I can't believe it's been a week since my last post. I have been pretty sick. Actually I have been under the weather since December 16. It started as just a simple cold. Then progressively got worse. Last week when I woke up my throat was swollen so much it was almost closed up. Boy did it hurt!! Then on top of that I was coughing a lot. Nothing we did seemed to help. So I finally went to the doctor. Well my doctor is on vacation so I had to see someone else. Something I do not like! This person had a student with her so was running behind. The student came in and examined me. BUT the NP I was seeing did not even look at me or my throat. They did do a strep test which was negative. I just knew I had something. My ears began to hurt so much I wanted to cry...but that would just lead to more coughing. LOL!! So when I started having numbness in my face last night my husband took me to the ER. Low and behold I have a double ear infection and a upper respiratory infection. Geech!! The numbness in my face scared the daylights out of me! Of course I thought I was having a stroke! I am so thankful I do not get sick very often. So I'm sure I'll be healthy the rest of 2014! I am rejoicing in the Lord that I am on my way to recovery!
So here are some neat things we are going to be learning during the upcoming month. I mentioned here before that we have friends who were missionaries to Russia. They are now back in the states but we grew to love Russia through them. So this is a perfect fit for our family! Olympics and Russia will go hand in hand.
So we are starting off with a refresher study of Russia from Homeschool Share.
We are also going to do a quick study of the Nutcracker. We usually watch this at Christmas but time just got away from us with me being sick.
Then we will take a few days and learn about the history of the Olympics. We will be using a little of the Ancient Greece lapbook from Homeschool Share.
The Sochi 2014 Olympic website also has a ton of interesting articles on all of the athletes. But one website above all else interests me the most.... the one of my Dad's cousin!! His website, Kyle Carr will give you a little history of him. Go on over and check it out. You can even order a "Team Carr" T-shirt. I cannot wait to order one...or many!
