We have been struggling with the 'sickies' around here. I got a horrible sinus infection and then Caroline got this freak virus that had her temperature still rising at 104.1! CRAZY! So for a week, we did nothing but stay in the bed. Once we were all better, life become hectic.
I substitute taught at her preschool for the last 5 days which wore me slap out! I'm not used to chasing 8 2-year olds at the same time! LOL! But, it was fun and Caroline went to school each day which was an adjustment for her in the mornings. She had a great time!
I've been playing lots of tennis as I have made it to the City Finals for one of my singles leagues. Yay! I had the battle of the century last night and now I am hobbling around (yes, thank you wonderful ankle!). But, I am also gearing up for another match this afternoon. CRAZY!
Caroline has rediscovered her love for strawberries this week. Strawberries were on sale for $1.00/lb at Target, so we made several trips to buy her berries. All in all, I bought 14 lbs and I think she could eat them all! I am freezing about half of them so we can make strawberry smoothies and shakes for a bit. It's a GREAT price to stock up, but the sale ends today. Who knows? I may even go back today to get some more (there is a limit). :) She even wanted to take a bag of berries to her friends at school for snack. Of course, we packed them up and she loved sharing with her friends.
Caroline has been LOVING the paints that I bought her. She paints at least twice a day and plays with her new playdough and the tools. She is so creative and can spend hours at the table! I was never really excited about my glass kitchen table until I discovered how easy it was to wipe away the paint! Now, I am loving it!
Here are some pictures of her painting a handprint shamrock. Sorry that the pictures are out of order, but I am having difficulty with downloading my pics. But, you get the point!
