Monday

Kids sick!  We had things to do in town this morning so we did those, and then I dropped the kids off at the library and I joined a friend for a time of prayer.  This saved her driving out to me this afternoon.  Our afternoon consisted of lots of reading and relaxing and watching a movie.

Tuesday

Up and at’em today!  Or that was the theory!  Josh and Jess have worked on their independent studies well.  Nomi and Daniel have continued with their relaxed, lots of relationship time type of day!  I did have a session on Gratefulness with them – we discussed that Gratefulness affects our attitude (a merry heart doeth good like a medicine) and that our Gratefulness isn’t dependent upon our circumstances (in everything give thanks….)  Nomi worked on a notebook page depicting the children of Israel as “Moanheads” (thanks to Mr Henry!).  Daniel and I read The Cat in the Hat and discussed stranger danger, dialing for help in emergencies.  This was the first time I have ever looked at Dr.Seuss’ books with eyes for anything other than nonsense and rhyme.  I am going to reduce Daniel’s table time (keep expectations to Discipleship studies) and keep his response in general knowledge subjects to oral (rather than on paper).

This afternoon our friend A.BB, dropped in with a big bundle of stuff for the kids (she snuck in the back door so to speak so I didn’t see all this extra stuff coming into my house!!)  The kids loved it – some of it really is just clutter and knickknacks but there is a good bundle of creative projects and materials too.  On her way out to the car we were waylaid by the idea of a game of hopscotch.  She taught the kids the “proper” way to play and they were out there for about ¾ hour.  It was a great physical activity for Daniel – not only in the movement sense but also for his LD areas.

The kids are on the mend.
