So we didn't have school.
Here are some of the things we did do . . . in the order I found them on the camera.
|Baymax tried to eat a green marker.|
|Super Star took a picture of the early morning mist on the soccer field.|
|She also took a picture of our cat killing a mouse.|
|We slept off our illnesses.|
|We had a break in the vomiting just long enough to go on a field trip with our homeschool group (scheduled 2 months ago) to a local urban farm--13.5 acres in the city that were formerly vacant and now produce well over $50K of organic food per year.|
|We all helped plant a row of garlic for next spring.|
|The farmers are a couple with a preschooler. They're building their own off-the-grid home. It's really cool! If you look closely you can see Rose Red, Pixie, and Little Sister reflected in the door as Rose Red takes the picture.|
|We painted with red and blue.|
|We saw wild turkeys marching up the hill out of our back yard.|
|We painted with yellow and red.|
|We did fancy hair and watched Studio C--this was a treat for me because I was allowed to nap for an hour while this happened!!!!!|
We read aloud together.
Pixie made a book of some of her best photos to show off at YW in Excellence next week.
We did a lot of laundry.
I took Nature Angel to the dermatologist and found out that she has an auto-immune disorder which causes her body to attack her hair follicles. 7 steroid shots were administered, and, if all goes well, will allow her hair to grow back. It might be a one shot deal, a recurring problem, or a sign of future auto-immune problems. We don't know.
I'm hoping for a one shot deal.
(Pixie pointed out that I made Nature Angel sound bald. In reality she has a bald patch 4 cm in diameter on the left side of her head--which makes it extremely hard to do her hair.)
We ate popsicles, saltine crackers, and 7Up.
Now I'm fighting mastitis. I just administered my first dose of my tried-and-true home remedy against mastitis--2 oz of apple cider vinegar taken internally. Two more doses--one tonight and one tomorrow morning should set me right again!
We're ready for a new week--a healthy one!!!!
