Sean got sick in the car on the way home from school Wednesday evening. We'd been on our way to a basketball game. Daddy and Sis (Caitlin's new name for herself) went to the game, while Sean and I enjoyed a Caillou marathon.
After a sleepless night, the bug passed. Sean woke up happy and hungry. I stayed home from work with him. By mid morning it was clear that he was fine.
We ran some errands. Sean loves his sister, but he really likes time alone.
I'm just thankful the stomach bug passed quickly and without incident.
With any luck, Sis will not get it!

After Halloween we found some sticky mice on clearance. I'd planned to use them at school for a project, but we opened one for the kids to play with.
The tail has gone missing, but Sean doesn't care. He throws this thing all over the place. The Iriahman are frequently mistaking the thing for an insect or poop or some other questionable object.
If he is lucky the mouse lands on the ceiling. For days at a time Sean will point up and say, "Mouse on the ROOF!"
Usually the mouse stays there until he can talk Daddy into helping him. This morning he found the cardboard tube from our new area rug.
He is feeling quite independent!
Such a clever little guy!

Last week, we headed to B's house after school. The fountain was clean and ready for fish. My two little ones were SO excited!
We picked up my grandmother and brought her to the pet shop. Each kid picked out a fish.
When we got back, we floated the bag and ate popcorn while we waited for the fish to adjust.
Going to B's house is a treat anytime, but they really enjoyed the fish, too!
After our "date day" we wanted to do something special with the kids. The bikes were still in the back of the van, so we stopped at the trail by the library on our way home.
The kids both started on bikes, but Sean soon decided it was more fun to run after Sissy.
They stopped to smell the flowers.

PWith one month to go, we kicked off our St. Patrick's Day celebrations yesterday.
When Caitlin got to school she tried to tell everyone that it was St. Patricks Day and not President's Day. Oops!
The Irishman and I both had the day off, so we had a date day. We don't really have a babysitter, so we try to take advantage of these days the couple of time a year that it happens.
We'd planned to go to a movie, but changed our minds. Shamrock Shakes on the beach? Yes, please!
