since I have posted here on my blog. I had considered giving up my blog as I really felt the need to concentrate more on school this year and spend less time on the computer. It is so easy for me to get wrapped up reading all the wonderful blogs out there and I end up losing track of time.
I really like my blog and have miss posting on it and reading all of my favorite blogs. I am going to attempt to re-enter the blogging world in moderation.
We had a few unexpected trials at the beginning of our school year and it through us off track. We are getting back into the swing of things and are really enjoying our school. We are getting ready to have our first get together with our History Girls Club. We have finished the Felicity books and are going to be having a Colonial Tea Party next week. We are really looking forward to this and I even stepped out of my comfort zone and sewed my daughter a colonial dress and then made a matching colonial dress for her doll to wear to the party. Whew...was this a stretch for someone that has never sewed before :) We are also doing Along the Alphabet Path with a few exceptions. First we have pumped it up a bit to make it a little more on Reagan's level. Next I re-wrote (just for our personal use) the section of the story that involves the Catholic Saints. What I ended up doing is inserting a bible story that goes along with each letter of the alphabet. I will write more about that in a separate post. Anyway, we are really enjoying Alphabet Path and will continue that for the remainder of the year. It falls nicely along with our Studying Creation with Botany co-op we are in. Overall I am really pleased with school this year so far.
I have had a few health issues going on at the same time. After undergoing a colonoscopy and EGD (scope of the esophagus and stomach) we have ruled out all of the really bad stuff and we believe now that it might be IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). I would just be happy if we could get this under control and not feel yucky all of the time. I would humbly ask that you add me to your prayer list that the doctors might be able to help me. Anyone else out there with this issue that could offer me any insight into this?
Thanks for stopping by and visiting me, and I look forward to getting caught up with everyone!
