Thursday morning Ella told me she her tummy hurt and after the throwing up incident with Kayley and Scott the weekend before I took her seriously. About 10 minutes after the bus left she was running around acting crazy and fighting with Addie,
so I told her it was time to go to school.
She was planning to skip school this coming Tuesday when we celebrate Addie's birthday at Joy School (Ella was disappointed she didn't get to "help" me with the class when we cancelled the first class of the month...Addie was sick and Ella's school hadn't started up again) but she chose to stay home this day instead after I explained she couldn't miss both of them.
It ended up being a fun day to miss school :-). We met up with friends at the park and enjoyed the great weather all day long.
(and I'm thankful she hasn't had to miss school for really being sick yet...playing is much more fun for all of us)
"It's too bright mom!"
