The Homeschool Mother's Journal - Getting Sick!

1. The girls' at church on Pentecost Sunday. I found Delani's dress at a
local citywide consignment sale and though that was all I found I
felt it was worth going to. 2. Doing a lesson on the Lord's Prayer for
Sunday School 3. & 4. Yeah! Finished books. 5. Surviving my cold,
though I forgot to put the Kleenex in the picture.
In my life this week...
Tuesday evening I came home and started coughing which then continued into Wednesday. I also started to feel achy. I kept telling my husband I thought I was coming down with something, but since we were supposed to attend a conference on Friday, I think he was hoping I was imagining it.

Well, Thursday my nose started running and has been going non-stop ever since. Needless to say I didn't go to the conference. I'm sitting her trying to get my brain to work while I write this up. I'm sure I must have a fever, but every time I take my temp it is below the normal 98.6. Boy, I'll garner up a lot of sympathy with that!!!!

It was pretty much a week at home. Our beautiful weather decided to desert us and I had two different days that I had to turn on the heat since we couldn't get warm. Ahh, the joys of Oregon weather.
In our homeschool this week…
We are working hard at getting things finished up. With using Ambleside Online, slow reading are encouraged, but whenever we get within a few weeks of being finished for the year I will read more than one reading in a sitting or a week. This week we finished George Washington's World and our readings in This Country of Ours for this year. Chantry also finished John Adams by Janet & Geoff Benge.

Caleb is working hard at getting Geometry all finished up and his biography reading along with various other books.
Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…
My bed!
