Homeschool week in Review

In my life this week…


On Wednesday, Bubba had another episode of Reactive Airway Disease. I thought we were headed to the hospital but he made a sudden and miraculous turn around on Thursday, I believe due to the power of prayer! Then on Friday on our way to the doctor's office for another child he threw up (Yes, the dreaded car throw up) and I noted that morning his diaper was completely dry. He did not potty until about 3 pm. Which was just two hours shy of the 5pm deadline our doctor had given us before we were to head off to the ER for IV fluids. By the way when he did potty he peed out of his diaper and all over my leg! NICE...

In our homeschool this week…


We had school and softball game on Monday.

Mama & Shoo
Sit down before you read Tuesday...are you sitting? (do not do this at your home even though I did this on purpose it was a bad idea!)....We went on a field trip at 9am to the Fire Department which the kids really enjoyed. At 11am we had a doctors appointment for Sugar & Bullet. Then lunch with Daddy at his work. Then off to the park to let the kids run out some energy for an half an hour. Then to speech therapy at 2pm and off to the theory test at 3:50 pm.  Finally we had Sugar Pie's last softball game at 6 pm and we went out to dinner. I am amazed I made it through all that mess.

We had art class on Wednesday and I'd love to display the absolutely beautiful renditions of Van Gogh's Sunflowers however we cannot find the cord that connects the camera to the laptop. (arghhh!!!)

Thursday we had school in the morning and we had both babies therapies in the afternoon. Pearson's Softball End of Season party was rescheduled to next week.

Friday we woke up and ran back to the doctors office for Sweetie, Me and Bubba (see in my life this week for details on Bubba).

My favorite thing this week was…



Sugar Pie
My favorite thing this week is not a thing but two people...Bethany who has been such an indescribable blessing. She babysit the kiddos while I ran to the store to buy Bubba Juice and enough food for us to eat for a couple of days. Jen B. who texted me consistently to check on Bubba's condition. She's a Mama whose been there and knows how worrisome his condition can be.

Homeschool Questions/thoughts I have…

I am really considering year around school mostly because of the frequent interruptions due to illness, life and having a passel of kids. I kind of feel like it would free me up to be Mama without so much worry about our schedule and getting stuff done by .....
Bullet & Sugar Pie

I’m cooking…

If you read "In our Homeschool this week" then you probably suspect there hasn't been much cooking around here! On Tuesday we ate at a local Mexican food restaurant. Praise God on Wednesday Jeremy (a young man from our church group) feed us or we would of had a very-very late dinner. Thursday we at Left-over beans & rice. Friday we ate chili after I got back from the store.

A photo, video, link, or quote to share…

I hope you had a truly blessed week of homeschooling!

Wow! What a Tuesday you had! I think I would've had to take WEDNESDAY off to recover! LOL

I hope Bubba is doing better!

We do a version of year-round schooling, and it really does help; I highly recommend giving it a try. :^)

Goodness- what a week! I hope your little one is feeling better now:) Love the photos- you have such a beautiful family!

Hoping you have a slower paced week this week.

Oh, and...we do not take a summer break, so I'm never worried about getting behind.
