Man, I am trying so hard to catch up on everyone's blogs, and you all are so prolific that it's really, really hard!!!!!
I found out that Patrick has a field trip on the same day as Josie's, to the National Zoo in DC. Since DH is having surgery the week before, and I'll be in Annapolis that day with Josie, neither of us will be going with him. I'm trying not to freak out about this. That's a loooonnngggg day for them (9-5), and I know my boy - he wants to do his own thing. At least he'll still have his cast one, which will 1- prevent him from breaking at least one of his arms, 2-make him easier to spot for his chaperone, since he'll have a day-glo green thing on his arm, and 3-make him less attractive to kidnappers, since a cast is hard to hide. I'm a little concerned about how hot it's going to be, or if it's going to be rainy, since it can't get wet, and being out in the hot sun all day with it would be really sweaty and awful, too. Plus, there's very little shade there, and not a lot of places to get drinks. My big hope is that my friend, Kristi, will go with them, because she has twins in that class, and Patrick is best friends with one of them. I'm going to email her and find out. She's the kind of person that I can trust not only to watch him, but also to make sure that they're drinking and going to the bathroom, etc.
So, are we freaking about swine flu? I'm not sure. Part of me is very nervous, since it seems likely that it's going to go through the whole population, but since everyone in the US has been fine from it so far, it doesn't seem like something that's too scary, yet. I know a lot of people in Mexico have died, but I suspect that they live in places where the medical treatment is poor. At least, that's what I'm telling myself. Ohm.
Nothing else all that new to report. I'm just having a good time reading all your stuff, you prolific people!
