Weekly Wrap Up - The One With Very Little School Work

This week found us doing very little school work. I had the best of intentions and wanted to play a lot of catch up with days we had missed dealing with the Cooperative and performances. Alas, that was not to be. We got a little bit of school work finished on Monday afternoon because Grace woke up with nausea and got sick a couple of times. This has become a routine as of late due to what we do not know. Surprisingly after a call last week to her doctor and this week they were not willing to work her in as they were over booked and too busy. So Tuesday came round and again she got sick 5 times that morning. I quite frankly had had enough and we headed to the hospital. Usually once these episodes are over she is fine and that is exactly how I presented her to the doctor at the hospital. He still ran blood work which all came back fine and sent her home on a few meds. Wednesday night she was sick and Thursday morning as well. At that point I was furious and called her doctor and in no uncertain terms made it clear that they would need to fit her in and they did. As of right now we still have no solid answers but they did schedule us for an ultrasound on Monday morning. Yesterday and so far today we haven't had any episodes.

Yesterday I hosted a Teacher's Appreciation Lunch for the Cooperative and Grace went over to hang out with some friends. After lunch we headed to Wally World to pick up groceries and a few Christmas presents.

Today me, hubby, and our two kids went and had lunch at Longhorns. Hubby's mother sent us a gift card for everyone to use for Christmas. The meal was good but of course the whole time I am wondering if Grace is going to keep it down. So far she has. After lunch we purchased the remaining Christmas presents and then I went on my own to purchase stocking stuffers. Hopefully Christmas is done.

So very little school was done this week. One lesson of Algebra, Grace started a story for Creative Writing, Henry the Fowler in history, geography, CNN Student News, and a few little things. We are only taking next week off and hope to be up and running right after Christmas.

We are learning a lot from the grammar book and did a couple of lessons this week. Wishing everyone a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

I admire you for even trying to fit schoolwork in this week. I find the crazyness and busyness makes it impossible for me to even think about it.

I hope that Grace is feeling better! Have a Merry Christmas!

Not much work getting done over here either! I hope Grace feels better and you get to the bottom of what is going on quickly. The uncertainty is emotionally exhausting. I hope your next few days heading into the holiday are peaceful and restful.
