This week has been a ton better than the past several.
My leg infection is much better. It is still painful when the dressing has to be changed every night. I go back to the Dr Tuesday and I am praying that everything looks good and normal and I can stop having to pack my leg with gauze. My husband is amazing and has changed my packing every day, without him I don't know what I would have done.
This week we will actually be doing a small amount of school tomorrow! Yes, on Saturday! We are trying very hard to get Mystery of History Volume 1 complete with only 6 more lessons. I can't begin to tell you how much I have loved using this program. I already have Volume 2 for September.
Zachary is also on his last lesson in Math U See Gamma. He has really loved mileage and tons. We started plowing through All About Spelling with force! We started last week mid week and we are today on lesson 12. It was a great review and although some lessons still give him a little trouble he did wonderful. Some days his dyslexia just can't let his brain, mouth and eyes work together. He gets so frustrated. The last 2 weeks I have prayed a lot about his therapy being denied for the second go round and after talking to the therapist she recommended that we start completely over and review everything with some of the techniques that she taught us.
Kyle is trying very hard to finish up Biology 101. He also finishes Drivers Ed next week! He has done so great on his tests ( I have to brag - 85, 90, 92, 96, 97) and Tuesday is his final test. I am proud of the way he has conducted himself. I am also very proud that he comes home talking about the things he sees what short time he is there that isn't appropriate! That means everything we have taught has actually sunk in.
Alexis has 4 more lessons in Grammar. She has had some issues this week with getting along with certain people.
This week I have struggled with some emotions related to our foster son. News of situations and changes that affect him weight on my mind for the well being of him. I am proud of my family for treating him so kindly.
I have made lunch and cleaned for Kevin's parents some this week. I hate to see his mom in such poor health and even though our relationship through the years has been some what horrible I would hope that if the situation was reversed she would do the same for my family.
We have been swimming a few more times this week. I am sad that I can't get in because of my leg.
My favorite meal this week has been Hamburger Steak and a baked potato. I know it seems silly but oh man was I craving it and it was delicious.
Sunday was Father's Day and of all days for our water pump to act up it did. My daddy and Grandpaw came down to help Kevin see what was wrong and after a few hours they figured it out. I am thankful for family that can help when needed. That was true selflessness and that exactly what Father's are.
Next week will be so odd. I am so nervous about sending Kyle and Lexi to Church Camp, they have never went anywhere for a week without me. I couldn't think of a more wonderful place to send them though. I know they will have a blast. I have something planned for Zachary and I that I hope he enjoys.
