Sick and Graduation

Well, last Friday was Addison's last day of preschool for the summer. That evening they were having a potluck and had a little program that all the kids were participating in. The older kids were doing the three billy goats gruff, and the younger kids were each a monster in this little rhyme about colors. Addison was "Pink, Pink, sat in the sink."

I feel really stupid, but I was looking forward to this SOOOOOOOO much! I was seriously so excited. I was going to pin pink balloons to one of her pink pajamas. Addison even said, "Pink Pink Sink!"

On Friday when I went to pick her up, Robyn & Nyla said they thought something was wrong with her. She just laid down on the ground and didn't want to move. When I got there, she was just laying on the couch listless. I went over to her and felt her forehead. She didn't have a fever, but then she started to cough, and she coughed so hard she threw up.

I thought it was just a one time thing. I took her home and put her to bed. She slept for about an hour, then woke up. She seemed really happy when she woke up. Since she hadn't really eaten much lunch at Robyn's, I put her in her high chair and gave her some applesauce. She eagerly ate about two bites, then rapidly threw it up. Then she drank some water...and threw that up. This happened all through the afternoon. I kept telling myself, "Okay, if she just gets a little better, we can at least go and do her part." Yeah, she did not get better.

I had signed up to bring carrots, so I sadly left Addison with Bart and took the carrots to the potluck. I stayed for a little bit and taped the program so Addison could see all her friends over the summer.

When I came home Addison threw up again. I pretty much spent the next 45 minutes cleaning throw up. When the potluck was supposed to be over I ran back to it to grab my bowl. When I got home, Addison was fine. She was running around, eating, looking for bugs, pretty much just being her happy self...Right after the potluck ended!!! I guess she just wasn't meant to go. Oh well. There is always next year.

On Tuesday we headed out to Moab for Leonard's graduation. It was nice, except that I got sick. So not fun. Oh well. We were able to get a family picture with all of Bart's family, so that was good.
Leonard's graduation was pretty awesome. It was outside and the weather was perfect. There was a storm coming in the distance, so it was a beautiful sunset too! It was pretty cool. Here are some pictures.

Rebecca, i am so sorry about Addison's sickness! I know how much you were looking forward to that "Pink Pink Sink!" Also, I love your blog. ;o)

That is so sad!! I can completely see how you would be excited for her part. How ironic that she was acting normal once you got back. I'm glad, though, that it wasn't some terrible sickness!
