Inspired by Mr. McGregor of Peter Rabbit fame, Katie helped me by planting out young cabbages today. She declared that if a bunny came through our garden she wouldn't put it in a pie, she would snuggle it. We also planted broccoli, onions, and six more raspberry plants. I've got more peas to plant and four blueberry bushes, since I (once again) killed the blueberries last year.
Laura was sick all last week with a raging fever and terrible cough. Becky's been sick since Friday. Now Katie, just since this photo, is up to a 102 fever. I'm very thankful that by now I know what to expect, and I don't have to go through the panic I experienced with Laura's illness. The doctor thought it might be bacterial, but it's definitely a virus. I suspect swine flu, but I'm not taking anyone back in to confirm my suspicion.
