Welcome back, thermostat of my young child's body. We've missed you so.

My daughter's temperature finally returned to normal early this afternoon (at that point it had only been running 99.5) and now she will be able to attend arts camp!  She is so excited!  I'm excited for her.  She's missed it so much.

I've disassembled sick bay, stripped her bed, cleaned and swept her room and while the desk is still staring at me, in need of much love, I'll get to that tomorrow.  Rome wasn't built in a day, you know.

K- and I were in and out today.  She played with chalk, caught butterflies and ran around.  We saw tiger swallowtails, a monarch, a ton of cabbage whites, Peck's skippers, silver spotted and an American lady.  I wanted to give her body a good test in the heat and dreadful humidity to see how well it would regulate.  She sweated up a storm and did just fine.  In fact, we attended the program at the library this evening.  She was able to choose her prize from the prize box.  We got a call last week that she won, but hadn't been able to come to retrieve it.  In true K- fashion, she chose an Amelia Bedelia book-- Amelia Bedelia for Mayor to be exact.  How we love Amelia Bedelia in our house!

She'll go on to arts camp tomorrow and I'll scoot back to get some things done.  I've got to run by the license bureau to pick up new tags, then home to give the house a good scrubbing.  I would love to throw open the windows, but it is supposed to be dreadfully hot tomorrow, so another airing will have to wait. 

In the meantime, we rejoice that K- is well.  Hooray!

So glad that she's feeling better and that the fever finally broke. Hope she enjoys the rest of camp and summer illness free :)
