Boy I feel like I have been “away” for a while now! Having my hubby home was so amazingly wonderful and I have to be honest and say I did not miss the computer at all hehehe.
This week has been a good bit of up and down. My hubby had to head back to Iraq this week.That was rough.When we are apart it feels like nothing is right..everything just feels off.If that makes any sense! I am glad that all the kids are handling it well. Isaiah(8) is old enough to understand what's going on and to understand that we just got thru eight months apart and only have four left. That helps him deal with it.Justin(5) is a lot like his dad and doesn't do the emotional thing really. He is pretty quiet about the whole thing. The only thing he has done really is ask when Dad will be back. Hannah(2) has not thrown any huge fits or had any emotional meltdowns which I am thankful for! The other night when we were saying our prayers she said “Father,Daddy home peese Amen.” Breaks my mommy heart for them.But God is good and this is the life He has given us and I KNOW He will get us through.
On the school front we are feeling so “into” school right now! LoL Spring break was much needed!!I think its also nice to know that we are winding down for the year =0) We participate in a book club and are working our way through “The Trumpet of the Swan” and we all drew swans this week after reading a particularly good chapter. For our human body study we talked about the brain and all it does.Learned some neat brain facts.Did you know the average adult brain weighs three pounds, and that Albert Einstein had a SMALLER than average brain weighing somewhere closer to two and a half pounds =0)We also made Brain Hats!
We are trying out a new math curriculum right now since we are considering a switch from Saxon math to Math U See. So far the jury is still out! I like the shorter lessons and slower pace of Math U See but I think the manipulatives may not be the best for Isaiah.He honestly just doesn't like them much! So we are going to try it out for a bit longer!
That's about it for our week here! Slow and steady finishin’ up this years race =0)
