Receiving this in the mail today was one of the high points. Love sitting and reading this magazine cover to cover. Couldn't have come at a better time. The other high point of the day is Grace finally did a math paper of subtracting and multiplying fractions with no errors. Yeah, we can move on to dividing fractions tomorrow. Once we finish that we can move on to decimals. Before the end of the year we need to understand order of operations, distributive property, basic geometry and decimals for the standardized test. Getting there. Here is where the painful comes in. Went to the doctor today- raging ear infection. Very painful. Also had to get a few items at the grocery store. Spent $23.41 on apples, lettuce, spinach, cantaloupe, bananas, milk, soda and juice. Bringing the grand total so far this month to - 217.41. Which leaves us with - 182.59 for the next 3 weeks. I think I am going to make it work. Looking to make some bread loaves in the next couple of days and the chickens have started laying eggs. So next week may see some more produce to be purchased as well as milk.
