A Sore Throat

This past weekend K got sick with a fever and he told me the bottom of his mouth hurt. After 24 hours of a fever and not feeling so good we thought it might be a good idea to get him checked out. Much to my surprise, he has strep throat. Poor little guy. I guess it is very contagious for the first 24 hours so we have been bracing ourselves to see if it will show up in someone else around here. So far so good.
The girls slept over at Grandma Mary's on Saturday night. K was supposed to sleep there too so Jon and I could have a date night but since he was not feeling so great we decided it was only fair to keep him at home in his own bed so we went out for an hour and then brought K back to his own bed.
After we found out it was Strep on Sunday, Grandma decided it would be best to keep the girls away. She had them all morning and then they were invited over to Sue's house for the afternoon. Sue likes to read books to the kids when they are there so on Sunday she was reading them a book. She was so impressed that they were sitting so still and listening so well. Then her daughter kristin took this picture...both girls were sound asleep. We all had a good laugh about this one.
The good news is that K is feeling much better and life is back to the norm around here. Now if we can all just hold out and stay healthy!
