Home » sick

Claire came home from school “sick” today.

The sweet nurse called to tell me she had come to her office in a miserable mood. Stomach ache.
A bad one.

When Lu and I went to pick her up she was curled up in a ball on the nurse bed, definitely looking gloomy.

So now she’s flitting around the kitchen in a pink tutu singing a very sweet song about butterflies flying away.

Hmmm. That was a miraculous recovery.

How funny! Ash did that once years ago, told the nurse her blood pressure was high. The silly nurse took her blood pressure, found it high and called me. We got into the car and Ashley said she was glad I picked her up because at "1:00 comes on" the new episode of whatever show she loved at the time!! As much as I hated to I turned the car around and took her back.

She just needed an early start to the long weekend. 🙂 Smart girl!

A girl after my own Anna's heart…

Those kind of miracles happen at my house all the time too!

Since stumbling upon your blog (through a link on a friend's blog, Britney Walker – now Basset- whose parents live in your stake in AZ), I've loved browsing your photos from time to time. I was wondering if you knew any photographers in the Salt Lake City area that you could recomment to me. I am getting married in October and for some reason just don't know many photographers in the area. I probably doesn't help that I lived in Boston for 3 years before moving to DC about 1 year ago. 🙂 At any rate, I know you're a super busy mom doing a million things. I thought I'd take a chance and send the qustion as you are a very talented photographer yourself and, I imagine, likely know some other fabulous photograhpers.

Good luck with all of your pursuits.
