I found him hiding in his bed. He didn't want us to know he was sick. He wanted to go to school that badly.
Needless to say, he had to stay home. But he cheered up when I pulled out the pyramid that he received from Santa Clause.
I read to him about Egyptian culture and archaeology while Pierce got set up. His first step was to crack the top and find the secret slide to remove it.
Once the top was off, he discovered the pyramid was full of sand. Luckily, he was armed with special tools to carefully remove the sand.
And, he found a sarcophagus! Pierce got very excited over this. He kept saying how cool it was.
Bit by bit, he removed a mummy, a death mask, the sarcophagus, and 4 animal urns (which were used to store the organs before mummification.
Readers, does it seem like sickness always comes at the most inconvenient times? Or is it just me?
