The Week That Went Off Track – Homeschool and Life Happenings

You’d think by now I wouldn’t get as frustrated with myself when things go off-track during the week. One day it will really get through my head. 

Part of it this week is we just have a LOT going on. Rick has been busy (and stressed) about work. With Easter coming, he has also been at church every night for a drama that is happening, and we have some other stuff we are volunteering for this weekend as well. 

It’s just been overflowing full. (And sometimes that is really hard for me.)

Anyway, here’s a quick video look at our week. 

But the nutshell version: 

  • Monday the kids slept in late. Our kids NEVER used to sleep in late, so this is new territory for us. On the other hand, it’s hard because the time adjustment has kids moving s.l.o.w. and there is one kiddo in our family who is under the impression that regardless of how much school is done, if the hands on the clock say _______, school is done! 

  • Tuesday – thought we’d be back on track, but then I got a call that my grandmother had fallen and was at the ER. After many hours, a whole lot of swelling, and a few x-rays later, she was sent home with a fractured ankle and a walking boot. To put it mildly, my grandmother is a very stubborn woman, and her boot stayed on for less than 12 hours. Somehow she feels that’s all well and good. So….I’ll be with her at the orthopedist on Friday to keep her in line with the doctor. There are SO many stories I could tell. You all – these are the moments you just have to smile and nod. Smile and nod. And bite your tongue….

  • Wednesday – fairly normal. But games. Games are good. Very good. There was so much laughing around the Headbanz game. Laughter is even better. 

  • Thursday – another normal day, but co-op in the afternoon where we had some dissection fun with a clam. Quite honestly, the clam was disappointing. And we had THREE to work on. 
  • Friday – we are volunteering at church and making/bagging cotton candy. This is the day that I am literally covered from head to toe with spun sugar. It’s a sweet sticky mess to say the least. 

Next week is going to involve some traveling as McKenna and I head to Atlanta (with Carisa and her oldest) to speak at Teach Them Diligently. This is the only chance I had to speak this year – and I am so excited to meet some of you all and to spend some time with the various friends I’ve made over the years. :) If you’re going, I’d love to see you, so please say hi!!

That’s it for our week – HOW WAS YOURS??
