MC:Seven and a Half

March 4th: Oh My Gracious..SEVEN and a HALF. I mean's already been six months since your birthday and its now only 6 months till you're EIGHT. That is a big ole hard pill for this mommy to swallow! You have just a few short weeks left in first grade and you will be on your way to second grade! You love school so much and take such pride in not missing a day. Your school closed for four straight days due to ice and snow and you were so worried your teacher was counting you absent for those days! When the ice and snow finally left and you could go back you got sick! I mean really sick and it scared me and daddy! You fever shot up to way....that can't be possible.....took it again and it was 105.6. We quickly gave you some medicine and stuck ya in the tub. I was a nervous wreck with your fever being that high.  Luckily the meds and bath got it down to 102. It did that for two days and we were always able to get it down. But on Monday you stayed with Nana and she called just minutes before 5pm and said it wouldn't come down. I called your doctor and she said we are about to close, get her to the ER or after hours care NOW! So  Daddy came and scooped ya up and took ya to our after hours clinic! Thankfully they ruled out Meningitis! Your flu test came back negative but they really felt it was a false negative since you had all the signs of type B flu. You were so sick and weak, you missed another three more days of school! On Thursday when you felt good enough to go was canceled due to more ice and snow and then was canceled for that Friday. You were so worried you had missed too much school and were going to be behind. I love that you are so studious!

 I think it was below freezing when we took these pictures and you were shaking! You who LOVE to take pictures said....I'm done mom; that's enough for now! Cracked me up!
 You have REFUSED to get your hair cut and I have gone along with it until now! I have no problem with you growing it out for locks of love but it's getting out of control; so you will be getting good trim in the next week or so!

 WOW 7 1/2..........just seems unreal to me!
By the time I got Kinley out of dance and Creed loaded up and we made it the after hours clinic this is what I found! Your sweet old daddy taking the best care of you!

 This past weekend I ran my first 5K since Creed was born.  I woke up to find made me breakfast and the sweetest sign! I love that it says Good Lucky and not Good Luck.....makes it even "specialer"to me!
And you even made daddy breakfast and a sweet note too!
This weekend you ran the our local 4H's kids mile run! This was your third year to do this; you always look forward to it! And this year you thought you were super cool because Aunt Ashley let you wear her hot pink head wrap!
I have NEVER seen so much ice and snow on the ground in March in my whole life! We litterally had to dodge ice patches during the race!
Love these crazy wild kidos!
And GK showed up in her NEON Green Wig to brighten our day up!

Start that you and MG and Kin are all holding hands!
I ran in the back with Kinley and you wanted to run all by yourself! About 1/2 a mile in I saw Mrs. Bethany taking care of you and waving at me.  I ran up to check on you.  Your hands were scrapped a little but nothing bad. I asked if you wanted to stop and walk to daddy or finish the race. You said you wanted to finish it. I so impressed that you wanted to keep on. You did so good; you caught right back up and even finished 2nd for your age!!!! After the race we discovered your legs were all cut up and bleeding.  I felt so bad that you had continued the race with them like that. I was EVEN more impressed with your dedication when I saw had bad they were! You're such a trooper MC!
MG got 1st, you got 2nd, Joja got 3rd and GK got forth! So proud of you girls!
You are soooooo over the vacuuming thing which really stinks for me..........but you LOVE to sweep and then use the dust mop.......which is FANTASTIC!!!!! You are such a big help to me MC. I probably don't tell ya enough how thankful I am that you have such a helpful and serving heart! It sure makes my day easier and me one proud mommy! Love you Claire Bear!
