My Week 18

myweekdiptych19web

The first shot was taken on January 30th. My little honey girl enjoying a huge lollipop while we capture a photo for her Valentine's day card. She was pretty excited to have a chance at that lollipop, but she really only made it about 1/8 of the way through it, and had enough.

The second shot was taken on January 31st. Two days a week, I walk along side a building that used to be a school in our school district. Now it houses a dance school. It makes me sad to see it in such disrepair. It hurts my heart to know that there just isn't money to keep buildings up in our community. This is not an unusual sight. This week I filled out a survey asking what I thought might be most important when considering what to cut from our school district in the next two years due to budget issues. I honestly couldn't think of a single thing that I felt comfortable cutting funding to. This picture reminds me of that situation. It makes me sad.

The third shot was taken on February 1st, which was the first day of a strange fever situation for Sugar Bear. She spent a good deal of her time in bed this day, but she wasn't alone. I didn't mind joining her. ♥

The fourth shot was taken on February 2nd. Another day of fever...no other symptoms. Sugar Bear had perfect attendance at school for the entire year until this week......not anymore. But....we had a wonderful time putting a 550 piece puzzle together. I so enjoy our quiet time.

The fifth shot was taken on February 3rd, and coincidentally....it was the third day of fever, and an extra special day with my girl. ♥ Nothing like a good game or Memory to cheer a sick little honey up. Still no other symptoms.

The sixth shot was taken on February 4th, and there was no school scheduled that day, so luckily Sugar Bear didn't have to miss ANOTHER day of school. We were unsure if the fever would come back. It did not...and we were sufficiently stir crazy so we took a quick trip to the library. The library is always a wonderful way to cheer us up. Awwww......books. We love them. ♥

The seventh shot was taken on February 5th. There was no fever, but I do believe there is a sickness. Oh how I am lovesick with my girl. There just isn't anything like being her mother. I just can't believe how blessed I am. The days at home together...with no responsibilities.....what a special treat. It drew up closer....and I am grateful.

I never even thought of dragging out a 550 piece puzzle to do with Piper. Maybe I don't challenge her enough. That strange fever illness was in our house too. All 3 of my kids had it starting with Ruby ending with Violet and her fever just broke yesterday. Crazy isn't it? The area I am in is relatively new but down south a little bit they are considering cutting the funding to their pre-k program which makes me very sad. I just had a light bulb go off and realized you are doing a 365 project. Yay you!

I hope you guys are feeling better. It is so sad to see your babies sick, but it is nice to have that extra quality time together.

Ugh... what a week. Glad you guys made the best of it. I worry so much about school budget cuts. I'm attending a school board meeting next week to see if they will be closing Bugs school or another small country school and combining the two. I'm hoping it's not Bugs school that closes. I hate that it's come to this. Our state needs to reevaluate how it funds our schools because it is not working!

She sure has a big smile at the library.

I love the book shot!

Janet said...

I do hope your'e both on the mend now! Hope your Valentines Day is as sweet as that lollipop!

Christina said...

I love it that two days in a row have the same purple pajamas. :o) Cozy days like that are wonderful...sometimes being a bit under the weather helps us slow down just enough. The mystery fever sounds strange tho, and I hope she's bounced back now! Oh, and I'm amazed SB can help with a 550 piece puzzle...100 pieces overwhelms Nadia!
