The boys and I have been trading around a sickness, but miraculously Lila and Ryan have been spared. I'm the only one with a lingering sore throat and it's alllllmost gone, so I daresay Lila and Ryan are going to escape unscathed.
And, on a happy note, Ashie had been scheduled to take his classroom's chicks home for the weekend on a day he ended up staying home sick. His teachers still let us come pick up the chicks, though, and take them home (he was really worried about that). We christened the chicks Yellowest Yellow (Lila's choice), Caramel (Reed's choice), and Blackbeard (Asher's choice). The chicks were adorable and pooped a ton. And we kept them all alive.
The next day was Saturday, and clearly Asher was feeling better because he mustered up the strength to create this glorious chocolate cake with Ryan. He came up with the pose.
