Charlotte: Evie, there is something I have to talk to you about. I know you really wanted the children to come with you. But they cannot come along this time.
Oliver: Yes, yes dear girl, The children have all come down with the measles! They will have to stay in our care until they are better.
Evie: Oh my gosh! They all have spots!
Hammie: I fell sick.
Evie: You sure do look sick too!
Evie: Does it hurt?
Charlotte: It doesn’t hurt. But they do have fevers and chills and cannot go anywhere for many weeks.
Evie: Well this is just so sad! I hope they all feel better.
Oliver: They will, Evie. We have plenty of Sugar pills! (winking)
Evie: (sniffling) Now I have no one to play with!
