Still Here

I'm still here. I'm still trying to get my school room set up and get back on top of the housework after a 2.5 day migraine and 1 day postdrome. I swear, every day that I'm out of commission equates to what seems like about 3 days behind on housework. My husband also took several vacation days this month, so I've been spending time with him and the girls. Sweet Pea's therapy is going well. She's getting better and better at expressing herself vocally. I'm excited to start some preschool activities with her, just as soon as I can get everything set-up. Doll Baby is getting more talkative by the day. At last count she's using about 30 words pretty consistently. She has also developed her older sister's LOVE of books. I hope everyone has a great weekend! Mrs. P

Long Week

This past week was a long one, capped off with a tummy flu that made Doll Baby run a fever and throw up once and caused DH and I a day of queasiness. PTL, Sweet Pea was spared. I'm still setting up our homeschool area and will post pics when it's done. Have a great weekend! Mrs. P

I didn't have much time to blog last week and might not this week either. My husband and I realized that even after several hours per day of ABA therapy, our bright little Sweet Pea is still bored and needs more stimulation in the evenings. I'm hoping that doing some preschool activities with her in the evening will give her the stimulation she needs because even structured play just isn't cutting it. She honestly loves doing academic type things and showing what she knows, so I've been getting our homeschool room (the eat-in area of our kitchen) ready. I'm going to keep it low-key and stick mostly to simple things like learning to cut with scissors, pasting, simple hymns, Bible songs, and Bible stories etc. She is trying hard to learn to read her books on her own though and since she already knows her letters and letter sounds, I'll probably do some word families and sight words with her as well. I'll post pictures when I can. I have a lot of stuff prepared, but about the only thing I have up at this point is the banner I made baring the name of our homeschool: Legacy of Faith Christian Academy. I hope everyone has a very productive and blessed Monday! Mrs. P

Scripture Memorization Site

Doll Baby has been trying to cut a molar the past several days and has not been sleeping well to say the least. I've been in survival mode and in a practically zombie-like state due to being woken up a half-dozen times a night, hence the lack of blogging. I did want to let people know about a great scripture memory site though. It's 100% free, you can pick which version you want to memorize from, and it keeps track of everything for you. The only thing that I don't like is that even verses you have had memorized for years go into the "learning" phase and aren't considered "memorized" until you get it correct enough times to get the interval at which the site quizzes you  on that verse to 30+ days. It's not really that big of a deal though if you're new to memorization and don't have that many verses memorized yet. It's also a great site for kids. Having typing skills would be a plus as hunt-and-peck typing of all of the verses would probably get frustrating. The site is called Memverse. It will even send you e-mail reminders if you haven't been on in a few days.

Well, I have a growing to-do list that I need to tackle, so I best get off the computer and get to it.

Awesome Bible Reading Checklist

I've been kind of disjointed in my reading lately. I tend to skip around in my reading, but when reading like that, it's hard to keep track of what you've read and when...until now. I remembered a Bible reading checklist that I had seen on another blog. A printable version of that checklist can be found here. When printed, the boxes look to be small enough to write a date if you write small and with a fine-point pen or pencil. That's important to me because ideally, I like to know how long it has been since I read something. The checklist will be easy enough to 3-hole punch and put in my Bible study binder.

I hope you find this helpful!

You want the toys. I want the tuna.
Let's see if we can come to some sort of agreement.

That's one of our cats, Buddy. He's actually a very sweet cat, but the expression on his face in this photo necessitated a snarky caption. I figured I'd get some kind of post up since I haven't really been inspired to write about anything in particular this week.

Have a great weekend.
