The twins came to see us a week ago. Their older sister stayed home to have some one on one time with Mom. Our daughter-in-law brought the girls over Friday evening. We shared a pot of coffee before she left and caught up on what’s happening at their house. Our DIL’s department at work is undergoing a huge remodel right now and she is ready for that to be done! I can’t blame her.
After she left, it was close to bedtime. DH put the girls in their jams, distributed snacks, read stories and prayed with them. They were pretty good about settling down. Saturday morning, though, Rose Red woke up sick. Poor thing! She had a fever and threw up several times during the day. She spent most of the day asleep.
Snow White took a walk uptown with our Youngest Daughter to get sandwiches for lunch. It was a beautiful day to be outside. On the way home, they found coal by the railroad tracks. Snow White was SO excited!
We spent quite a bit of time online watching videos of coal mining and rock and crysal formations. Snow White is very interested in anything to do with science.
At 10:00 that night, Rose Red woke up and said she felt a lot better. And, of course, after sleeping all day she wasn’t tired. DH started a movie for her and he fell asleep while she watched. When he woke up at 1:00, she was asleep again.
Both girls seemed to feel fine Sunday morning. We kept them home from church just in case. After church, DH took them home. They had a school program at 2:00, so DH stayed for that before coming home.
The program was “Health and Fitness.” As you can see, Rose Red was not really into the topic at that particular time. Still not feeling 100%.
Snow White, on the other hand, was ready to go!
It’s always fun to watch how the girls react to life, to learning something new, to the way they find intense interest in what has become to us mundane. It helps me better appreciate the every day.
