Other Activities this Week:
Tuesday we had to take Christian to the dentist. He had started complaining on Sunday that he had a tooth that was bothering him. I looked in his mouth and could see the cavity. First thing Tuesday we drove down for him to get it fixed. I was going to take the children to the movies after but we had had a really bad storm Monday night and half the city of Texarkana was still without power. The movie theater was in the half with no power. I bough the children some ice cream and drove them home.
Wednesday our new baby chicks arrived! Aren't they cute??
Thursday I spent the day at Urgent Care. Long story short I had been having pain under my ribs and around my back since Monday and felt awful. When I didn't feel better by Wednesday I tried to schedule a doctor appointment but they had no openings til Monday so Thursday I ended up at Urgent Care. They ran some tests and told me to follow up with my regular doctor. So I got to spend Friday and Saturday on the couch and am still supposed to be taking it easy, no lifting, stretching, or straining and I may have to have more tests ( I hope not!) They also found another issue that I have to have monitored. It was not a fabulous day but I am thankful it wasn't anything terribly serious.
Sunday was our anniversary. After church we took the children to the movies. They had power this time!
|It was warm enough to swim this week but they said the water was freezing!|
I hope you had a great week in your homeschool!
