the big bad flu and some layouts



so, the flu is hitting hard here in the illinois world. my littlest peanut has been sick with a fever and cough since sunday and most likely won't be back in school until friday. at my school, i have been missing 4-6 kids for the last week. the chick down the hall only had FIVE kids in class yesterday. five. that is crazy talk! here's to hoping all the hand washing, antibacterial pumps, and disinfectant sprays are working.
oh, and go check out the unity blog today for FAN-FLIPPIN-TASTIC sales. :) http://www.theunitystampco.blogspot.com/
stamps used:
ACE IN THE HOLE
IPOD TOUCH

Monika in VA said...

Hope your littlest peanut is feeling better real soon! No fun being sick ~ but sometimes I just wish my kiddos would just get sick to get it over with ~ I'm always asking who is sick now at school, cause usually the sniffles will begin soon after ~ who thinks to disinfect a desk right after a kid has sneezed?

Great LOs, btw... :)
