We’re home from the winds of Northwest Texas! We had a great visit with my daughter and especially enjoyed the treat of watching her college soccer game on Tuesday.
We tried to keep our schooling on schedule, but failed to get it all done due to about 900 miles on the road. Still, it was educational…the boys got to see lots of fields, crops, and oil wells — something we don’t normally have regular exposure to, and believe it or not,…it actually fit in with Chapter Two of our Math lessons where the setting and manipulatives revolve around fields and planting, etc.
The family cat has decided that my bedroom needs an exorcism or something! She is fine on top of my bed, but will NOT stand on the floor without laying her ears down, and crouching low to the ground. She sniffs and sniffs as though something were under my bed and she refuses to get anywhere near it!
She jumps at the least little noise, and is acting verrrrryyyy weird! I’m thinking….if it were a mouse or a bug, she wouldn’t be scared. So….the only assumption that I can make after that is that it is a snake or ?????, —thus my reason for wanting to borrow Cherie’s machete and why I have slept on the couch for the last three nights 😉
We’ve also been home bound and missed our first coop meeting due to the continual West Texas wind we inhaled during our trip. The three year old has been coughing for two nights, but no seizures as of yet. (Praise the Lord!)
My head feels like it is going to split open, and there’s a porcupine in my throat. –for real….I think.
So…we’re playing catch up this weekend on our school work, wondering if we should move out of our bedroom all together, and keeping the Kleenex company in business.
Sounds like fun, huh?!
