five on friday

:: ONE ::

The girls had a half day of school last week, so I took them to our local museum for a look at the
mummy exhibit.  They weren’t too impressed.  Well … truth is, they were a little freaked out.
And I guess I wasn’t really thinking … they were real mummies.  And not all of them were wrapped.

Given that Wynt thinks a little too deeply and darkly, and that Hunter is just a tad too young …
we probably should’ve skipped the exhibit.  Good news is that it caused some good conversation
about other culture’s beliefs and customs.

Piper was on a playdate for the weekend, so she wasn’t with us.  And the teen was off doing teeny-like things!

:: TWO ::

CJ’s been traveling, so I decided to break up our routine at home and take the girls
on an overnight field trip to a waterpark not too far away … the fun also
included playing hooky from school, so the girls were ALL over it!

About 7:00 Monday night, Hunter started complaining of a sore throat.
By 1:00 in the morning, she was burning hot.  I was the picture of
happiness padding through the hotel lobby trying to get some
ibuprofen at the gift store!

By morning when she woke, she was burning again and could barely talk
through her swollen throat.  So I did what any mom-who-drove-45-minutes-and-has-two-other-healthy-
girls-wanting-to-swim would do … made a doc appt for right after lunch time
so the girls could still get some swimming in!

Turns out Hunter has strep … doc didn’t even have to do a test.  Ten seconds looking
inside her mouth and she was diagnosed!

Anyway … when we got home, Hunt was doing some drawing and did a self-portrait.  When she was
done drawing … she was sure to point out her sore throat on the masterpiece!  See it?  All red and ouchy,
highlighted in yellow …

:: THREE ::

A surprise late night visit from my mommy … treats in hand with a special message too!
The older girls were grounded and put to bed early, and with Hunt’s strep … she was easy to
put down early too.  Sooo … we were all in bed when I heard a knock on the door … freaked me out!
She’d texted me, but my phone wasn’t near me … so yeah.  Good thing she came
bearing goodies & love!  ;)
