Weekly Wrap Up- And Then There Was Me

This week has gone by in a bit of a blur.  The cold that was passed on to me by my dear children and that I thought was gone chose to come back in full force as a sinus infection.  I spent most of the week in a fog before finally heading to the doctor for an antibiotic today.  I think we really did get some school work done.  I think we even got quite a bit done - except for today of course.

Monday- normal school work; science time where we talked about comets, made a comet nucleus using dry ice, and ate comets (milkshakes); gymnastics for Ashlyne
Tuesday - normal school work and absolutely nowhere to go Woohoo!
Wednesday- normal school; church activities
Thursday - normal school; gymnastics for Ashlyne
Friday- doctor for me and absolutely nothing productive in the way of school

We finished up Module 8 in our Apologia General Science book.  I've loved learning the differences between the uniformitarian and catastrophist view of geology and looking at how the data stacks up for each.

The little girls and I are almost finished with Little House on the Prairie.  We've enjoyed it, but I think we'll take a break after this one and pick up The Prairie Primer again next school year.  I'm ready for a Little House break and have some other literature units we could use next.

Charles and I had a little show down about math this week.  I had to spell out exactly what a careless mistake is and how he cannot keep making them so profusely in his math lessons.  Amazingly, the child didn't think he should be penalized "just because I multiplied wrong!".  Um, yes, that would be a wrong answer, Son, and a careless mistake.

And, that, my friends, is our week, such as it was.  I think I will now go to bed and hope for wellness next week.

  1. I have had the same kind of conversation with my kids (about math) at least 100 times over the years.

  2. I think you got a whole lot done despite not feeling well! That's pretty impressive. :-) My kids are enjoying the Little House books, too. We are book #8.

    Saying a prayer that you are feeling 100% soon!
    Many blessings,
    P.S. visiting from WUH. :-)

  3. I've had that same math conversation with my son. When I point out a careless mistake in a calculation, he will say, "But I did everything else right!" as if that makes an incorrect answer suddenly correct. :)

    Sorry to hear you had a sinus infection. I am slowly recovering from a bad head cold myself...not fun.


Thanks for stopping by. I love comments or questions, so be sure to tell me what you think.
