Sometimes you just can't do everything. Last week, I couldn't start my Finally Friday post and that's OK.
Last week I wrote about how to build a base of knowledge on any subject and then started packing for a camping trip while all three of my kids battled colds. This week, I battled a sinus infection and allergies and tended to my youngest who had an ear infection. My husband helps when he isn't at work, but he is also battling a cold. Obviously, not much got done except for trips to the doctor and to the classes that I could take my two healthy kids to. I finally had to load everyone into the car for a Costco run when we ate the last three slices of bread, the last three eggs and the last two apples for breakfast.
With a sinus infection, it's hard to talk and teach and even harder to read from a book because breathing and talking both have to happen from the mouth, so not much happened according to plan school wise, but school did happen. I'm working on a post about how to continue homeschooling with no voice soon.
Really the only thing that saved me from opening the Pandora's box of letting my kids have unlimited screen time was a set of audiobooks that completely enthralled all of my kids from ages 4-12! Oh, and I am really enjoying them, too!
