both kids have ear infections. both of z's ears look awful; s is at the beginning of one in one ear, and the other ear is on its way. one of z's tubes is about to fall out - it's not where it should be, and the other is blocked with pus. z & s will have oral antibiotics and z will also have antibiotic ear drops.
despite being sick, z & i still practiced the violin this morning. i returned j's violin, which we were renting, and with the credit from renting the whole year, i purchased a tenth size violin for z, because he has grown! his first one is a sixteenth size. we now own three violins for the family. he played his new violin this morning for the first time (granted, for a short 6 minutes, since he was feeling so awful, and i was so sleepy from waking up so much).
z told me that s can have his smaller violin - very sweet of him. he was also very good in the doctor's office. s was crying a lot from the doctor looking at her ears, and z gave her lots of hugs & said, "it's ok, s, it's ok." he is a good big brother (and the doctor told him so).
|one evening, after playing outside, z was really hot, so he wanted to play with less clothes. i thought it was cute.|
|from this morning - sick kiddos, eating fresh cookies out of the oven.|
|my violin, z's new violin, and the old violin (i guess s's violin now).|
|somebody has claimed her new instrument and loves carrying it around!|
