"Thought breeds thought; children familiar with great thoughts take as naturally to thinking for themselves as the well-nourished body takes to growing; and we must bear in mind that growth, physical, intellectual, moral, spiritual, is the sole end of education." ~ Charlotte Mason

Home School Weekly Wrap Up : Week 10

This week started out rather oddly. Graham had an allergic reaction to something in his environment. We believe it is the mold from outside. It's been a very wet and mild November and he starts to get allergies in the fall and winter but this was quite bad! A rash covered his body from head to toe and his face swelled. We were off to the Doctor and he was put on some cortisone and an antihistamine to help clear it up. He's doing much better now but we've kept in doors and did some deep cleaning of his bedroom along with two hepa filters to keep his room dust free.

The result is that we had a lazy relaxing week. We did seat work but we did more reading then usual. I pulled out the Usborne books and scattered them about the house in strategic areas. The kids have been pouring over them, absorbed in them! I read a lot quite a bit and Heather did a ton of reading on her own. They did quite a bit of drawing/art this week. I love weeks like this where books are absorbed and the TV isn't turned on once, nor the computer or any other gadget. We don't utulize them often anyway but when our week is free and clear of them completely I feel GOOD about it!

Next week will be back to the 'normal' schedule but it was nice to take things easier when our little man wasn't feeling so well. And it was nice to be able to spend time together as a family, not having to go anywhere or do anything!
