Happy Friday peeps !!! Well, it could actually be a tad better, but hey, we’ll roll with the punches.
DH is, of course, still in Perth.. I miss him so much and although saying “I’ll see you next Friday” sounds soon, in reality, the days go by slowly.. Of course next Friday though will seem like it came around extremely quickly when looking back.
Master 12 (13 in 2wks) had an injury at Soccer training yesturday, so now has his leg up on a chair while doing his schoolwork, Ibuprofen onboard, as well as an icepack and crutches to keep him off the rather swollen knee. No soccer game for him t’row. :0( After getting some advice from my super resourceful Nephew-in-law (who happens to have had a few kicking related knee injuries on the footy field over the years), it would seem that he has medial ligament damage which should heal well if he keeps off it for a few days. Praise The Lord for that ! Psalm 30:2 O LORD my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.
Master 10 still has a terrible cough each evening and morning and today is the day that the doctor told me to fill the antibiotic prescription if he wasn’t better.
Miss 14, while packed with attitude to send her poor mother crazy, is injury free (for now.. LOL).
I must admit, I hit a pretty low moment this morning when trying to sort out how to get Master 12 to the doctor about his knee. It doesn’t happen often, but every now and then, I just want to cry my eyes out that I have a perfectly good (actually 2 perfectly good) cars in the garage, but can’t drive them. Due to different circumstances going on with others, I had to try 3 different people before finding someone who could take him. There may have been a scream into the pillow moment when I just wished so bad that I could drive him myself. I HAVE to draw on this scripture at these times… or I seriously will go crazy… (or become very bitter). Philipians 4:13 I can do everything through Him who gives me strength. However, I do have to have a giggle though about it, as shouldn’t ‘everything’ include driving a car ??? AAARRRGGHH !!!! But yes, I do realise that the ‘everything’ in this context does mean the struggles and restrictions I’m up against because of my limited eyesight.
In regards to our homeschooling journey, I have now officially sent off our withdrawal email for the end of this term. So, as of term 3, we will no longer be a DE family, but a fair dinkum’ homeschooling family. woot woot !! It means absolutely no changes for the kiddos, (continuing with same curriculum etc.) and not too much for me either really, just a change of address to where our test scores etc go. Our point of contact is still very close by also… only 2 suburbs away. :0)
There are no official social activities as a registered homeschooler, but there isn’t much anymore happening with our current school, hence the changeover. We will just need to make more effort with local homeschooling groups. There actually is a LOT on offer in our local area, it’s just getting there that is the issue. #Godwillprovide
If you were following along with my Paleo blog from a couple of months ago, our direction is going to be loosely based on the Makers Diet… (The Paleo diet has some unbiblical foundations which I don’t like.) basically it is just having as much non-processed foods as possible. Getting my Bellini Supercook (aka Super Bella) and changing over to those methods of food prep and cooking has certainly helped with that. I’m loving just how little ingredients I now use to whip up delicious, healthy meals from scratch. My kids now even love rice due to the yummy mushroom risotto I make regularly.
Enjoy your weekend peeps !!
