My Week in a Word: Busy!

We had a very busy week here. We had all the usual activities—therapy, dance, AWANA—along with a trip for Roo’s allergy testing and a visit on Thursday to PD’s dermatologist, where she had another encounter with the medication made from the chemical that blister beetles use to defend themselves. The good news is that it was quite effective on the warts and molloscum the first round, so we’re hoping it will knock out the ones that are left this time.

We also got to spend an hour and a half in the waiting room of the lab so I could have lab work done to check my potassium level. The new computer system at the clinic takes forever to process orders now, so the wait has become ridiculously long. Fortunately, I had packed lessons and books. The time was well spent working on school work. One man waiting near us finally asked, “Are you homeschooling?” When I told him yes, he said, “You’re a good teacher.” It made my day!

We spent time at Books-a-Million after being trapped in the clinic all morning and then had lunch with my grandmother at Cracker Barrel. We couldn’t leave without browsing in the store. There’s so much neat stuff to see there! The girls tried on some hats:

In other HUGE news, my brother married his high school sweetheart yesterday and is now on his honeymoon. I saw pictures on Facebook throughout the day and cried happy tears more than once. I’m so excited for both of them, for our whole family!

Last but not least, Faith Finders kicked off this week reading the introduction of The Ministry of Motherhood by Sally Clarkson. It’s not too late to join us if you’re interested. We’ll start discussing the introduction on our Facebook group on Monday and will begin reading the first section next week. We’ll also be sharing blog posts we write about what we’re learning as we read the book, and there’s a lot of sharing and praying going on already about different issues some of the members are facing. Join us!

What was your week like?

    This week has been FULL. I haven’t been extra busy but the week’s been filled with study, time with friends, and prayer. I’m so blessed, and I’m thankful for you, Jennifer as I continue to consider homeschooling next year. (K’s already got her home cooking school named, so am I still deciding?? :-) I’ve missed visiting here daily and look forward to catching up. Blessings!

    • Yes, we definitely need a catch-up phone call! You know the homeschooling is a done deal. I knew it as soon as you told me how you felt when you took that walk! :)

      Blessings to you and yours!
