A Little Surgery Can't Keep Us Down.

Well, we’re at the end of another very full week here at the Two Moms’ Homeschool.

Baby boy had some outpatient surgery on Monday. Of course we went from being scheduled at 11:30 AM to not getting seen until after 3 PM. We didn’t leave the hospital until after 6 PM! It was the longest day ever. I don’t know why doctors use different clocks than the rest of us.

Anywho, all of that is beside the point. Baby Boy’s surgery went very well. He was out of commission all day Monday and Tuesday, about half of his usual self on Wednesday and progressively got better throughout the week. Today, Friday, he is back to his old self. It’ll be a little while before we know if the operation was a complete success or not, but things are definitely looking up. I’m crossing my fingers and praying. Lord knows we could use a break.

We did do some school work Wednesday through Friday. We hit the highlights pretty good and did some Marine Biology lab work. Baby Boy LOVES lab work; he is a science fiend.

Here's our homemade model of an annelid (a water worm). Pretty good, huh?

Oh, and the best news ever - - we finally finished Algebra 1. We have been at it for what seems like forever. We are so happy to be done. On to Geometry. Wish us luck!

I’ve been very moody this week. It’s a good thing I still have a place to call home. I guess this has been a very emotional week for all of us. Mom #2 and I hate to see Baby Boy in any kind of pain. He’s all we have. I don’t know what we’re going to do when he grows up and moves away. Oh, I can already feel tears welling up; I’d better change the subject.

Mom #2 still doesn’t have a job. She thinks she does, but she doesn’t. Well, she is working on something that is supposed to pan out into a paycheck – eventually. I guess we’ll have to wait and see how this all plays out. I’m hoping and praying it will all result in a nice hefty paycheck. Cross your fingers!
