Daddy is coughing a bit now, but he said he doesn’t have the fever. Wednesday night Claire’s fever came back up, and now she has some sort of stomach thing.

Yesterday we watched “Lord of the Rings”, but (I’m rather afraid of the comments this will bring) we skipped through most of the scenes with Frodo and Sam after they left the Fellowship. After viewing it again, I hold to my original favorite part: The Battle of Pelennor Fields after Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli arrive with the Dwimorberg-ians (I am not a LOTR “scholar”, and I only know all this because the little booklet is in front of me. I usually just call it the battle of the dead).
