Today I had to take the younger two for their annual check-ups, so I picked them up from school early. I decided to let Tobin stay at school and ride the bus home. He played at our neighbors' until I got home. At the doctor, Ev and Lala were charming with the doctor and brave getting their flu shots. I'm grateful for many things: health insurance, kind nurses and doctors, vaccines, public school transportation, awesome neighbors, and healthy children.
