Still sick

Blech, I hate colds that linger forever. So, needless to say, we haven't done much lately. Yesterday the library and the grocery store totally wiped me out for the day. The only thing school-related that we did was for me to read the first third of the Time Warp Trio book, Tut Tut, for History. LOL, that counts as literature, right?? In other good library news, Cameron actually picked out a chapter book to check out!!! It was Star Wars: Boba Fett, The Fight to Survive. Quality literature, I'm sure. I'm not even sure if he was planning to read it or if he wanted me to read it to him because he hasn't mentioned it since... but it's a great start!!

Today we made it to ballet early for the first time in I can't remember how long, lol. Some sad news though. One of the moms there lost the baby that she was expecting. She must've been at least 10 or 12 weeks. I feel awful for her, but I really couldn't say anything but "I'm sorry." It all just hit too close to home. I really wanted to reach out to her and say something more profound, more personal but I barely know her and was pretty sure that I wouldn't have been able to open my mouth without crying. :( So sad.

Anyway, after a long afternoon of making Valentines, napping, and watching DOOL, we finally got settled into schoolwork at about 4:30 pm. Cameron did some excellent reading today. We worked on two syllable words ending in "er" for Phonics; practiced picking out nouns, pronouns, and action verbs from "The Three Little Kittens Who Lost Their Mittens" for Grammar; finally finished off that math workbook (I always write down the dates we begin and end and this one took 5 months and 1 week. A little slower than usual but not too bad considering how often we slack!); and finished off with reading about water and evaporation for Science. We were supposed to do an activity for Science too, but I was a bad girl and didn't read ahead so I didn't have the necessary supplies. So this weekend I need to go out and buy a couple of lab thermometers and some beakers. The funny thing is that I will have to go to the hobby store for those. The teacher supply store doesn't carry that type of thing, lol.

And that's our day. I'm ready for a nap now. ;)

Hi Jenny! Gosh, I've been away from your blog for far too long! (I got behind on everything computer related for a while there.) I'm glad to read that the new peanut is looking good -- sending you some good thoughts on that. I'm sorry to hear you are sick though. Hope it doesn't last long.

Time Warp Trio and Star Wars? Definentely counts. ;o)
