More Zoo Fun and a Couple of Sickies

Weekly Happenings: Since Joseph and Paul both had Monday off, we got an early start and headed to the zoo before it got too hot. It was surprisingly not busy (I suppose more people were hitting up Sea World/Aquatica, Six Flags, and the like). We had a great time and then headed home to just rest and relax in the air conditioning. The rest of the week that followed was pretty average. Friday, I started feeling sick again (pretty much the same symptoms I had a couple weeks ago), so I asked Paul if he could come home early. I went into urgent care and found out I had strep. Again. Two days after I finished the antibiotics for my first bout with it. I got my new antibiotics and headed home. A couple hours later, Abigail popped a high temperature, so (with my diagnosis in mind) Paul and I agreed that he should probably take HER into urgent care as well. She also had strep. Boo. So she got set up with antibiotics, too. Here’s to praying the boys don’t get it!

The Weekly Weather: Hot. Humid. We’re just going to leave it at that, haha. Pardon me while I go make sure all the curtains and blinds are closed, haha.

What Paul’s Been Up To: School and work have been keeping him rather busy. He’s also had to once again take on the role of “disinfector” as we try to cleanse the house of germs.

What Sarah’s Been Up To: My pretty normal stuff. Luckily I didn’t wait to see if I would get worse before I went back in to urgent care, so I’m already starting to feel better.

What Joseph’s Been Up To: School, a play date with one of his buddies, and being his normal happy self.

What Abigail’s Been Up To: She’s been pretty happy even though she’s had her grumpy moments (she doesn’t understand why she doesn’t feel good…she just knows she doesn’t…that would make me grumpy, too). Hopefully we caught it early enough with her, too, so that she won’t be uncomfortable for much longer. It hurts my heart a bit when my babies are sick.

This Week in Pictures:

Posing on the hippos before they got too hot!
His choice this time was the hummingbird because “they can fly really fast!”
Joseph really wanted to feed the lories. He sort of changed his mind when they started getting close, though.
Brushing a sweet little goat in the petting zoo area.
Munching on some popcorn while checking out one of the many dinosaurs scattered around the zoo.
Checking out the miniature mongoose…and the camera.
Double Daddy Duty.
A friend of mine gave Abigail a bunch of those little square board books. Those are probably her favorite size because she can hold them in her hands better than bigger books.
Joseph teaching his friend how to play Pokémon…while Abigail tries to figure out how to get up to all of their stuff.
