So I managed to get a load of washing in the dryer and another one in the machine with Bridget’s help
I made porridge for breakfast and we ate it by the fire that has been burning for 3 days now.
It’s cold and rainy. Perfect winter, recuperating weather
The children are watching ‘Little House on the Prairie’, and I thought I would just sit down for a bit!
I had laparoscopic tubal reversal surgery last Wednesday at the RPA in Sydney. They had to perform part of the surgery by laparotomy because one fallopian tube was shorter than expected…hence a longer recovery. But everyone has been very helpful, and I have been able to rest a lot
Why did we have this surgery? Because 4 years ago we decided we didn’t want anymore babies. Last year, Yahweh convicted us from His Word that we are really not at liberty to make those kind of decisions for ourselves We repented and He graciously allowed us to reverse the procedure. Isn’t He good? Children are a blessing, we know that now
With so much down time I have been planning the rest of the year in our homeschool. The ages of my kids are 11, 6 and 4. I plan for the 11 year old and adapt for the younger two, and I find it easier to do mostly everything together. I need to give credit to all the wonderful scope and sequence and scheduling info that is on the DownUnder Literature website. Thank you, Michelle! Your advice has helped me enormously!
CLICK HERE to see our weekly schedule. I am still to purchase the Apologia Science unit and the Lamb’s book of Art, but in the meantime we will do a unit study on William Tyndale, and perhaps that unit on the Baroque period. The Real Story of Mankind is free from HERE and we have only just started to use it, but it seems like a great world history overview. Oh, and I forgot to mention on the schedule that Bridget is learning about Klezmer music…how to play the style on violin, the history of it etc.
Sound like too much? Yes, it sounds like too much! Oh well, we’ll see how it all looks in reality next week when we start up again
