Our wee magician.

Grace is so great with her magic tricks.

My two beauties at home.

My sick beauty at the doctor's office. So far this week, Grace had her head trauma, Kate's been diagnosed with pneumonia and Suki's asthma has spun out of control even with oral and inhaled steroids and her albuterol. Today she was diagnosed with a sinus infection on top of that and has another medication. Poor dear -- I hope she and Kate are feeling better soon.

Grace had a great time at Giselle's birthday party today!

Sickies at home.

Today Grace and I played a game together after school. It was so sweet to have time for just the two of us.

Meanwhile, Suki and Kate were having a time at the pediatrician's office with David. Kate was diagnosed with pneumonia and an ear infection, Suki with a bad asthma episode.

Nebulizers all around!

Waiting for their prescriptions -- an oral steroid for Suki, an antibiotic for Kate. What a week for the pediatrician!

I volunteered in Suki's class today, and got to spend recess time with her and with Kate. Kate was having a blast, she is so strong with her tricycle pedaling and was singing her favorite song from the Lion King (Just Can't Wait To Be King). When their school day was done, I left the girls at school for lunch and an art class and went over to volunteer in Grace's class where they are doing a research project on meteorological phenomenon. It is so nice to be at a point where I can actually leave children where they are so happy and volunteer in a sister's classroom.

Things did take a striking turn for the worse after we got home. Within an hour Kate went from cheerful to nauseous to worse. She and Suki both have tough sounding coughs at this point and then right before bed Kate spike a 102 degree fever. Hopefully they kick whatever it is overnight. And in other exciting news, a student in Grace's class was sent home today with lice. Cross everything that such a thing never comes to call here.

Silly girls after school.

Grace at her bass lesson -- as you can see, her bruise is something else.
