Just sitting here eating some singed angel wings. Ever had those? They're just toasted angel food cake slices. Yummy! Anyhoo... gonna admit something gross. I've got the pink eye :( I'm praying I didn't pass it along to 100 other choir members at rehearsal last night. I've never had it before and thought I just had a clogged tear duct. I woke up this morning with an incredibly unpleasant feeling in my blood shot eye. I went to the doctor and she informed me of the "very contagious pink eye". Great! I felt pretty miserable this afternoon. However, after my second dose of eye drops this evening, I'm finally feeling some comfort. =)
Schooling is going well. Man, am I grateful for the flexible schedule! I've had to work in a few doctor appointments between Maddie's allergic reaction to a topical cream, my vertigo and pink eye. We've been doing school throughout the day. It breaks up the day nicely though. She's doing pretty well, too. She still has some aversions to writing anything, but we're working on it. How do I encourage her to not be sloppy? I'd love some suggestions!! She can do her work, but she doesn't care that it's a mess. And, she loves to doodle on all of her papers. I'm ok with that except that I'd prefer that she not curly q all of her "g"s until I know she can write them correctly. lol As for math, we've sailed through to Lesson 8. I think we'll be spending a little more time here. It's definitely a new concept for her (and quite frankly, it seems pretty advanced to me for this young), but she's starting to catch on. The manipulatives have really helped! The concept is finding the unknowns. (Think of finding X in an algebraic equation.) I'm fine staying here until she's ready to push forward. She's progressing well in her reading materials. I just wish I could get her to want to read for fun on her own. :/ She LOVES for me to read to her, so I do not discourage that. We've moved on and added a lot to our reading list.
Maddie started preschool Wednesday (Monday was orientation). I think she's loving it. She's going to the same Christian Academy that Audrey went to - and has the same teacher. She loves that she has to take her lunch to school. ;) Here are a few pictures....
