I got to school and sort of kept the lid on the kids until it was time to get on the bus for the beach. It was day five of a fairly high fever for my youngest, so I took a couple of minutes to phone into the advice nurse. The verdict was bring her in, so no beach trip for me. There was plenty of staff and very few kids, so I felt less guilty.
Several hours, four vials of her blood, and a throat swab later, we ruled out mononucleosis, liver issues, appendicitis and discovered strep. This means that since my throat has been sore, I am due for a throat culture, too, but I think I might give it a miss. I really think mine is more of an ear ache/sinus thing from the vog and I didn't ever have that fever she had.
My husband finished the sheep barn - and it looks great. I will take pictures tomorrow (Friday by the latest as that is Kamehameha Day, a State Holiday). He made a section that the bigger rams can't get into, but the ewes and lambs can and it has it's own water catchment, so much easier to water, at least when it is raining. I am pretty impressed - and the horses have their whole barn back!
Have to run to feed, collect eggs, and drive back down the mountain to get number three child from cheerleading practice. Number three child says he is in it to learn how to do a backflip, but he is coming on 14 and I am wondering if the girls don't have a factor in the whole decision... at the very least, his two best friends (twins) round out the male members of the squad, and the coach is ecstatic to have them. Since number three child can't even do a cartwheel, yet, I do wonder how long she will feel that way....
