the principal interviewed the kids separately. Turns out there were two other girls there watching. The girl was remorseful and got punished at home and at school. Not sure what it was, but I did say to the principle that given the age of the children that she shouldn't come down too hard on her. After all she is only 9. So I think she probably lost some recess. She wrote Nick an apology as well. After showing me it when Nick got home, he said he forgave her right away and they are friends. I was so proud of him!
Okay on to scrapbooking, this is a page I had done a while back and hated. So I fixed it up and here is. It is two years old. It was taken at Nicholas' Fall Carnival. The tiger is their mascot.

Well, that's it from me except to apologize for not stopping by your blogs recently. I just haven't had ANY energy. Have a good one.
