The Smokey Mountains

Greg and I had a GREAT time on our "getaway weekend." It was as if the spark of fun and all the things that had been masked with kids stuff was rekindled. We laughed, played, joked and had a blast with one another. It was one of the best things we could have done for our relationship. The end of our mini-vacation came too soon, BUT we were both ready to get home to the kids. With Brock having hand, foot and mouth, it was pretty apparent that Berkley would probably get it. Mom reported on Sunday that her fever had reached 103 so we just assume she has it also. There has been no decrease in appetite thankfully. She has had a tiny bit of what seemed to be vomiting, a little diarrhea and she wouldn't keep her passie in her mouth. The fever has subsided thankfully and now she is just very clingy, whiny and sleepy. Poor baby.

The Big Red School called yesterday morning and wanted to say they were very sorry that Brock got sick but no one had hand, foot and mouth so he didn't get it from school. Somehow I have to disagree with that one. BUT, they said that since he only got to come one time, he could come to the July session and all we would have to pay is an extra $15.00. Gee, we only spent $60 to take him to the doctor not including medications which I believe were $30 which totals exactly what we paid for pre-school for 6 days...$90.00. Even though he got sick, we are going to take him back. He really needs the socialization so we'll give it another shot. I know that sickness goes with school and I'm going to have to get over it but that doesn't mean I have to like it one bit!
I will post a slide show of the mountains soon. It's bedtime! Night night!

I found your blog through Motherhood for Dummies. Your blog is adorable as are your kiddos.

I feel your frustration with the medical bills and the preschool non-sense. Good luck with that! :)

The preschool/getting sick kind of does go hand in hand. It is hard to introduce kids to a new place and people and have them germ free. But actually the silver lining is that studies say that kids that get exposed to different germs and such from school and socializing actually end up having a better immune system. But hopefully he will be good and healthy :)
