Second Week of Easter: April 15 - 21, 2012

We are back to work and in the final stretch of preschool for Henry!  I'm vacillating between hoping the new baby comes a little early and wanting it to stay put for an extra week or so, just to make sure we get everything finished up.  The latter desire is probably inversely proportional to my ability to walk up the stairs.

Henry's assignments for the week:

Language Arts
  • Go for the Code - letter v
  • Hooked on Phonics Learn to Read Kindergarten Level 2 - lessons 1-3 (-ot, -op, and -ox words)
Saxon Math K
  • Lesson 91 - Counting nickels
  • Lesson 92 - Assessment #10 - Acting out addition and subtraction stories
  • Lesson 93 - Identifying largest and smallest shapes, identifying and covering half of a shape
  • We're done with our Who Am I? Image of God preschool book!  Henry is still working on his Easter lapbook.  I decided to stretch it out more to emphasize the Easter season.  We're also doing our nightly ceremony using The Garden of the Good Shepherd.
In Oliver news, the trip to the developmental pediatrician did not go over very well.  Suffice to say, we will not be going back in six months for yet another followup.  We (and our insurance company) are in disagreement with her diagnostic process.  Instead, we're pursuing other resources here in town.  In that vein, Oliver has an occupational therapy evaluation scheduled for this week.  He's also got one last speech therapy session with his current therapist.  Next week, he'll go for a new speech evaluation with a therapist who specializes in children.

And, on the baby front, I failed my latest one-hour glucose tolerance test and I get to experience the ecstatic joy of the three-hour test on Monday.  At my 30-week ultrasound, "little" Peter/Violet weighed in at four pounds.  My hopes at passing this three-hour are not high, but I've never failed one before.  We'll see.  Either way, it looks like this is going to be another 8lb+ baby.  No newborn diapers for this household!
