Best Friends ~ Best Shot Monday

Last week was a very rough week for our little Em. Not that great a week for Mommy and Addie either. It started out as a bit of a sickly week – both girls were in the pediatrician’s office at 9am on Monday morning. Addie had been battling a cold for a week or so, and Em had a bit of one, but it didn’t seem nearly as bad as Addie’s.

Until Sunday when I suspected that Em may have a little bout of pink-eye and I was unfortunately correct. Plus, she also had an ear infection on top of it. So a little stop at the pharmacy and a lot of rest and mid-week we all seemed to be doing better.

Then Friday morning Em made it into my room to tell me she was going to be sick, and back into the bathroom before throwing up (ah, such a good girl!). We thought it was just from coughing, a lot of times she makes herself sick, I guess she doesn’t have a very high gag reflex.

She assured me that she was fine and could go to school that day. Why? Because her Spring Program (that her class had spent months practicing for) was Friday evening. So we skipped school took it easy and rested instead, and were able to make it to the program.

So, last week did not provide a lot of inspiration for photo-taking. We were very, very light in the photo department. And all weekend we just sort of hung around – I think my camera and I just kind of needed a little break. I did get this shot while the little starlets were waiting to take the stage on Friday…

(L to R: Chloe, Em, and Ella)

This is part of Em’s little “clique” at her school. There are five girls who have really become fast friends and they are all such sweet girls and so very kind to Addie when she tries to tag along with the “big girls.” And more importantly, their moms are also so awesome. I really look forward to school, dance and playdates, almost as much as the girls do.

Oh, yeah – and the Spring Program! It went off without a hitch and Em did great. J. actually snuck up front and got some photos and video so I’ll try to get the footage off of his camera and post it so you can see our little cowgirls in action. (They did a Bible verse, the days of the week in Spanish, and sang “Turkey in the Straw” complete with cowboy hats…it was mighty cute!)

Hopefully this week we will get back into the land of the living and have some good stuff for you. Meanwhile, don’t forget to stop over at Tracey’s and see what everyone else has been up to this fine Monday.
