Phone calls from the school during the school day are never good

Just when I thought things were finally settling down and we could catch our breath from all the Gavin drama this morning, Lizze gets a phone call. Elliott is in the school office with a fever and needs to come home. I had to drop what I was doing to retrieve him from the office and bring him home. Of course, I would drop everything to retrieve one of my kids, what parent wouldn’t?

Elliott isn’t feeling well, but I’m glad that we were able to make him more comfortable.

I’m currently waiting for Emmett to come out of the school and he’s going to be a bit flustered because he doesn’t like surprises. This will probably throw him off and make waves in his world for a little while. Hopefully, he will adapt and not experience too much distress over this little hiccup in his day.

I would really like to get off the ride for a little while. The ups and downs are killing me. I’m exhausted and feeling the stress.
