We are still here in case you were wondering.
DD is still home today but I think she can go back to school tomorrow. She's coughing less. She had a really bad night of coughing last night. I really thought she would go to school today but when it came time to go she burst into tears, crying here tummy and throat hurt. "Really bad!" I tried calming her and then talking to her but it was no use. I told her go put her PJs on and get back in bed and so she did. She studied her spelling words and read a little. Then she slept for a long time. It did her a lot of good.
Mom's started feeling poorly now so I'm taking every opportunity to nap I can. I actually feel better today than yesterday. Thank goodness! I really can't be sick right now. Too hard to be sick and take care of sick kids at the same time. I just keep chanting.... "I refuse to be sick! I refuse to be sick!"
DS has been working on his school work. He seems to be very slow this week. He's heart is just not entirely in it right now. I don't rush him but I do expect his work to be done at the end of each day. He's done that but very slowly and in his own time. It's funny. Sometimes he finishes in just a few hours and then other times it takes all day and he's usually doing the same amount of work! Oh well, I guess that's a nice thing about homeschooling.
That's about it here. DH is a little down but I guess we all would be if we were in war zone far away from family. We are half way there! Yea!
