General Update

School has been going fairly well. We are only a couple of days ahead of the written lesson plans in Language Arts now, and only a day behind in Science. I don’t know how the year-rounders do it, but we’ve moved Child #1 ahead several weeks in Math to where she will be learning new material instead of just reviewing what she already knows. We are right on track in History, Literature, and Religion.

Child #2 was explaining her knowledge of the planets to her dad and exclaimed, “Uranus is the widest!”

On a more sober note, my father is in the hospital today undergoing some tests for some abdominal pain he has been having. He described his pain as a 6 or 7 on a 1-10 (10 being the worst) scale. That translates to a 12 or 13 for us mere mortals. When Child #2 said her prayers on Thursday night, she prayed that “Papa gets better and doesn’t die. If he dies, please make Gran-Ma die, too so we don’t just have a bossy Gran-Ma with no Nice Papa.” Child #2 is never at a loss for stating her beliefs or wishes in her prayers – no matter how un-appropriate they are. If you are the praying type, please say an extra prayer that the diagnosis is correct, easy-to-treat, and not bad. Thank you.

  1. I guess that is a bit of a compliment for your father from your daughter. Grand-ma could use some “good press” though.

    I wish you father the best.
