Maddy is not a well child today. I kept him home yesterday after a long weekend of non stop coughing and fever. It got worse last night and he even vomited a couple of times. I took him to the doctors this morning (only available day and time) and it turns out that he has a slight case of bronchitis. He has been given chewable antibiotic tablets that he has to take every 12 hours for the next week or so.
He is not happy that he has to stay home as he would rather be at school with his friends. They are preparing for the Halloween Whacky Festival at the end of the month and also practicing new songs for the Heritage Festival early next month. All the kids are performing and singing songs and everyone can dress up in their national or native colors or traditional wear. We haven't decided how we should dress him up - they say you can have them wear the flag of their country or nationality or dress them up in their national clothing. What do you think we should do? Any suggestions family? maybe dress him up in an i'e faitaga and shirt, or screen print a shirt with the samoan, japanese and cook island flags or go all KIWI or ?!?
If you take a look at the school link here under Heritage Festival, you can see the different outfits the students wore - they looked awesome! http://www.fcps.edu/StenwoodES/scrapbook.htm
