Gayve You A Picture

A couple of you wondered how in the world I could still be sick. And I totally have an answer for you - I have Absolutely No Idea. I was starting to get better. The Tongginator was ALL better. The Husband managed to avoid it entirely.

And then... WHAM!

Actually, don't be surprised if the Tongginator's school closes for a few days. I heard through the neighborhood grapevine that a fourth grade math class of 27 students was down to eight students on Monday. I know!

I kept the Tongginator home from school yesterday. Her fever was a low-grade one, but her cough sounded quite impressive. She is back at school today, now with no fever and a slightly less impressive cough. She missed Ms. Confetti quite a bit during her one-day hiatus, so she decided to draw a little something for her beloved teacher...

Tongginator art, October 2009

Don't you love the ruled paper? Oh... and that line of rainbow whatevers on the bottom row... those are hearts, y'all. I mean, just in case you didn't know.


Raina said...

I would cry tears of joy if presented with such beautiful artwork!

Carla said...

Oh that is just too precious! I be Ms. Confetti loves it.

Aus said...

Of course they are hearts - what else would they be <3! And as a teacher - well - that would be one that goes in the 'keep forever' box!

hugs - aus and co.

Buckeroomama said...

Aww, that's so sweet of her!

I love that she writes so deliberately, keeping to the lines. :)

Wade's World said...

What a sweetie!!

Aunt LoLo said...

Oh, those are TOTALLY hearts.

Or peaches.

They could be peaches. Yeeaaaahhhh....

Rachel@just another day in paradise said...

totally hears and they are precious! Feel better soon! (Quit sucking on petri dishes--they're not lollipops, you know!) : )

LaLa said...

Love her note...hmmm, peaches..well if they could be that then you know what else they look like...drive through Ga sometime and see that "booty shaped" water tower : )

I am sure her teacher loved it and I hope you get better soon!

Of course they are hearts!! They are perfect! I would love if she had gayve them to me!!!!

Mama King said...

Any teacher would just eat that up! What a sweet heart she is!

Half Gaelic, Half Garlic! said...

She is so sweet....

I am sure Ms. Confetti loved her beautiful picture!

Hope you all are feeling a little better.



Mei-Ling said...

Not to insult your daughter, but I *didn't* figure out the hearts were... heart.

Holly said...

I am impressed with her phonetic spelling. Seriously!
And I love that she made her own ruled paper! Kids rock!

Laura L. said...

Sweet. :) I love the ruled paper. Hee hee.
I'm glad she is feeling better. Now it's YOUR TURN! Get well soon.

jennifer said...

That is so sweet! I hope you're feeling better soon.

Wanda said...

Of course they're hearts! We knew THAT!

The note is adorable. What pleasure Ms Confetti must get from your T this year.

So, get better will'ya!

Jean said...

Love the ruled paper, the phonetic spelling and the message- does it get any better? I think not! Truly precious!

The hearts do remind me of babies bottoms but them maybe I need new glasses!

Still sick... good question. Son #4 is back at school but the cough is still bad- we neb and he is on antibiotics for a possible secondary infection. I have heard that you need to be careful for the reoccurrence with this flu. Now that you all have a version of it again I'll be watching son #4. He is at a soccer game now sitting on the bench or coughing and coughing on the field in the cold- 42 degrees. Hubby is watching him, girls and I are huddled in the house! The girls did not get it and hubby and I just have a cold and a little achy feeling- I'm hoping we got off easy! Time will tell!

What do you think about the sw*ne flu shot? Sorry so long!

Super Mommy said...

Absolutely love it!!

Jboo said...

So sweet! It's so nice when they love their teachers!

Now, get well and I mean soon!


Heather of the EO said...

The swooping ruled line is the best.

I'm sorry you're still sick. Again.


Colleen said...

I hope you are feeling better??? What a wonderful masterpiece...I love it!!!! : )

happygeek said...

The rainbow hearts are certainly better than making rainbows with her eyes.
LOVE the lined paper.

Sharie said...

I wonder if Ms. Confetti truly knows how much she is loved:)
That is the stinkn' CUTEST note EVER!

Justin Narin said...

Now that is something everyone will love to get :) She is really sweet.

Priceless! What a neat work of ART!
Love it and I too thank you for posting on my blog, but I still feel that I do not have it right!
I thought I had gotten a pic up to go with the verse, apparrently not.

Well let's get ready for 2nd grade!
Maybe they can teach me today! (LOL)
Really not a certified teacher with a five year degree but certified enough to work when another teacher is out!

Again thank you for visting my post.
I do hope that you are feeling better too!

Also I would love to get a not like that from my little darlings!
Just maybe I will one day!
Onward to the second grade!

Blessing to you and your family!

Lisa said...

Ack...missed the grumpy post, but I hear ya sista! Yesterday's headache, rain and the fact that DH hasn't been home before 9 p.m. ALL week gave me the blues too! :)

So sorry to hear you have all been sick again......hope this is it for you guys for the season....more than your share indeed!

I can add that L was sick a lot last year in K; I was about ready to tear my own hair out...I even sent her with those individual packets of hand wipes tucked into her pockets....it was that bad!

BUT so far this year? Okay...not gonna jinx myself, but maybe those K germies gave way to stronger immunity?? That's the silver lining I'm reaching for for anyhoo...LOL Course I'm sure something will bite us eventually....I only hope I can blog with such grace when it does!

Get better.....LOVE the artwork too! Soooo sweet

QingLu Mama said...

Oh my! This is incredible, a tru work of art. The amount of time and concentration that must have gone into this!
And I bet her teacher was thrilled to have her back in class to deliver this little treasure!

Hope you feel better soon...
