Busy week! No school!

My sweet little boy had surgery on Tuesday to have tubes put in his ears and today he had to go to the orthodontist and he's only 4yrs. old!! My emotions have been like a roller coaster to say the least!!

They decided to put tubes in because he has hearing loss and are hoping this will help. He does NOT like the drops we have to put n his ears twice a day for five days, but he is getting better at it. He's at least laying down and doing it now. :)

He has hemifacial microsomia, so we went to the orthodontist to see if there is anything we should be doing for him at this time. The orthodontist said that we don't need to do anything yet, but I'm not sure how familiar he is with hemifacial microsomia. So there may be a second opinion happening in our future, but not for a while, because my little boy need a break from doctors for a couple of weeks. Plus, I'll wait for the geneticist to tell us if she'd like us to get another opinion.

On top of his appointments, I had to go to the eye doctor and found out I have an inflamed eye and some type of bacteria in it, so now I have drops for my eye. I'm also working at a seasonal consignment store. So, we've had a busy week around here!

Hoping to get back on schedule next week with school!!! I'm missing it, because we've been having such a good time this year!!

Sorry I didn't post about my son's surgery and orthodontist appointment before it happened! I wasn't thinking straight!

So glad we started early!

The school year started earlier than normal this year. We started Math and LA at the beginning of July. It sounds crazy, but it has been a blessing already. I have been blessed to work a few weeks at a children's consignment store and having all of those days already on my calendar has freed me up to enjoy school more. I would normally stress about missing school, but now it has allowed me the freedom to enjoy doing school with my children and relaxing and enjoying them. Thank you God for giving me the crazy idea to start school in the middle of the summer so that I can enjoy my sweet children while they are here in my care. Anyone else start early this year, and how do you feel about it? I know it's not for everyone..hey,it might not even be for me every year!

Getting ready to put it all together!!

Today was a great day! My dd did her school in a very timely manner (probably because we have company)! Anyway, dd8 did Math U See Gamma 8b, LA 301 Lesson 13, Cheerful cursive Lesson 3, listened to skip counting CD, and practiced piano!!! She and I are both ready to get started with studying Children Around the World without the plight of the children. We will be adding in more about animals and the ecosystem. I need to work on that this weekend, so we can start on Monday.

Also, not school related, but God related, I had a great God sighting today! (That came from VBS, love a good VBS gimmick that sticks with you long after VBS is over.) We have been taking walks at night with our 80yr old neighbor. We live on a very steep road, and our neighbor and I set a goal to gradually work our way to the top by the end of the second week in August. ...................................(insert drumroll here)............................... We made it to the top today, a week ahead of our goal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Very exciting!! God has truly blessed us with this sweet neighbor, and I pray that we'll all be able to get out of the bed tomorrow!! :) Hope everyone has a great night and that God would allow you to have some wonderful God sightings tomorrow!!!
