as hoped

The day pretty much went just as I had wanted. Tabitha worked on violin, French, her lapbook, math, a Girl Scout project, and spelling. Oh we had fun with spelling today. I guess I was in a mood and made all the words go together in a storyline of Johnny and his mother. The words were things like raged, enraged, disengaging, wagged, bagged, and such. Let’s just say Johnny was naughty, his mother was not happy, and it ended when Johnny “zigzagged” out of Mom’s arms and ran away from home. We plan to continue the adventures tomorrow, though I probably should prepare it in advance in order to meet the kids’ expectations.

Daisy’s lessons weren’t nearly so silly though the nursery rhyme pocket we did was on “Sing a Song of Sixpence” which is my most loved nursery rhyme ever. Daisy had fun snipping of my nose, repeatedly. Though this version said the blackbird snapped off her nose which is different but at least the meaning is the same. Daisy also did math and she read to me and I read to her but that’s it as she did a lot of writing in math and coloring and cutting for the pocket so her hands were tired.

When I wasn’t working with the kids, I spent my time being frustrated by various computers for all different reasons. This evening though they all seem to be behaving so hopefully that will continue on that path tomorrow.

Unfortunately Daisy was running a fever this evening. As she had zero other symptoms I’m chalking it up to teething in a manner of speaking. She often got fevers as a baby when a tooth was coming in and she currently has a few teeth trying to make their way through so it actually makes sense. On the other hand, I have a sore throat and a slightly stuffy nose, but I did have those exact symptoms 2 weeks ago and it lasted less than 24 hours so who the heck knows what’s going on with either one of us? We’ll know in the morning, that’s for sure.

Chris made a run for a chocolate shake for my throat and then it’s Survivor time. G’Night!
