Even Barf Can Be a Blessing.......

This morning at 6:15 I heard Fia coughing, so I went to investigate.  I found Fia standing at the side of our bed, throwing up into a sheet Joe had cupped in his hands while lying in bed.  Poor man.  What a rude awakening.  It was day 2 of Fia having to be at home, no school for our girl yet again.  

But what a blessing it turned out to be!  We had such a fun morning building our town.  It was Nico's idea to begin with but then everyone offered up their opinions and ideas.  Fia was able to direct us from her position on the couch - Fia absolutely LOVES when she is sick to lay on the couch with a blanket and a tray table of goodies next to her.  She had a crate of crayons, construction paper, scissors and some glue.  She got right to work.  Nico helped to build and had many ideas of his own.  Francesca built her own house and set up people.  Welcome to Codispoti Town Village!  (Name courtesy of Nico)  

All of Francesca's people walking through the river.  They look like they are on a pilgrimage - some wise men, Mary, a zebra, a dog, the shepherd boy and, of course, a smurf.

Francesca's "house" - really she just wanted a bed.  She dragged out her bee pillow and Dora sheet and  constructed herself a fine little house.

Fia working on a building front with a pot in front of her.........just in case.

The entrance to the zoo

On overview of Codispoti Town Village

Nico playing at the "pier".  Oooh and note the raindrops and sun overhead - totally Fia's idea.  It add much to our town village.  There is snow on the other side of town.  Francesca chose the sunny side of town :) 

The bridge and river were Fia's ideas.  The ponds were Nico's ideas.

At one point Francesca just couldn't handle all the creativity and had to sequester herself in the booth area to work on her own things.

Fia feeling better :)  Couldn't stand to be left on the couch
