Bard Slapped

Devlin has been home sick for a couple days, so I decided to see how much I could make Shakespeare spin in his grave.  And for the record, it is NOT in iambic pentameter.  I kept it close, but I'm not that much of a masochist....

Ear Wars

Devlin got a double ear infection.  So I finally got to use this idea that I've been saving for him for about a year, since he didn't miss any school last year.

I originally tried doing this on PowerPoint to animate the scroll and got it to work, but then realized I had no idea how to post it here or get it to the teacher.

Virus of the Month Club

I was joking that Sophie gets a new virus every month when school is in session.  I tried putting that in a standard style note, but it just wasn't working for me.  Then I noticed the pamphlet template in Word and I decided to play with it.

We were actually worried that Sophie had the Enterovirus this time.  It triggered her asthma something fierce.  But, as usual, just as I started to freak out she got better.  And gave it to me....

Final Frontier

So, this one was a bit of a last minute effort, but the picture really makes it.

Sick Note: The Movie

February 20, 2014

So Monday was President's Day, which is usually a day off for the kids.  But they needed a makeup day for all the snow days, so they chose Monday.  Then we got a lot of snow and they declared it a snow day.  Who says the universe doesn't have a sense of irony?  So by Monday night, Sophie wasn't feeling well.  Then she had a fever which set off her asthma.  Three days and three prescriptions later, she is finally ready to go to school.  That is, if they have school tomorrow, because we are having yet another snowmageddin and they have already delayed classes....

But here is the note.  It is the first one I've had to email to the teacher because I don't want to spend $50 replacing ink cartridges for the printer.  

And yes, I used the names of her music teacher for music, art teacher for art direction, etc.  It fit too well.  Thanks to Jeremy for the brainstorming for the rest of the credits....
