Lexis has pneumonia.

Lexis is home today sick. Pray for her she is pretty miserable.

Well Lexis started coughing about 4 days ago. She wanted to stay home from school yesterday but I told her she wasn't sick so she had to go. I gave her an allergy pill and sent her on her way. Well the school called while I was at the dentist with Emeline. (She had a bad toothache.) The nurse said that Lexis had a fever and I needed to come and get her. I explained where I was and told her I would be there as soon as I could. I then called Grandma Helmick and asked her if she would go get Lex. When I got home she was coughing non-stop. I took her temperature and it was 102! Brian had to work so I called my Mom to stay with the girls while I took her to the doctor.

The doctor immediately wanted xrays. Her lungs didn't sound right to him. So off we went. Luckily the hospital wasn't busy and we got in and out of xray very fast. The doctor said her right lung was hazy and her left one had mucus in it. I felt so bad. So pneumonia and I thought she was faking! Poor girl. He prescribed some antibodics and told her to rest.
Here is how she is looking right now. She loves Subway so we got that for her. She is finally getting her appetite back.

She is such a trouper. Good news is she will have a long weekend to heal. They are off on Monday becasue of Labor Day!

The Choir Audition.

I took Lexis to her first Choir audition last night. I was nervous for her but she was pretty calm. I asked her if it was okay if I went in with her. "No Mom" was her reply. When they called her name I got up too. I wanted to be there. The teacher led us into a very small room. The only thing in it was a piano and a chair. I sat on the chair and didn't look at Lexis. She was instructed to stand by the piano. She asked her to sing some scales on the piano. She was to go higher and higher with her voice each time. The teacher would sing then Lexis would repeat. Then she did the lower scale. Next it was time for Lex to sing, "My Country Tis of Thee." Tears welled up in my eyes as I listened to my daughter sing. She was all grown up. I was very impressed. Next she had to clap a few rhythmic beats. Lexis got 3 of the 4 right. Last she had to repeat after the teacher lulu notes. I believe she got all 4 of those right. The audition only lasted about 5 minutes. I was so proud of her. I waited until we were out in the Suburban to tell her I was happy she did this and that she did great!

They said we will get a letter in the mail on Friday letting us know if she made it or not. I'm excited for her.

Lexis is a wonderful singer. She takes after her Mother. I love to sing!

Lexis loves to make things. She is constantly making up supper menus so we can all choose what we want to eat. Pretty soon she will be helping make every meal. I love letting the kids help. This way no one can complain about their toppings!
