Thank you for all of the input and responses to yesterday’s post. I will be commenting on many of them individually. In the end, Tucker chose not to go to theater camp yesterday. He was so sick with worry he threw up twice before we left. Once he knew he did not have to go, he had a great day. In the evening, I sat with him alone, and he let me know he is afraid some will happen to me. That is why he is afraid to let me out of his sight. The people at Beads of Courage were so kind. When I ordered the beads for Tucker I left a note about the anxiety and how I hoped he would get the beads before the August 27 surgery, and the woman responded to let me know she would be sending them out today! I will also be looking into local resources for him, since we live 100 miles from the Children’s Hospital.
Yesterday was a bit of a whirlwind, dropping off the kids, grocery shopping, taking Judah to an appointment, then finally meeting with friends for a sock knitting lesson. While we moms knit, the kids splashed happily in the pool. Unfortunately, we could only stay an hour because I needed to pick the kids up from theater camp, but we had a fabulous time nonetheless. And I started a lovely new sock! Now Marie, wake up and check Facebook, I’m stuck…
Just a few weeks left of summer vacation. I was planning to use Monday to do some intense school planning, but ended up spending the day unexpectedly at Missoula Children’s Theater. So I hope to get a significant chunk of the school planning done today. I am working on a blog post full of links and resources for planning the homeschool year that I hope will be helpful to you. Judah was thrilled to arrive home from his trip to discover he has a much coveted part-time job as parking monitor at the Community College! He and Tilly are gearing up for a busy year of Community College, Tilly’s first and Judah’s second (and last).
Here to a new day!
