weekly wrap up the Vicodin edition!

This week has gone in a completely different direction than I expected it too! Monday what was supposed to be a simple wisdom tooth extraction turned into oral surgery. Since then I have been on pills for this,that and the other! I am happy that on some of my feeling better moments we did get some health, math and reading done =0)We learned about our nervous system this week and talked about what it would be like if we couldn't feel things.I was tempted to wish for no feeling!Just in my mouth though! Math was all review worksheets. Simple to do and independent, which is exactly what we needed this week!  I did have a silly mom moment this week. On a day when my mouth was feeling better rather than worse I decided a good long read aloud was in order… I definitely regretted that one after the fact!!

Even though our week was not heavy on the traditional academics my kids have learned a lot about being a family, taking care of each other, being humble and saying we are sorry and lots of other really good things.

I hope everyone's had a wonderful week this week!

Those things are a lot more important than academics in the long run! Hope you are feeling much better now!

I love the way you learned about the nervous system while you had dental work!
