it was a pretty nice month. we got to enjoy some slightly cooler days. i thought autumn would NEVER come. here, we went on a gorgeous leaf-lined drive for about an hour and enjoyed Sprewell Bluff. had a picnic & did some exploring:
we also hiked up stone mountain. jovie didn’t even need a piggyback from The Mr. she did GREAT. and it is STEEP!!
then jovie enjoyed going to school on a monday and then not again until the monday after thanksgiving! after 3 days of being home, went to doctor. turns out—- she had strep throat! one dose of antibiotics and the fever, headaches & dizzy went away! so we had a loooonnng vacation and enjoyed it! (once she felt all better)… perfectly great & ready for thanksgiving! it was a fantastic holiday (tho, as you can see, very serious stuff indeed….)
we had fun meeting our Greenville friends at that same sliding hill park. unfortunately, jovie’s penpal may have moved because we haven’t heard from her. jovie & kemp (and the rest of her family) enjoyed each other! it’s been YEARS.
then after being home for about 2 weeks, jovie went to school on monday. we had a nice field trip on tuesday. then yesterday she stayed home from school. AGAIN. we didn’t wait this time. i took her to the doctor. AGAIN. turns out she has strep. AGAIN. ?????
so today is the best kind of sick day, a “mandatory” sick day and she feels great. it’s december so we can watch christmas movies. BONUS.
