Connor's preschool had its Grandparents Day program today with lunch. All the kids drew a picture and answered questions about their grandparents. These were hung on the wall outside their room. Here's Connor's
Click to high def it if it does not show up well.
The kids put on a soup opera in which 3 customers are seated at a table, had their order taken by waiters. They wanted French onion soup.
The waiters took away the menus and brought each a big bowl of soup. But...the customers told the waiter they could not eat the soup. Which brought out the chefs.
The chefs were told "we cannot eat this soup" No one understood why and so a couple of local mayors arrived to get to the bottom of it. Connor was one of the mayors.
The mayors all carried large pencils in order to take down the evidence.
Finally someone thought to ask "why can't you eat your soup?" And the answer was: "Because we have no spoons!" Bwahahahahhahahaa.
Then the kids stood together for a song
The skit ended with a prayer given by Connor which began like this:
But eventually settled into this:
Then we all trooped down to the lunchroom and ate with our grandchild
Each table had a paper tablecloth colored by the class. Connor had what the others at the table at first called "a smorgasboard" and then later the more modern term...buffet. We are grandparents afterall, using the old term we grew up with for a large spread of food.
Now to visit Connor's classroom
Boom! right in the door and off to playing with whatever that stuff was, kind of gooey tiny dots all rolled into globs.
We were packed in there
The boys then headed over to the Legos where they pretty much stayed.
He's suffering from RSV-Respiratory Syncytial Virus infection-which has had him pretty darn sick since last Saturday. This virus, which we never heard of when our kids were young, was first named in 1956 and resembles a bad chest cold but gets into the lungs much deeper. This is a very contagious virus and with older kids it usually takes the form of a bad cold, but with babies it can be much more serious.
With Jake the RSV took the form of initial congestion then added a spiking fever, and yesterday the doctor discovered he has also developed an ear infection. He now has antibiotics for the ear infection which I believe may help everything else. Although antibiotics are not prescribed for viruses, the secondary ear infection qualifies and could well help the fever. He also got a lung nebulizer to help the lung congestion and last night was his first go at it.
It's so hard to see a baby suffer and be scared of that contraption, but I feel better after talking to a friend of ours whose son had RSV as a baby. She said that the crying actually helps move the medication in the nebulizer deep into the lungs where it needs to go.
Hopefully today will be better and tomorrow more so.
Last night seminary basketball, this morning 6 year old basketball. This was Christian's Christ Community Lutheran School team (CCLS) and he was wearing number 10. Just in case you might wonder why number 10 is in a lot of these pics.
First a get together with the ref, both teams listen to just what is going to go on.
A lot of this
And a lot of that
And even a bit of something else
A bit of square dancing
Then after 8 four minute quarters the two teams get into lines and slap hands.
And then one of the more awkward photos I've taken, but it turned out cute.
Coach says, good game guys, see you next week. The CCLS boys beat Kirkwood 22-18
