Pray For G!!

G is in the hospital. He is very sick. We're not sure what is going on. The doctor would tend to think that it would be appendicitis, but there is no sign of it on the CT scan. Then again, he is so thin perhaps it would not show up. He is being monitored overnight and I will see the surgeon again at around 8 a.m. tomorrow.

I wouldn't ordinarily be worried by a slight fever, a headache and some bad stomach pain, but G is the type that is *sicksicksick* for about an hour and a half, and then is WELL and bugging you to take him to school. Then you're stuck with a WELL child with lots of energy who says there's nothing to doooooooo for the next ... ohhh... 12 hours. And I'm a stickler. If you were too sick to go to school this morning, there's no Nintendo or computer time for ya. Sorry.

G is happily playing away at the Playstation at the hospital. Every now and then I see him holding his stomach. He is given some drugs to help him not feel yucky, but he does anyway.

I am worried. Please say a little prayer for us tonight and tomorrow, would ya? I'll update when I can.


  1. So sorry to hear this. Kids in the hospital is no fun. We'll be praying for G!

  2. I'm so sorry that G is in pain. I will be praying for him -- and you and D!

  3. Prayers for you & G. Hope all is well soon.

  4. Oh man, poor little guy! I hope they find the cause very, very soon. So sorry. :(

  5. Im so sorry. I will definitely pray!

  6. I am thinking of you and darling 'G'... and hoping all is well and he doesn't need surgery! Our son Russell had appendisitis aged 13 (so they thought) so they took his appendix out and it wasn't even that afterall!

  7. Poor G. I do hope they can get to the bottom of this soon. Praying for you both. x

  8. Praying for comfort and healing for G. . . and I guess the lost tooth is nothing in hindsight . . .

  9. Prayers that he is well in no time! (((hugs)))

  10. THANKS everyone for praying! He's doing much better and have posted a new update.

Reading Curriculum: ABeka Book and BJU Press

Did you know that in the state of Missouri, homeschoolers must teach reading as a separate subject?  I don't know how anyone could homeschool well without teaching their child to read... but OK. 

I got many of my ABeka books used and collected them over time.  I'm glad I came across these readers early in my homeschooling years.  It teaches children to read step-by-step.  I don't think I've seen a more effective reading program for the elementary years.  The children love the stories, and what I appreciate about them is that there is a rich and varied language even in simple-to-read books in this series. 

My set is pretty old, and some are even from the 1960's and no longer listed in the reading series.  I think if I had to do things over again somehow, I think I'd just spend on a curriculum set and be done with it.  That's the thing, though, with homeschooling.  By the time you figure out what the perfect curriculum is for you, your children have graduate…

Homeschooling is NOT So Hard.

I wish I'd have known this starting out. I wish I'd have known that it's actually LESS work to just homeschool your child, than to be an "involved parent" at school.

We've enjoyed elementary school with our older boys. *Most* of the teachers were actually pretty competent and caring (the others, I save for another blog post, another day...). We had the children involved in extra activities like the Spanish Club or Service Club, or choir, and they got a fair bit out of the experience.

But it's a LOT of work.

You get about a ton of worksheets that must be done by a certain time. Usually on a day when you're sick or have no time. You get the phone calls about this or that, and about a zillion sheets per day that sometimes contain important news, so you MUST go through them daily. The schools also *love* to throw in half days, teacher in-service days and early dismissals. Not so bad, unless you have children at more than one school and the schedu…

Holiday Gifts for the Homeschool Teacher!

Merrymaking hint:  leave this post up on your phone/ computer for your family to "accidentally" find!  Let the magic begin!

 All teachers love a little appreciation every now and then, including homeschoolers.   I don't know about you, though, but I don't want any apple crap.  So first rule:  no apple crap! 

Otherwise I'm pretty open.  I love getting gifts, even if it's just something small or simple.  One thing I love is when my children want to help out and make lunch or clean up or put their laundry away.  Or just behave themselves and get their math done.  This is a really big thing when you think about it.  

And from the adults in my life, the gift of coffee always shows love - or rather, someone not wanting an "I need coffee" emergency in the middle of winter after a big snowstorm.  Somehow, I always have a lot of coffee in my pantry during the winter months.  (Guess why.) Thanks, D!
