The Week of Sick and Doctors And Not Much Else…

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.

If you haven’t read this article by Matt Walsh about homeschooling please do.  I LOVE it.

Happy weekend,

  1. I’m so sorry to hear that Keilee has been sick. I hope she is better by now. We still pray for you both daily and think about you often. I love how you always have had such fun even when life isn’t perfect. The picture of Nomad is hilarious and he is quite the patient doggie to let you all pose him. You would never see one of our cats doing that. :-)
    I hope your week is going well and you have been safe from storms.

  2. Karen, I adore the picture of your dog! Too funny that he’ll sit and allow you to pose him for shots! I’m sorry your daughter wasn’t feeling well. Hope she’s better now. The homemade gift is priceless – I love to hear about Keilee’s creativity! Blessings!

  3. I’m sorry Keilee wasn’t feeling well last week. Hope she’s doing better now. Her little jar of treasures is adorable! What a sweet heart she is! The dog is adorable too!

  4. I love Keilee’s gift. So very thoughtful. I would be a very happy mummy if I received a present like that. She’s such a sweetie-pie.
    I hope the illness disappears soon.

  5. Love Nomad’s photo. Hope Keilee is feeling 100% soon. Just love her gift. Just beautiful. I feel so out of touch with everyone lately. So glad I stopped by tonight. :-)

  6. I love the picture of Nomad. Yes, I am starting to feel my boys getting older too. I keep holding onto it but I know that they will soon be too old for things. I love the Earth Day page. Does she do the lettering freehand? I am sorry there were doctors and sickness and I hope that everyone is much better soon.

  7. I hope Keilee is feeling much, much better now.
    Nomad is so serious about his studies. :) When does he start college level courses?

    Love the art work. Have you introduced her to zentangles yet?
    I’m still loving it, as it makes me feel competent as an artist.
