Twenty days since my last post, and a lot of things have been happening. The littlest, Bug Hunter, tripped on a step up when going out on the upstairs porch. Banged her head right into the wood and ended up with a goose egg. I’ve never seen one like this, it’s always been AFTER the fact and hours later the Mr. would have a small knot on his head or something. No, this was a hard boiled egg cut in half mere minutes after she fell. I was scared at first, honestly, but with no blood, no pupil issues, her balance was fine I checked online while Spider Monkey went and grabbed the ice pack. It seems this is not at all uncommon and to just keep an eye on her for any sign of troubles that would require scans.
By the following morning the lump was almost entirely gone with just a faint blue/brown bruise.
I tried to alter my lesson logs by writing ‘Documentary’ in the day/subject blocks rather than the title OF the video. While I keep a separate sheet listing the documentary and it’s information it just looked incomplete on my lesson logs so it was back to a bit more detail.
I am still very much enjoying the folder system over the book planner that I was never able to maintain. I have a clear folder in my daily planner that I can keep just 3 pieces of paper in and a sheet of stickers on the other pocket. It’s working wonderfully.
Let me see…I made an agreement with the girls that for each workbook they complete they get 1 hour of video games. We have accumulated a lot of workbooks, most are 3/4 of the way finished but having so many is getting to be a mess. Another video game reward will be an ENTIRE day of free game play when they finish their Time4Learning lessons entirely.
I’ve also been considering changing the name of my blog/page name. I’m not sure yet, it’s just an idea I’ve been tossing around the last couple of days. The only thing holding me back is that I don’t focus ONLY on homeschooling so changing it to the name we adopted for our little free range school just doesn’t seem *quite* right.
