Our Sick Week Becomes Spring Break
Happy Day After St. Patrick's Day! Did you wear green? Did you go to any cool parades this weekend? Eat (or drink) anything Irish or pseudo-Irish and yummy? I made McCann's Irish Oatmeal for breakfast, with berries and brown sugar and milk. It was quite good. The girls preferred cereal. Grrrr...
It is spring break. My one St. Paddy's thing to do at school last week fell through, due to illness. There is no point in reading the lovely Fiona's Luck to a classroom full of kids if you have no voice!!! I had no voice. In fact, it only came back two days ago. I missed it. The house was very, very quiet, without the sound of me singing, or yelling, or chattering like a loon. Because of illness, we also missed the St. Patrick's Day parade in town.
Big Sis and I wore our green yesterday. Green is my favorite color, you know. I have no problem finding green things in my closet. We wore our green while running errands. Last night, we read the first half of Magic Tree House #43: Leprechaun in Late Winter.
What else has happened this past week? Not much, I'm afraid. We bid farewell to the last bit of snow...
Then the weather got really, really nice, but Big Sis and I were sick and missed that. In fact, she missed four days of school. Spring break began on Friday. We made it to the library, loading up on more titles for Women's History Month. (Tune in tomorrow!) You can see what subject Little Sis is most excited about. Yes, we left with another Amelia Earhart book.
Poor Little Sis came down with the nasty stuff this weekend, just in time for spring break. She keeps begging to look at pictures of Little Miss No Name and Susie Sad Eyes dolls on Flickr and eBay. They are inspiring her art and play time.
Today has been rougher for her. Poor Big Sis is ready to go places and do things. Little Sis has other ideas.
Now that my voice has returned, we are reading together again. I shall have some more Women's History Month posts, among other things. Hope everyone is staying well!

Like a "damsel in distress," but with an "n" and a "z." And I'm not in distress. Rather, I'm another mother, bookworm, & lover of things before my time.
Sunday, we saw the Ballet Wichita production of The Nutcracker. It has become a tradition for the girls and me. I grew up taking grad...
