Yearbook misprint

Bummer. H and I went over to the printer this evening to pick up the Yearbooks, and they were all wrong They had not used the new CD, and there were font errors that had not appeared in the proof copy. Oh well, at least we don't need the final books until Monday.

So yesterday was still Shavuot. I took the kids to shul again, but this time it was the Adult B'nai Mitzvah class. I have many friends in the class (adults who never celebrated a Bar or Bat Mitzvah - three are converts, a few grew up in Orthodox shuls where girls did not celebrate, a few were not observant growing up). So I told the boys "Be Good" and let them go play with their friends (the boys hang out in the chapel, playing cards, or go outside to bounce a ball against the wall), and I put Sofia in babysitting, and I got to sit in services for nearly 2 hours. Yeah!

Lunch was at shul, very nice, and then I took my 3 plus another boy home. Sofia fell asleep in the car immediately, so as soon as E arrived to babysit, I took the boys off to my friend J's house to go swimming. It was in the upper 90s, very very hot!

Swam, visited, had fun (although the weather gave me an awful migraine). Then took the boys to Tae Kwan Do, then took the extra kid (also a Sam) home, and his mom made us dinner. Their daughters both have crushes on my Sammy - the little one insists she's going to marry him. He seems to enjoy their attention.

Today, Miss Sofia popped a fever over 100, so she stayed out of school. We ran some errands (she'd gone down the slide at the boys' school at drop-off, and gotten soaked, so I took her to Target for more shorts), went to the mall (I got my new sunglasses, and a sundress for the trip), and then to the pediatrician. Dr. H had to dig wax out of both ears, and we also found...uh...something in one ear. It was either dried blood or a part of a bug. It didn't look like dried blood to me! Yuch!

Poor Sofia was screaming bloody murder while I held her and doc dug. Once the ears were clear, doc could see infection, so now Sofia is on Amox again. Hopefully her fever will go down by tomorrow (yes, giving Tylenol also).

This evening we picked up David at work and met my friend R and one of her daughters at Bugaboo Creek for dinner. Fun. Then we came home, started the bedtime routine, and then H came to take me to the printers.

This time next week, David and I will be on our way to Tahiti!!!!!!
