I thought for sure our youngest had an ear infection. So I took him in to his Ped to find out why on earth he is such a crabby baby, not sleeping through the night even near age 1. It turns out that Noah is just a super fussy child. There was no pill to give him, nothing that we could do to change that fact. He is what he is. It can be such a bummer to hear such things, you know???
I have been dedicating my time this week to our annual testing, or at least the hunt for the supplies and the testing service. This year I had to do some research with the assessment testing since there have been changes and shifts in trend. I like to stay informed about such things because I really do Homeschool so that my kids can have the best possible options for their lives. It works for us and I just really do wish lots of success for them in the future. I will have to be honest, there was so much out there I wrote a quick post about it on our family website Cleaving to Christ Homeschool, if you are interesting in diving into that deep pool. If you have school age kids in any educational track, it is still good to be ‘in the know’ about what the assessments look like and what they are looking for.
I have a great couple of days. With blogger acting up I got serious about grading the last of our school books and I got serious about sweeping up the dog hair in the basement… oh I got serious about getting out my summer stuff and putting away my beloved sweaters and such.
We have had over night kiddy guests and birthday parties, we have cleaned the house nicely and even run around outside. I actually scrubbed the entire are around my jetted tub. So really, I was not at all upset about the blogger being down. I needed it, my kids needed it and my house needed. I hope you all found great productive things to do. I am putting this out now since I didn’t get to plug in to FF with my peeps.
