I had a crazy schedule this week. I did my usual field trips, but usually it is only one place 4 times and then a pool trip 4 times. This week we had the opportunity to go to the Allen County 4-H fair one day for free so I mixed it up. We also visited a local play-place hat had moved into a bookstore and I was pleasantly surprised at how well liked it (except for one nasty girl I had to take down a notch), but that was too young for my oldest group so we headed to Black Pine Animal Park for their trip. I love Black Pine and blogged about it after our trip last year. If you live in the area and have not been there, you really should go. I was sad to learn that many animals passed since last season, ones that had been around for a long time, but was thrilled to see old favorites. . .
I also worked long days since one of our supervisors was on vacation, fixed a window Dustin broke (myself, thank you), went to the dermatologist because my lumps are still not gone, went to the doctor because I now have MRSA* (thanks Dustin), shopped for school clothes and supplies (ugh), and, my favorite part of the week, found 2 kids in the same family with REALLY BAD cases of head lice. Ahhhh, the joys of daycare . . .
It has seemed like a stressful and disjointed week, but it wasn't really all that bad. I just hope this week is easier . . .
* by the way, Dustin complained about how badly the boils hurt, and I thought he was being overly dramatic because usually he doesn't feel much pain. Yeah, he wasn't exaggerating, they hurt like a mother! Sorry dude!
