On the Home Front
Well, not much. I was sick Sunday through Wednesday. Grace plugged along with her school work as much as she could without me and helped with the house and animals while I was laid up in bed. There was a lot of catching up on TV episodes and laying around recovering from a lingering stomach bug with many an animal in my lap as you can see in the picture above.
My tutoring students didn't get to come all week but I did send some work home with them. The pictures below depict some of the activities they worked on last week. I took them outside to work on a sketch derived from one of our review products. The next picture shows the girls working on their Orphs of the Woodlands story and activities which is another review product. Both products will have reviews coming up in the very near future.
On the Cooperative Front
This is where things get really tricky. I had to miss practice on Tuesday because of the above stated illness. Luckily my partner in crime (co-director) was able to handle all the details of the next scenes in blocking Peter Pan. The next 4-6 weeks will be insane trying to build a stage, handle sound, figure out new lighting equipment, finish all practices for Peter Pan, Recital Night, Variety Show, Spring Formal, Parent Packet to go out with new classes for the fall, and so much more. We had another practice on Thursday that I was able to attend. Then last night (Friday) all the teens of the Cooperative got together for an informal dance. Think some ballroom, some fast dance, some slow dance, the chicken dance, line dancing, and even the limbo. Kids had a great time.

Grace is plugging along with her academic load. Spanish and Literature classes will be finished on April 30th. Hoping History and Biology will be done by the end of May and Math in the beginning of August. Grace handed in her application for a work study program this week to an animal hospital for the summer. She is pretty excited about this one. Looking at maybe two full days a week and if they like her and she likes the work continuing on through the school year.
