In my life this week…I had a scare! Ladybug (age 5) was playing with Papa (grandpa) and they were having a great time. I was in another room and all of a sudden I hear Papa yelling Ladybug's name. Papa is my step-dad and I had NEVER heard him yell like that. I go running into the other room to see Papa cradling Ladybug and her holding her mouth and crying. I don't know exactly what happened (and neither do they) but she was up on his shoulders and best we can determine is that she lost her balance at the same time he lost his grip and she fell. He tried to catch her but was only able to break her fall. I am so glad he was able to at least break her fall as she landed on her head/face. She had a fat lip, a bump on her forehead and a sore neck. We watched her for signs of a concussion and dehydration. Dehydration, you ask? Yes, we live in the Phoenix area and it was 110+ this week. After she hurt her lip she didn't drink much (it hurt) so we had to worry about dehydration. Luckily, the next morning she felt much better and started drinking her water again and was just fine. No signs of a concussion either!
In our homeschool this week…we didn't do much except read our new books we got as rewards from the Library Summer Reading Program. Also, Unicorn decided that she wanted to learn some Anatomy for science. So now I need to find resources that use proper scientific terms but are written for middle schoolers. She choose this topic after the scare with Ladybug. Unicorn want to learn more about concussions and other things that relate to the human body.
Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…we've been seeing a lot of Grandma and Papa this week!
My favorite thing this week was…was taking the kids to the library to turn in our June reading logs and pick out our prizes (books) for meeting our reading goals. We also picked up our reading logs for July!
working/not working for us…is living so far from Grandma and Papa (and soon, my sister and her hubby)!
thoughts I have…does anyone know of any anatomy type resources that might work for Unicorn. She is 11, reads at a HS level and comprehends at a 8-9 grade level. She wants to know about the body (parts as well as types of injuries, etc.). Thanks!!
Things I’m working on…finding a way to move closer to my family!
I’m reading…Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and The Geography of Bliss (the Library reward book).
I’m grateful for…NO concussion or dehydration! :D
I’m praying for…our path to become clear and the patience to wait for the answer to come.
