Today we will have school, how does a home-schooler have a snow day? 🙂 Dis-advantage, however the advantage is we can stay home or get out whatever we feel like doing when it’s cold and snowy out.  Monday was a shorts day with 78* then it dropped to 34*

Basketball Week, Really?


This week just became one of those really busy homeschool weeks where I feel like we are fighting to have school.We had an unexpected funeral of a dearly loved man from church on Monday. His daughter is a dear friend of mine and our family so we grieved deeply with them and it hurt soooo badly! 😥

I had a sewing day on Tuesday and we delivered at quilt to a special boy named L who suffered from shaken baby syndrome. His new mom says he only has quarter of a brain that also makes me cry. He is a cutie at 4 years old; he happens to be blind and deaf also. Yet we felt and did his mom and one sister,that he was hearing some of what we were saying since he was responding!   He is the youngest of 10 kids!!!

Oh yes, basketball, we had a basketball night on Tuesday, 3 of them. I have 2 players, but only one played this night, my senior son C.

Wednesday, Doctor R appointments for K and I our chiropractor! Then we tried to do some school work but didn’t get all subject done.

Thursday was a trip to a new dental office for 4 out of 5 of us. and K as a game tonight. Today a better day of school!!! And I will be sandwiching 2 quilts that are way way WAY overdue! I had to run out to JoAnn’s and buy more batting, I didn’t have as much as I thought! So while I was there, I purchased backing fabric for my jumping cats quilt. Son C will have to go help find fabric for his quilt back.

Friday, school, a full day, plus away basketball games, we leave a 4p and both kids will play, however, thee will be a game or two between my kids gaems so I will be sitting for a couple of hours in a tiny town in Kansas…probably sewing on the binding of a quilt.
