Fever, Fever GO AWAY!

Poor Justin. This kid always seems to get weird sicknesses that just come out of no were. Saturday all day he had a low fever (101.5) it has been really hot (high 80's low 90's) so that doesn't help.

Robin and the boy's came to swim with us in the afternoon and I let Justin go to help cool him off (we only swam about a hour). He has been eating and drinking fine and acting fine too so I didn't think much of it. Then at about 4pm out of no where his fever shoots up to 103. We gave him some Motrin to help bring it down but it never went under 101. Then before bed at 9pm it was back up to 103. We gave him some more meds and sent him to bed.

He slept all night, and when I got up this morn to get ready for church both kids where still asleep (so we stayed home just in case Sky was sick too). Poor Justin slept till 8:45 (not like him at all) and woke up with a fever of 104.2 and saying he was dizzy.

As of now we are just watching him. The Doc thinks he might just have a cold or be dehydrated but we need to keep a close eye on the fever. If it gets to 105 we need to run him to the ER and if he still has a fever tomorrow we need to get him in to the Doc first thing.

I know fevers are good it means your body is doing what its supposed to, but its so scary when it last so long and keeps getting higher. And so frustrating when there are NO other symptoms to give you a clue of what he could have.

New school year

Its official Justin is a 2nd grader!!! I cant believe how fast time fly's once your kids are in school. So this year Justin will have 2 teachers. His main teacher is on maternity leave till the end of November, so right now he has a sub. He loves his sub and has been able to meet his teacher and really likes her too (she came on the first day of school to introduce her self and will come again to class one day next week to get to know the kids).
I'm excited to see what challenges are awaiting Justin with school this year. He is really excited about math and his reading has gotin really good, but I know he isn't a fan of all the work and homework. Hopefully this teacher will make it fun and exciting for him.
He was very happy to find he has some friends from last year in his class again (yep it got worked out that his friend Sara is in his class again too :) ).
I'm excited to see what this year has in store for us. Skyla is also in her last year of joy school and will be at school with Justin next year. I can all ready feel the water works going on that thought.

Disneyland (lots of pics)

We took off to Disneyland on the 15th and it was AWESOME!!! We stayed for 4 nights 5 days and hit the park all 5 days. Needless to say this weekend we have done nothing :).

The day we got there we had dinner in Downtown Disney at the ESPN zone. They have great food, TV's all over (so mick got to watch his Bills preseason game during dinner) and a VERY fun arcade up stairs.

After dinner we went to California Adventure to see the electrical parade.

Candy sure makes the wait time easier :)

After the parade we went in to Disneyland to hit some rides.

Monday was my birthday and it was so cool to spend it in Disneyland with My family. Mick was so sweet and got me Mickey earrings and a matching necklace and these really cute Pink sequence Mickey ears. Plus I had a button that said Happy Birthday on it. It was loads of fun :) thanks for making my day special sweetie.

After 3 1/2 days in the parks poor Mick was beat. We got a 5 day pass for the price of a 3 and I decited to use it. The day we where leaving we didnt have to check out till 11 so I got the kids up at 7am and we hit Toon town morning maddness and a few rides before check out (mick got to sleep in and did he need the sleep).
Wait for the show to start
Toon Town Morning maddness is a fun show and you get time with some chariters. The kids just love it.
We got to meet Mickey

Then we just explored and had fun.Can you find Justin in the pic?

After Toon Town we took the Monarail to Downtown Disney to do some last min shopping.
We found a cute face painting stand so I let the kids go for it. Little did I know the black pain would stain Justin's face for about 3 days hehehe.

We love you Disneyland.
