Yesterday, Margaret was home sick.*
She was a little listless, but not prostrate.
And so she and Ellie played together quite nicely.
They built towers together, and then -- though you can't, perhaps, exactly see it, they knocked them over by kicking soccer balls into them.
It was sort of nice.
*Today she's home sick as well, because she seems to have caught some not very virulent but long-lasting stomach bug.
