Kate was having so happy to receive a thank you note from her dear friend Lizzie today.

She is still very weak, sometimes disoriented and grumpy -- but she is getting better.

Suki was so proud to show off her homework.

Grace and her Star Reader coupon.  She received a book today in a random drawing of children who have completed extra reading assignments.

AND her book had gorillas in it.  What a perfect day for her.

Kate is feeling better today, thank goodness.  She ate sliced banana and bread and then even a sandwich for dinner.

On her way to school.

Back home and ready for homework.

Skyping and having fun with London-based David.

A pretty snowy start to spring.

Poor Suki, I had to try to grab her on the way to the bus.

An under the weather Kate was diagnosed with gastroenteritis.

Pedialyte ice pops and rest and she was definitely feeling a bit better.

My sweet Sook.

Off to bed!

Snow day meant a breakfast full of treats, including some from our friends from around the corner.

Out to play in the snow!

This was SUCH A fun time with my dear friend Jess and her dog Piper.  Right up until the point when Kate was in a room alone with the dog, and by her report Piper became interested in Kate's braid.  Interested as in, it turns out Kate's hair looked just like a braided chew toy Piper loves at home.  Jess and I didn't realize until this urgent, unearthly wail came from the next room -- we rushed in and found the dog with Kate's braid in her mouth, and Kate wasn't hurt, but was afraid "that dog is going to eat my head!"  Poor Kate.  Jess picked up Piper, I picked up Kate, and we kept them apart for a few minutes.  And then everything was fine again, thank goodness.

Reading before bed.
