This week? Yeah. C-R-A-Z-Y! I have no pictures unless you’re interested in the massive hives Seth developed.
Monday: Normal morning, the last such of the week. While changing Seth’s diaper after lunch, I found hives the size of my hand on each thigh and a rash on his torso. I ran him around the neighborhood, gathering opinions, scheduled an appointment with the pediatrician, and had PJ come home to help with the other kids. By the time we headed out, the hives were gone, as is par for the course with Seth’s medical issues. He was diagnosed with a viral rash, unknown cause of hives, and a diaper rash infection. We ended the day with a Fall Festival party at the seminary. According to Emma: “I. LOVED. THAT.PARTY!” I was all about the free dinner that I didn’t cook.
Oh, I do have a picture. This is Seth on Benadryl, running around saying “quack quack”. The glasses are completely his doing.
Tuesday: a fairly normal school day. PJ left for Washington, D.C. to take a class at Capitol Hill Baptist Church. Overall, the day went well.
Wednesday: I woke up exhausted after less than two hours of sleep, though all the kids slept perfectly. I knew there was no way I could teach school, so I priced our yard sale items, made a grocery list, and got lesson plans ready for next week. We headed to church that evening for our first night of choir. I think it will be a great experience for the kids!
Thursday: School in the morning, grocery store in the afternoon. Crazy kids, so everyone went to their rooms with quiet activities pretty early. Sweet friends brought brownies and adult conversation.
Friday: We finished our school week with language arts in the morning. After an early lunch, we headed to a jump house in Raleigh. Best Groupon I’ve bought—three hours of all the kids being crazy active in a way that didn’t stress me out while hanging out with a friend. Not too bad! Multiple meltdowns when we got home, so it’s another early night while I regroup for tomorrow.
The weekend: yard sale, pool party, church, and small group. Here we go.
I’m at the end of the post and realized I said almost nothing about homeschool. We did it. The end.
