Take Anna to Work Day?

Tuesday morning Anna told me that her throat was hurting, and she was pretty sure that it was Strep. I looked at it, and it didn't look too bad, so I sent her to school. I had to work that day, so I told her that we would go to the doctor as soon as I was done teaching. We went that afternoon, in between thunderstorms, and sure enough it was Strep! The doctor was clearly in her 70's and didn't want to believe that it was Strep, but Anna's had it enough now that she knows when she has it. Because she had Strep and was contagious for 24 hours, she couldn't go to school on Wednesday. Well, I work on Wednesdays as well, and I couldn't take off because it's the end of the school year, or change teaching days because I was busy the rest of the week. What was I going to do? Well, the only thing I could do! I took Anna to work with me! She packed a large purse full of fun stuff to do, and off we went to teach tuba lessons! I only had 7 students that day, and 6 of them were at Danny's school, so Danny was able to entertain Anna during 3 of those students. She got bored by the last 2, but she held in there and made it to the end without any major tantrums or problems! Even when she felt really yucky and just wanted to take a nap, she didn't really complain! Ahh...if only she were like that all the time!

My New Toy!

Danny sold mom's car on Easter and she gave him a nice commission for his work. There are a ton of things that we could have done with the money, but I saw this cute, little steamer at Wal-Mart, and looked it up online. It got great reviews, so Danny and I decided to splurge and buy it. It was only $70 and it's the best $70 we have spent! I love it! My carpet gets really dirty, and this gets it really clean! It's a little disturbing to see the dark brown water that I dump out of it, but that tells me that it's working! It doesn't clean large areas at a time, but that's perfect for us, because with 2 kids running around, we can't have large areas of damp carpets! It also fits nicely in our vacuum closet, and it's not super heavy. I am no longer ashamed to let people see my living room floor!

It's a boy!

For those of you who don't know, I am pregnant, and expecting the first week of September. I had a sonogram and all looks good with the baby, and it is indeed a healthy boy! Danny and I are super excited, and Anna is quite relieved that she doesn't have to share her room with a baby! We don't have any solid names, yet, but we'll keep you updated!
