There isn’t a lot to blog about this week but I really like to post at least once a week.
We had a wonderful Easter. We went to church and then to my Dad’s for lunch. Keilee is the oldest grandchild so there was no Easter egg hunt. It made me a little sad. The picture of Keilee and my Dad makes me smile to see.
See the bottom left picture? She was very upset that she didn’t have money to buy me something for Easter so she made this. It is a baby food jar covered in glitter. It has my favorite verse on it, “”For I know the plans I have for you”. Inside was a nail, a rock, a little handmade cross and 3 bible verses. I LOVED it. I asked her if she found it on Pinterest and she said no, she just made it up.
Our writing group met and it was a good day. We did some Earth Day pages and then they wrote. They also did Mapping the World Through Art and watched some TED talks.
My Mom’s best friend Patsy had an outpatient procedure on Wednesday morning. She asked if I could take her and stay with her. So Keilee and I picked her up early Wednesday morning and stayed most of the day with her. Keilee woke up feeling bad and continued feeling bad the rest of the day. I took her to the doctor on Thursday because she felt so incredibly bad and she is never sick. That is probably the 4th or 5th time she has ever been to the doctor because she was sick. Instead of giving me a $5 prescription he gave me a list with $30 worth of over the counter medicine. She is feeling a little better this morning [Saturday] but not 100%.
Very little ‘school’ got done this week. She wrote and read a lot and watched some documentaries. We also watched “Pearl Harbor” which is a very good account of the bombing of Pearl Harbor.
My favorite picture this week. Nomad can be the worse dog ever. He barks at everything and doesn’t mind half the time. But he lets us do just about anything to him for pictures. Here is is researching this strange creature who is living in his house.
Hopefully this week will be healthier and more productive.
