First week of summer break~

Don't you just love the first week of summer break.  There is an excitement about it.  Typically plans are a laid out for all the fun that will be had during the weeks that the kids are out of school.  There are family vacations, projects, days spent with friends, trips to the beach, and pool parties.  There are zoo, amusement park and  museum visits.  The kids stay up late and from time to time sleep in late. The schedules relax and the days full.  The fun that will be had is anticipated by all.  

Our first week, or at least Bella's first week, of summer vacation  looks nothing like what I described above.  Nope her first week was spent in bed.

Since Tuesday she has been running a fever and fighting a pretty nasty summer cold.  

On the positive, we have gotten to catch up on our reading ~

Tumtum and Nutmeg:

This book is adorable, imaginative, just good old fashion story telling done right.  Bella and I highly recommend it!!

Hopefully soon I will be posting about all the fun activities we have plan for the summer but until then I am content with soothing my little girl as best as I can and filling the hours and her imagination up with  wonderful stories.

Have a beautiful summer friends~ keep posting your activities, I so enjoy reading them!

Those nasty summer colds are the worst... hoping she feels better very soon!

Feel better soon sweet Bella!

Oh, poor girl. I sure hope Bella is feeling better!! For a kid, there's nothing worse than laying inside when you can hear all the laughter and playing going on outside.

BTW, I think Nolan caught the same bug today. He is running a fever and feels horrible. (And my husband rarely gets sick!) He absolutely can't be sick and WE can't be sick this week b/c we'll be quarantined in China!!! Bug, bug, go away!
