Good morning! I'm falling behind with replying to comments lately on my blog. With everyone being sick, it's not a priority to be honest, so I went back over the last bit and pulled out any questions i've been asked and will answer them in a post instead!
Here we go!
Do you talk about your home school decision anywhere on your blog, or would you want to do a post on that for those of use curious? I'm always interest in how you can do the schooling on days like this? Is it independent study? Or just do what you can and catch up later? Curious how that works?
I have posted "why" yes, and if you type "homeschooling" into the search bar, random posts will come up with that info i'm sure. However, HS'ing is not the focus on my blog so I don't post very much about it. Schooling on 'sick days' doesn't happen. In my opinion worksheets & workbooks don't equal 'true learning', rather than a rote memorization of "facts" some people seem to think kids need to know. So if we miss a day, miss 2 days, whatever, it doesn't bother me and I don't make my kids "catch-up". They learn daily, life is learning. We don't trudge through school work when we're sick, being sick is enough to deal with on its own, so we simply take it easy and let life happen!
I hope your children and your husband are feeling better by now, and pray that no one else caught the infection. How did Mya's allergy testing go the other day? Did you get any answers? We have quite a few food allergies in my family too, one of which is a life-threatening peanut allergy. It's been a lot of drama over the years. Not the good kind of drama, either. I hope it won't be too hard on her or on you!
The first allergist appointment was an absolute waste of time in my opinion. We went to see an allergist who took a family history on allergies, gave Mya a quick physical, deemed her healthy then said we should just go see my allergist. He told us to keep her away from treenuts & peanuts as I had been doing. So now we wait to see my allergist.
Ok now you have me interested, what is a kleenex pouch, is it for the little pocket sized or for the box?
A kleenex pouch is a cute little pouch that you slip the little travel packs of kleenex into. :) They're cute, here's a couple photos:
The lanyards look lovely. Will you be offering these as part of your customs in the future?
Yes, they're $20.00/each & shipping.
I don't know if that's a mirror or window in the picture but wouldn't it open things up nicely? Maybe to reflect the light from a window? Cant have enough light in the winter, eh?
I never think of these things... in the photo it appears to be a mirror. I'll have to look into something like that because yes, it would "open" up their room a bit. They do have a nice big window in their bedroom which lets in a tonne of light thankfully! :)
Now I have to run as my sister is here and we need to pull apart the bunk beds & set up the new beds! Wish us luck! LOL!!! Enjoy your day!
