The Homeschool Mother's Journal Friday January 6th 2012

In my life this week…  Our house has been quarantined since last Thurs 12-29-11 because Mazlyn woke up in the morning with one of his eyes stuck shut with "gunk".  I knew that he most likely had pink eye so I made an appointment right away and sure enough conjunctivitis and double ear infections.  So.... nasty smelling (and tasting I'm assuming) antibiotics were started and he started looking and acting better by Sunday.  So naturally Sunday morning both Alyvia and Wyatt started having the "gunk" and coughing.  Wyatt slept most of the day away and when he was awake he had a fever of 102.  Monday morning I called and made an appointment for the other two to be seen by the doctor and they were diagnosed with bronchitis, ear infections and pink eye.  So more antibiotics and eye drops were added to the docket.  The kids have been doing well taking their medicine but school has not exactly been smooth sailing this week. 
In our homeschool this week…  Alyvia's homeschool program at the YMCA started back up on Thursday.  We had been on Winter break since early November so it was nice to see our friends and to have her excited about going.  Since the kids had all been on antibiotics for more than 48 hours I figured it was safe for us to venture out and participate this week.
I am inspired by…  All the amazing Homeschool Mom's that I meet either in person (like at the Y) or on the internet.  I have come to realize that we all have our own strengths and weaknesses but we can learn some very valuable things from each other.
Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…  The Y this week for Homeschool program, hopefully making a visit to see Grandparents this weekend and maybe a trip to the Museum of Play next week (before our membership runs out.)
My favorite thing this week was…  When Wyatt (3)  looked me in the eye after taking his medicine and said "Did I take it like your champ Mom??"  I melted into a puddle right there.  He's growing up soooo fast.  And they remember everything.
What’s working/not working for us…  School is very loose around here right now as we prepare to put our house on the market so we can move to a bigger/better house.  Lyvi is learning daily, it's just not always workbooks and readers.
Things I’m working on… Staging our house for sale and getting organized in my head.  Lol.  Funny right??
I’m reading… The Bible daily,  several womanish magazines on the Nook and of course tons of children's books for my three little book lovers.
I’m cooking…  Yeah about this, one of my New Years resolutions is to cook.  I always seem to plan the meals but Tom usually ends up making them.  I am going to try to curb that habit a little.  For his sake and my own.  Lol.
I’m grateful for… Life, love and family.  
I’m praying for… Peace.
