It is so nice to have spring really here. This tree is in our front yard and the blooms just popped. The tulips are up and my eyes are itchy. But that is what Allegra is for.

In the category of good news, we hit our numbers for new students. Whoohoo! We will lose some over the summer, but we will add more. So we should be in good shape.

In the category of not great news, Cooper came home from school yesterday with a fever. Uuuuuuuuuuuuugh. It was 102.5 yesterday, and does respond nicely to Motrin. He has been in the 99 - 100 neighborhood today, which is better, but he is off his game for sure. No trip to the farm today! He is eating, which is good, but I don't know what it causing it. We will wait until Monday to see if we need to see the doctor. If it is strep again, we might have to talk about taking his tonsils out. Apparently there is a correlation between that and chronic strep. But since he hasn't been exhibiting any other symptoms of anything I am not sure what to think. I am fairly sure since we haven't been to Mexico or cavorting with anyone who has been to Mexico recently, we are NOT talking about the swine flu. But I might blame that stupid bouncy house.

Ah... like mother like son. I, on the other hand, still have my tonsils which is a rather odd place to have them but there they are nonetheless.

Nice pic. It brightened up my day. That would be the day from hell.
