The kids were sick today.

Darla was sluggish and didn’t want to go to school today. She said her tummy hurts. Both girls are usually pretty honet and accurate about their stomachs, and if they say it hurts, there’s a good chance they’re actually going to puke sometime soon.

Unfortunately, I still had to get Kirin to school, and you’re never really sure if they’re not just faking… so we took a chance and packed them off to school.

We didn’t make it.

Darla got sick about 34 of the way to school. Fortunately I’m not completely dumb, and we brought a bucket and Darla managed to not make a huge mess everywhere.

We eventually made it to school, dropped off Kirin, and made it home (after a few more stops).

Then around Noon the school calls.

Kirin is sick.

Back to school to pick her up (once Angela got home from work to watch Darla).

Both kids lounged around the house all afternoon, making a remarkable recovery.

Later in the day they both felt well enough to come with me to the hardware store.

Yeah, they look sick. 😕

They both better go to school tomorrow. 😄
