There really isn’t much to say about this week…it could really do with a “do-over”. The hardest news was learning that our daughter would have to undergo a scope for a diagnosis. Unless her tests threw off some false positives she has some sort of inflammatory bowel disorder/disease.
We did get an offer on our house in western Kentucky. That is the good news. The crappy part is the relocation company doesn’t want to accept the offer. I thought the role of a relocation company was to be helpful during the
moving process. Sadly, this has not been our experience. I hope the offer goes through. As much as I love our former home, it would be nice to get it off our hands. We have a hard time taking care of it since it is so far away. We’ll feel like we have a bit of breathing room in our lives once it belongs to another family…one less thing to tie us down.
Our academic year ended on Thursday. No-one really noticed except for me. Usually we take pictures and go out for dinner or
something. This year the middle two spent the evening with friends at VBS. My husband and Oldest went to meet with the realtor and do some work at the old house. Littlest and I were left at home and feeling a bit abandoned by everyone.
Sunday was a good day. I spent the morning getting my hair done. The toner in my hair starts to fade after a few weeks and I just start to feel a bit drab. My hairdresser (magician!) gave me a bottle of special shampoo that is supposed to help with the fade out. Hopefully it works.
At home I baked a bunch of cookies for an Independence Day celebration at the home of one of my husband’s co-workers. They have some beautiful property and we enjoyed ourselves for the evening. Good food and good company. The kids roasted marshmallows and played with sparklers. We even watched a few fireworks before the rain set in.
The sky continues to rain…
My last review for the TOS Crew is this week. I’ve opted to drop off the team because of Sparkles illness. Having one less obligation to worry over is freeing…not to mention time-saving.
The whole week was not as depressing as I’ve described. Our morning routine ran fairly smoothly. We are all glad to get back to read aloud time, habit training and poetry memorization. Right
now we are just loving The Phantom Tollbooth…such a crazy wacky book and so fun to read. Oldest and I conquered a chunk of Les Miserables (I misspell it every single time!!!). Right now we are in a serious debate on which movie version to watch. I want to see the Hugh Jackman musical (Wolverine and he is singing!!!) and Oldest wants to see the Liam Neeson version. Since I do not want to buy the movie I guess we will end up watching whichever version the library owns.
We are going to learn how to knit for our handicraft this year. The kids and I went to the hobby shop to purchase needles and yarns for our various projects. Middle Boy also found a book of Minecraft projects that he really wanted. He had not discovered what he wanted to do for his project weeks during the school year and this book just hit his happy spot. It is full or art and STEM projects so we are both happy. I’ll have more about our upcoming school year soon, our curriculum choices and projects. I’ll also write-up my final thoughts (more like a memorial) on our past academic year.
