Scout Camp and Strep Infections

Well we're off to a crazy week already! Matthew woke up this morning covered head to toe in a bright red rash, so we took him to the doctor and he has a strep infection. So we're quarantined in the house this week. Not the way we planned to spend the week, but what can you do? Matthew is really funny when he's sick. He absolutely refuses to admit that he doesn't feel good, even when it's obvious that he doesn't. I don't know why, he's just our tough guy I guess. So I just put a movie on for him and told him that if for some reason he feels like sitting down and watching a movie, that would be OK with me. As long as I don't mention watching the movie and resting because he's sick in the same sentence, we'll be OK. :)

Josh is off having fun today. We took him out of school so that he could go to scout camp. He started cub scouts when he turned 8 last month and he really seems to be enjoying it. I'm sure they've having a great time today, but I've been sitting here anxiously all day waiting for him to come home. I'm totally having seperation anxiety with that kid lately. He's getting so big and growing up so fast! I don't want him at scout camp shooting guns and arrows, I want him home where I can keep an eye on him 24/7 like I could when he was little! It doesn't work that way though and I'm learning to let him go out into the world without me. He's a great kid and so responsible. I don't need to worry so much about him, but what can I say, I'm a mom. That's what we do.

Anyway, so that's what is going on in our world today. Shawn is working overtime while they look for a pharmacist to replace the one that just quit, so I think we're going to be seeing a little less of him this week. He's currently hiring if you know any pharmacists that need a job! Shawn's a great boss! :) I hope that they find someone soon, so that Shawn doesn't have to do the work of two people for much longer. I miss him when he's gone!
