Excused Absence

Day One of our Thanksgiving started out with sick kids home from school.  Technology took their minds of their ailments, which had kept them and others up in the night. 
After taking two big girls to school, I had to return to bring one home.  Papa Ben spent the day reading The Report Card aloud to Kate, who was not in the mood for anything else.
When I looked for Jane at lunch time, I found her sound asleep on the floor. We covered her up and left her.
Casper decided he would join the horizontal crowd.

Meet my new best friend.
Ella came home from school full of vim and vinegar.  She uses Casper as a stress-releaser.  He's happy with his job.
By the end of the day, recovery was apparent, which bodes well for the weekend.
