Back to school. Healthy all year round, and yet at the finish line, we've had to take a week off. Of course the Milestones testing will have to be made up. We were back to ballet too, where everyone else was apparently sick as well. Strep throat is going around, but this has been something else altogether. It's baffling. It's also miserable.
On the bright side of things, I'm not sure if I've mentioned we have our Sodapalooza cups. Oh yes, it's like Christmas season around here, where we're always dropping by to get free drinks. The Race Trac is right next to where Daddy works, so I'm not sure if they've properly calculated the cost of making this available to our family! Madison has a pink cap on her cup, and Daddy has a purple one, mainly because of Ƭ̵̬̊. Or maybe it was because of Barney. Anyway, no one else was getting purple. So here we are, getting all kinds of vitamin waters and gatorades because of sickness. But we'll get the slushies too. That much is guaranteed. It's a wonderful time of year!
Did you see this chore chart? We're working on creating something so that Madison will stay busy and responsible over the summer. The big areas to work on are keeping her room tidy, and of course a massive goal for the summer is learning to swim. That's a big deal. Beyond that, of course, the summer is full. Just about every week there's a camp or event, from Summer Xtreme to Art Camp to Ballet camp to hopefully a vacation visiting Nana and Ba-Ba. We'll see them in July, most likely. Hopefully everyone will be well by then, and yep, we'll still be using our Sodapalooza cups!
