Tales of a Homeschool Nothing ~ Blue, Grey, & BLACK

It feels like a black cloud has been hanging around this week. I didn't realize it to begin with, but by the middle of the week, it had reared its ugly head.

School has been nothing extraordinary this week. We added, subtracted, multiplied, divided, & counted. We have wrote, read, poked, prodded, & played. We drifted past World War I, swung into the roaring 20's, discovered the Harlem Renaissance & jazz. We fed the animals while it was 70 degrees & we fed the animals when it felt like 15 degrees.

We did make it to see a play about the Civil War. Reliving the Emancipation Proclamation & Johnny Marching Home along with finishing Ruthie's Gift were the highlights of the week.

Like I said, nothing extraordinary. Just another day in another week in this crazy thing I call life. I was counting down the days & looking forward to the weekend.

THEN.....that cloud broke loose.

Logan got sick & I mean S I C K. We still don't know what is wrong, but for 3 days now he has had a fever, a snotty, stuffy nose, & he has refused to get out of my lap. Its a little hard to get much done with a toddler in your lap.

So there went my plans for the weekend.

Just what does the weekend have to do with a homeschool post you might ask?

Well, I was planning on attending a Homeschool Mom's Retreat with many Christian ladies & friends. I have been anxiously awaiting this weekend ever since it was mentioned a few months ago. Not only did I need the extra encouragement, the reassurance, & the knowledge that I am not alone, but I could really use some plain old silly girly fun.

So, unfortunately, I missed out on the retreat and I still have a sick baby on my hands but such is life. This is the life I have been granted & I wouldn't change it if I could.
