...Jack's school has an outbreak of lice.
shaved it off. Easier than trying to keep them at bay when you can't see them.
We did Sam for good measure...he used the haircut to blend more into our surroundings while stalking game on our porch in the Kafue National Park over the weekend.
We were at Hippo Lodge in a lovely little cottage. Unfortunately, Jack arrived with a raging fever. How raging? We don't know as we had no thermometer. Better probably -- we just got him all hopped up on motrin and he was all the better for it.
But while waiting for the motrin to kick in he wanted to do little more than lay in bed, maybe watch some TV. Sam was happy to provide moral support.
