My daughter has not caught the cold that we all had. Instead, she has strep throat that presented itself yesterday as an earache. Her throat doesn't hurt, just her ear. I don't want to speak too soon, because she might get the cold as well, so pretend I didn't say anything about that. So anyway, the kids have missed a few days of school lately, taking turns. If she takes tomorrow off, she'll be as behind as her younger brother because he missed 2 days last week. We'll get done with school eventually, we always do.
