Bugs, germs, and generational shift

As a kid I remember that I loved sick days at home with mom. I would pile up a few stacks of books and twenty of more stuffed animals around myself in bed or on the couch and I would read andrest.

Now, my own kids are home for a day and what is it like?

They want to go to school.

I love that they love their school so much. More than once they have pushed ahead through the morning, dragging themselves to school because they didn't want to miss out. I am so grateful they are having a good experience.
