Yes, people. You read that correctly. Hand, Foot and Mouth. Cue the ewwww. :)
On Wednesday night Griffin had a weird, low grade fever and she was super clingy - but I didn't think much about it. She went to Miss Lisa's on Thursday - and Thursday after school she looked like this....
Hair a hot mess - check
Cheez-Its on her face - check
Weird, red patches all over her lips and chin - check
She seemed to be feeling fine, and didn't have a fever.... so we passed the time watching Sofia the First and working on her pout.
Thursday night she was restless and cranky and woke up around 9:00 p.m. Dave was working and so she sat like this, perfectly still, mean muggin' while I worked on lesson plans for at least an hour.
Friday morning was the Jog-A-Thon for Lower School at MCA and so my whole crew headed up there to watch Luke and his classmates run. I took the day off to be able to watch Luke and then spend the rest of the day running some errands and getting caught up on stuff, but some of my students were hanging out at the Jog-A-Thon and were running up and down the hill with Mason - so sweet!!!
And then Mason joined in!
We were cracking up because all the kids kind of stop and start. Walk for a little bit, then run for a while, then stop for water, etc. Not Mason. He legitimately ran at a constant pace for about 25 minutes. hahaha
Luke did AWESOME and had so much fun and they ended the race with a little pep talk/devotional from the principal.
My Manda Strong shirt came on Thursday and I was EAGER to wear it! If you missed our initial order, we just opened up a second!!! Click HERE to purchase!!!
Friday night we had some serious coloring time...
She woke up Saturday morning with more spots on her face and legs and she needed LOTS of snuggles. We can deal with that!
Saturday morning I needed to run to the grocery store and Mason tagged along. Working full time, it's hard to get one-on-one time with the boys, especially Mason. Luke and I chit chat on the way to and from school, but RARELY do I have a moment with just Mason. We made silly faces and then headed to Kroger. He got to eat a fresh tortilla and push the little cart AND have my undivided attention... he was in heaven!!!
We were scheduled to have our family pictures taken on Saturday morning and as the spots kept popping up all over G's face throughout the day on Saturday I'm so glad we decided to wait :)
Sunday morning we decided to quarantine ourselves at home and ate Lucky Charms in bed and watched some cartoons instead of going to church. We were sad to miss, but we wanted everyone's immune systems to have a break from extra germs for one more day before heading back to school and Miss Lisa's house :)
We spent the day hanging out outside (it was GORGEOUS!) and cleaning/organizing all the things. :) It's supposed to FREEZE here this week (literally!) and so I happily changed the kids sheets to their flannels. It's the one time all year I don't mind changing sheets. :)
Part of the great organizational day of 2014 was a big closet purge for Miss G. Which means a What Griffin Wore day is coming! I'll keep you posted, but I'm thinking Tuesday night.
Also, something SUPER exciting is about to happen! Matilda Jane announced a blanket promotion!!! Details are below... but just know that their blankets are THE best! Griffin's pink one from last year is fought over every day in our house and lots of you have asked how to get one... well, now's the chance!
UGGs are on Hautelook today! Hurry hurry because they always sell out QUICK!!!
Happy Monday, friends!!!
