I have found that my children need advance warning if we are going to have a crazy day or week. So, I was prepared in advance this week and gave them notice. Thursday was going to be a fun, yet long day, without school in the mix. We worked around that day and they got all their schoolwork done before fencing on Friday. (That's our new rule--all the week's work has to be done before they leave.)
Peanuts movie, dentist consult for one and dentist appointments for all, a library chess tournament....
- Michael actually chose to play in the chess tournament and had a great time!
- No one died from biology.
- Milkshakes all around after great reports from the dentist.
- Last week of summer Bible study--it was such a blast!
Joshua and the Battle of Jericho
Saturday, I was up and out of the house before 6 AM for the CCI yard sale with my trusty sidekick, Tera. We are in a transition year with an upheaval in our location. We are trying to function like they have in the past years, but it has been very difficult. Tera and I have been trying to come up with some new ideas that are less strenuous on the CCI volunteers--mainly a group of older ladies. Here is one of the ideas I came up with to present for our booth at the town's fall festival:
Today, we took a day of rest and hung around the house. The last couple of days I have not felt well, but today I felt like my body is starting to chill out a bit. After resting and unplugging for the most part this weekend, I feel so much better! Tera fell asleep on the couch; Daniel laid down in bed to read for a long time; Michael and I snuggled on the couch to read The Green Ember.
