The children enjoyed coloring eggs yesterday, as they tend to enjoy anything messy. Next week should be even better -- they get to play egg relay and egg toss with raw eggs. I will try to keep the damage to a minimum, but I make no guarantees.

Even though Forrest is occasionally eating voluntarily, it is nowhere near enough, so I went ahead and opened the canned food. She wasn't interested, and I had to smear it into her mouth to get her to eat it. She will continue on fluids, and the others will start if they end up in the same condition, which from the sneezing going on in that corner is sounding very likely.
