The Week That Wasn't

This week started off quite well. We did school Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday. Tristin counted by 10's on Wednesday and got to count the play money he got for Christmas to do his workbook problems. He really liked that and math seems to come very naturally to him. Chad got to see his skills firsthand as we were at the dining table instead of kitchen table. I thought it was just me who noticed his inclination!!! The kids are enjoying The Family Under the Bridge, they like when the hobo says oh, la la! That was the beginning of our week. Then Wednesday I came home from picking up pizza, began dishing it out and Bell threw up all over the kitchen. Chad and I drug our mattress out to the living room floor and slept by Bell's room. Thursday everyone else seemed okay. We layed on our mattress and watched movies the kids. Thursday night Tristin got sick, then Hudsyn, then Chad, then me and then Kaitlynne. Sweet baby Grey was the only one spared. We all survived and I finally got everything cleaned and sanitized and toady. Tomorrow we will not be doing school because Chad and I have doctors appointments so Tuesday it will be. The kids were asking to do school today so by Tuesday they should be begging for it, or not, we'll see!

School Days!

Clearly I haven't posted weekly or beyond the first post, ever. There were a lot of things going on that took precedence over blogging. Since we have moved and are a more settled I would like to attempt that weekly post. Right now we are completing a little over 1 weeks worth of school in 2 weeks. We are going to do year round school so we have slowed our pace down a little bit. Not sure what school will look like after the next few weeks when Azalea Mae arrives. I don't see it being much more difficult. My lack of sleep will take time to adjust to but that should be it. We are enjoying Sonlight, the stories are great and the layout is so easy. I am thinking about looking into using a unit study curriculum next year. I think that in a few years all the reading with Sonlight may be a bit much. Also Tristin is an active move around type learner and I think that might suit him better. We'll see. That is all that is bouncing around in my head right now. Will (try) to post next week a little more in homeschool detail.
