Life With the Smiths

Still we are busy.... I know that it is coming. It has to be. What is it? It is some calm and some routine. We are halfway there. We do go to school everyday. :)

This past weekend was just crazy. We had several unexpected things to come up at church on Saturday and Sunday. Monday, I just don't even remember it. It already seems like so long ago. Yesterday, Tuesday, was busy. I had to teach my classes in the morning, shopping and errands in the early afternoon, teacher's meeting after picking the kids up from school, an hour at home, errands to run for church, teen club at church, and then finally home very late last night.

Today, Wednesday, isn't going as planned. During my 1st hour class the secretary informed me that I had to take Chloe home from school due to a high fever. I left school early. I called the pediatrician to get her an appt. The earliest appt. wasn't until 6:40 p.m. So, I took her to the urgent care center. We had a 3 1/2 hour wait until we saw the doctor. Then we had to wait another 45 minutes for the test results. She has strep throat AGAIN! This is the 3rd time in 4 months. Yes, I am thinking that her tonsils probably need to come out. Usually the doctor tells us that she can go back to school 24 hours after the 1st dose of medicine. This time he said she can't go out until Saturday, which means she misses 3 days of school this week. It is only the 2nd week of school!

Thursday and Friday I am going to teach my classes. All of my other plans are cancelled, so I can stay home with Chloe.

We are planning a big day at church on Sunday. It is our Friend and Family Day. We have lots of guests coming Sunday morning. We lunch at church that afternoon. We have a 5th Sunday Sing (lots of special music from whomever wants to sing and lots of congregational music) that night. We are really looking forward to it.

Oh my Rachel, you are amazing. The Lord certainly is blessing you with strength. I am concerned for your daughter. I will pray for her. I think probiotics (or eating yogurt) might help build her immune system.
