Seventh Week of Easter: May 20 - 26, 2012

My premonition of the weekend was correct.  The bug that Jane picked up?  She passed it on to me and Oliver.  Our symptoms showed up about 15 minutes apart, in the wee hours of Sunday morning.  Mothers' Day was spent in a semi-comatose state, willing myself to keep water down and flinching when the fan moved the curtains and allowed light to enter the room.

Henry made me a lovely card, though.  At one point, he came in the room, cupped my cheek in his hand, shook his head, and solemnly said, "Poor mommy."  What a dear.  Poor Matt was left to keep us all alive.  This was probably the most non-restful leave he's ever taken, but thank goodness he took it.

We limped through the week, cramming most of our assignments into two days.  Henry wound up coming down with a much milder version of the bug on Thursday, but he was feeling fine by the end of the day.  Today is the first day that we've all felt pretty normal, so we're trying to get some things done in preparation for the baby.  Henry and I went through the bags of baby clothes from the shelves, pulling out the newborn and 0-3 month things to run through the wash.  I managed to run to the store yesterday afternoon to pick up a few random things like gas drops and bottle liners and so forth and also renewed our Amazon Subscribe and Save subscriptions for formula and diapers.

I'm getting there.

What we're working on this week:

  • Go For the Code - Finished!
  • Hooked on Phonics Learn to Read Kindergarten Level 2 - lessons 14-17 (-eg, -ell, -ck and compound words) - This completes the book!
  • Saxon Math K - lesson 105 (Acting out "some" and "some more" stories), lesson 106 (Dividing a shape by half, ordering shapes by size), and lesson 107 (Comparing objects by weight)
  • OT (We missed the appointments last week due to all the sickness.)
  • Colors, letters, shapes, and numbers on
Our diocese celebrates the feast of the Ascension this Sunday.  I've seen some really neat crafts on and, but I think we're going to skip it this year.  It's going to take everything we've got to just get all the kids to Mass.  We're still doing on our Garden of the Good Shepherd book, though.  I am so glad we got it; it's really helped to make the whole Easter season special.
