On Tuesday afternoon, Ryan complained that he was itching. I ignored him because (1) he tends to itch a lot and (2) he seemed to itch the most when he was asked to do something. Put away his shoes? No, of course he can't because he itches. Well eventually I looked and he seemed to be getting a rash under his arms, on his stomach, and in the groin area. Soon I saw a bit on his face. It spread and seemed to get worse. I gave him benedryl and put him in a cool bath. I asked Rob to find out what is available here to help with itching. Evidently not much, but he brought some zinc oxide home. More benedryl and a body coated with zinc oxide had him comfortable enough to sleep. By the time I got ready for bed and checked on him, he was cleared up. Go figure.
|Isn't he pathetic looking?|
|It got a lot worse than this, but no naked shots for the blog.|
|This is Justin's first of three boxes. He made bridges to connect them.|
|Ryan didn't get quite as into it, but he had fun adding to J's so I gave him his own.|
I bought some straws for a project we are going to do. It was cheaper for me to get 500 straws than 100, so we have plenty of straws. These were individually wrapped and I need them unwrapped. We had fun shooting the straw paper off of our straws and seeing how far we could get them to fly. Justin was the champion. He could even shoot off multiple straws at a time.
We also made cookies. Well, I made the cookies and the boys got to help frost some of them.
|Ryan made some pretty scary ones, right?|
|Plenty of pumpkins so we could share and have our own. :)|
After that, we went to church to help clean it and get it ready for Sunday. The boys would have been in the way more than they helped so we parked them on chairs and let them play on the iphone and ipod while we worked. When we were finished, we headed to KFC for lunch. Who could ask for a better treat than that? The boys were excited. Funny how we don't go to KFC in the US, but when that is your fast food option, all of the sudden it is awesome. Justin is eating more lately and Ryan less. Funny to have their roles reversed, but Justin probably needs to eat a bit more if he is going to get taller. Don't know that he could get much thinner. We went to Yum Yum Doughnuts after KFC and got ice cream as a treat.
|J loves to pose making funny faces.|
|Ryan has to try to be as funny as Justin.|
|I think this building is interesting and since we were stopped at a red light I took a pic.|
