Sick day

Some days of homeschooling were hard and others enjoyable.  Some were long and others flew by.  Teaching the kids all day then making dinner and heading off to work made the day very busy and long.  Yet now, here in Spain, I am not really sure where my days have gone to.  Maybe it the eight times a day I walk to school or the time consuming process of making three meals a day and all those dishes or the time I spend trying to translate school papers.  But just the same some days are long and drawn out and others quick and enjoyable.  On Tuesday October wasn’t feeling well and Scarlett had an ugly looking rash. They both slept from late afternoon on Monday so I kept them home on Tuesday. (Lavender went to school). While they rested some, we caught up on our American homework.  Lots of math and reading, a little writing.  We didn’t watch any movies, they played very little.  We really did lots of review and learning and with very little nagging or complaining.  We need to keep them on track with their American grade levels while we are here as well as having them be immersed in Spanish at school but the reality is we haven’t been as consistent as we need to be.  Tuesday was nice. Yes, I was smearing goop on Scarlett’s ugly rash every hour but I was also very much enjoying being home with (two of) my kids and enjoying teaching them.

    We do miss them, but it’s been fun hearing about Spain. I’ll have to msg you for the photo password because Caitlin wants to see October’s horse. 🙂
