Update on Our School Situation
Here is the Update on Our School Situation. The kids have been in school for 2 weeks. In those 2 weeks, I have done a whole lot of nothing. I spot clean the house. Supper is usually done by about 10 am because I can cook uninterrupted. I pet the dogs and the cats. Chip, my outside cat, and I have gotten to be besties. There have been days I’ve just mindlessly scrolled through the internet.
Lest We Forget
Still did an infusion for Hunter, one day. Baseball drop-off, pickup, and a game 3 days a week. A deer through a windshield. There were a massage and 2 dates with a bestie for lunch/breakfast respectively. Oh, and naps. I’ve taken naps. Homeschooling. I still have one kid here trying to finish her schoolwork.
I have a hair appointment. Then there is another all-day doctor’s appointment with Hunter. Again, drop-off, pickup, and another baseball game 3 times a week. Horse therapy. A birthday. And…homeschooling.
Maybe I do still do things.
First 2 Weeks with Daniel and Jude
Daniel is coming into his own. It takes him a bit more time to do his schoolwork. He has been dubbed “the smart kid” in his history class. That title, he has beamed with pride. He is making friends and eating more than he probably should. He does love food. I believe he is finding his way and that brings me joy.
We have discovered that in Jude’s apprehension to wear his hearing aid, he is now okay with it. Once the student’s asked their 5000 questions, he is now considered bionic. The obviousness of his skin color has been met with pride. He is wearing his heritage and proud of where he came from. He is jovial, excited, and thriving.
Then There is Hunter
Hunter tends to express his needs/wants with a great and determined expression. He now has 2 girlfriends..PA and then the girl with the long pretty hair. Food has been challenging. As he has some dietary restrictions, he eats what he can at school, and then I pack food for him.
On the first day of the “strike” system and he gets one for calling a kid “bad.” Good times. He has met the nurse with a good amount of blood and scrapes. Apparently, in the stampede to go outside he got tripped up. We do homework at night and he is focused. He is loving it.
Noah Started College
He began this past Tuesday, so as of this posting, he will have been there a full week. His nerves were shot. He was so very nervous and anxious. I think he is finding his footing but he has yet to experience the full-fledged experience of college. I foresee that it is going to shock him. He’s got this though. I know that he is smart and determined.
She has started the first day of her last year of college. Gracious, she is overwhelmed but gaining traction. She moved to another apartment and is getting her feet wet in the world of being in a fast-paced last year. I’m so proud of her.
Grayce Plugging Away
She is still working on finishing her last year of high school. I was hoping that she would be done by the end of December but I am not sure. For a fact, according to the state of Kentucky’s requirements, she does have enough to graduate. I, personally, just have some things I want her to complete.
We have many irons in the fire with what our next step is. Yet, we just don’t know where to move. Until I have a clear direction from Jesus…we stand still and do what we have been doing.
Ben and Bug
They are not in school but working hard. I’m super proud of them both too! My children bring me such joy. I’m blessed beyond reason.
