Jordan Rocks! And other stuff...

My photo of the day for Tuesday is of Brandon and Jordan sleeping in the van. Jordan stayed home from school because she had been coughing and had a terribly runny nose. The doctor said she had an upper respiratory infection, and gave her antibiotics. They fell asleep on the way to the pharmacy to get her medicine. Here they are...



Wednesday I had to go to the school for Jordan's IEP. I am pleased to announce that she will be in a "normal" class next year instead of integrated or special education. She is a brilliant little bugger, and I was worried about how much actual education she would get in a special needs class. They will have to make some accommodations for her handicap, but she is a determined girl, and I am sure we will work it all out.

After I got home from the IEP, I tried to cook dinner. Brandon was crying because he did not get a decent nap, and Jordan was trying to comfort him by kissing and hugging on him. He got even madder, so what did I do? Grabbed my camera of course. Jordan really tried to make him feel better.



Today, Jordan wanted to go to school again, and even though she had a bit of a runny nose, I decided to let her go. I probably should not have, because I got a call at lunch time to go pick her up. She told the teacher during P.E. that she was having a hard time breathing. We came home, and I worked in the yard cleaning up the flower beds while she played in the rocks. Since she was little, she has always loved playing in the rocks on the walkway and driveway to our home. I saw a layout the other day by a friend of mine (Jill), and her daughter is the same way. She scrapped it, and I thought it was an excellent idea. So when Jordan settled down to play in the rocks, I grabbed my camera, and snapped away. I had a hard time deciding on which shot to include so I am uploading two. The first one is the one I chose as POTD, and the other is just for fun.



I love the contrast between her dainty little hands and the chalky rocks.



We have been preparing for Brandon's 2nd birthday party on Saturday. I cleaned the entire house from top to bottom yesterday, and today I worked outside for a while. I still have to clean the BBQ pit. That is not going to be fun. Wish me luck, I had better get busy before the sun goes down.

Hugs!
Thanks for stopping by,
Heather

That's great news about Jordan's schooling! Upper respiratory infection is no fun for daughter or Mommy, I know my dd had that in October. Hope everyone is feeling better real soon! Thanks so much for the comment on my blog!
