Vail 2011 - Day 8 Heading Home

We took a picture of Olivia in her Rockbrook Camp t-shirt to send to them.  They're having a contest to see how far their campers travel.  Anyone who sends in a picture will be entered to win some sort of Rockbrook item.  Olivia has her fingers crossed that she'll win!

The snow did not bode well for our flight out of Eagle.  But, they de-iced the plane and we were on our way.  (I was actually glad because it gave me extra time to finish Slumdog Millionaire which I had begun to watch on our flight to Vail.)

Olivia insisted on a close-up of the snow outside her window.

We made it to Houston on time and had plenty of time to get a bite to eat before our flight to Greenville.  It was a long day of travel and McIver seemed a bit puny.  I blamed it on the exhaustion from all of the skiing, but when I woke him up at 10:45 on Sunday morning, he had a fever of 101.5 and a sore throat.  Dawn and I Facebooked and texted back and forth all day with her reporting to me that Andrew also had a fever and eventually tested positive for the flu.

So, McIver had just two days of school the week before our trip, then missed four more days while we were in Vail and is home sick again.  We're going to the doctor in about an hour to see what we're dealing with.  Poor guy - he grabs his chest every time he coughs because it hurts so badly.
