Mysterious Illness Sweeps Through School; All Classes Cancelled

Administrators Fear Teaching Staff May Be Next to Fall Ill

Yes, there are still sick people here. Kid2 is on the mend, but Kid1 is still wrapped in blankets with a fever.

Have you ever told people that your homeschooled kids are sick, and gotten a, "gee, I wonder where they caught it?" with a strong hint of unspoken, "since you keep them isolated from the rest of the world," hanging there in the air?

So far this week we have missed homeschool day at the Science Museum, dance class, homeschool day at Skyzone , a dance class they had received an invitation to try, and a piano lesson. I was starting to get a touch of cabin fever from all of this at-home time, but I think I might be coming down with some stomach thingy, so I'm sort of looking forward to spending today at home.

We had stocked up on books over the past couple of weeks, so if you need us we'll be cuddled up on the couch reading.
