  • A total of 6. 2 for the first couple of days of school.... for a family reunion, 1 for "the dot" as my dd calls it, and 3 for the flu and some nasty hives she got with the flu.

  • Due to illness neither have missed school but they have both missed school due to non-illness related reasons. The seniors had Senior Skip day in Nov. and one stayed home from school for the whole day and the other went to school in the morning because of a Math test and then when he came home for lunch he never went back to school. They went out to lunch with about 30 other seniors (class of 41) and hung out at Target for a bit...exciting, I know, LOL And then they both went to S.A.D.D. camp last month and one missed 2 days because he had to go a day earlier since he was a counselor and the other only missed 1 day.
