Tomorrow David and I are taking the children on a "field trip" to a local planetarium. This will be so fun to do a field trip together as a family, and the children will get a science lesson too!
It will be a nice, short road trip for J. We will be able to see how well she travels for future "longer" road trips to visit family and friends. :)
I wanted to say concerning home-school. We gave the online "Time4learning" a try during J's surgery recovery. While I do love the idea of online schooling, for a full curriculum it just did not work for us. So, I was glad when our Singapore Math, and Vocabulary Workshop books I had ordered came in. IMO the online did not teach as in depth or explain as thoroughly as I had hoped.
However, when J and J get into the upper grade levels of Jr High math, I'll probably switch them to Teaching Textbooks Math. It is a CD rom that runs off of the computer, but I really like that they work out every problem for you. There are also corresponding workbooks and textbooks that they will use with the CD rom.
What else...well, not much else I suppose. My nocturnal tendencies are about to get the best of me...been very tired lately, and fighting a sinus/sore throat thing. I've been drinking lots of green tea with honey, and it seems to be helping some. :) Lots of friends have been praying too! (Thank you) I do need better rest at night, but having a hard time sleeping at night...then I'm so tired during the day...
This too shall pass!
