Tuesday, Elliot came down with a fever, but by the end of the day, he was fine and we continued our Camp Elliot plans. On Thursday, we met friends for breakfast and he was complaining of an itchy foot. It looked like he had a bunch of ant bites. The next day, he had a rash all over his feet, hands and his mouth. It clicked immediately. This kid has hand, foot and mouth disease. UGH! Contagious for an annoying amount of time! (And, sadly, he gave it to his friend we had breakfast with). So, while Joel is off to Peru and everyone is showing of their darling red, white and blue fourth of July pics, we are stuck in doors with HFMD! No sparklers, no swimming, no hot dogs. Just an annoying virus to ruin our plans. We sported our jammies all day, ate whatever we had in the pantry and watched movies all day. Good times had by all!
