***Update! Matty did score 100% on his test, and has already spent the money, one hour after he got it. I have not seen him so happy over an accomplishment in a long time. He has felt very discouraged over math lately. This was just the thing to boost his morale.
We topped off the week with a lovely visit to Manassas Battlefield park, where we visited the museum and took a walk.
Miss Molly has been sick this week. It began with a headache on Sunday morning and by the evening had turned into a fever and a cough. Over the next three days she ran a fever, sometimes as high as 103, and had a barking cough that caused her to hurt all over. Finally yesterday the fever broke, but her appetite had not quite returned and she was still fairly exhausted. Nebulizer treatments have helped make the cough bearable. This morning at 9:20 as I write this, she is still sleeping, for which I am so glad. Needless to say she didn't get any school done, but she watched a lot of PBS kids! I always feel so helpless when my babies are sick!
Since Molly was sick, she was unable to join us at the battlefield, but fortunately Dad was home telecommuting for the day, which allowed me to accompany Matty and some friends. It was windy! I took these with my iPhone so I'm not sure how pixilated they will be here...
