I know that it is a little early for a monthly review. Next week is Sawyer’s birthday and Thanksgiving, so I do not foresee much happening school-wise!
November began fairly uneventful. Classes continued. Co-op continued. Sawyer and Parks had a watercolor intensive class this month.
Since the first week of nonevents, the month has been crazy! Sims fell while climbing and messed up his shoulder which has resulted in many, many appointments. He dislocated his shoulder resulting in an impaction fracture to his humeral head and a torn lat muscle. We had cars in and out of the shop. Mobile phones died (this actually was not too bad until it was. It did make it tough for the kids to communicate with me while they were out and about, but that was about it.). Sawyer had to go in for an infusion. All kids had eye doctor appointments. At one point, I thought for sure were being videoed. If it could go awry, it had. We sat at our table laughing about all of the crazy when the dog and the cat came running through the kitty door chasing a squirrel!
Then the viruses starting hitting the house! First Sawyer went down. Then Parks and I were hit right after. Thus, we spent two weeks with high stress from illness. We have watched movies, read, and just chilled out because that is all we could do.
We did have a few fun times. We celebrated Parks’s 13th birthday! Sims hurt his arm but missed getting sick. He went on an adventure to move a 40-foot sailboat from Annapolis, MD to Charleston, SC. He is still gone today. They aren’t going to make it to Charleston due to the weather, so he will be out on the boat again at a later time.
So November was not our most productive month school-wise. Lots of life-learning happened!
