Wishing You a Good School Transition

As a stay-at-home homeschooling mother, I take my quiet time, or my super-productive time, when I can get it. There's always more than enough to do, so a break from the children and the noise is usually a working break, rarely a true do-nothing break. Sometimes having any break means staying home from things like the church picnic on a hot and humid day, so the whole house can get cleaned in one full swoop, or the homeschooling schedule can be designed or tweaked.

So last Sunday, I stayed home with one child while the rest of the family went to the church picnic. Maybe you know that moms and dads don't always agree on safety rules? Well, that includes climbing trees around here. I think without a spotter, and without sticking to lower branches, it's just too dangerous. Husband feels otherwise because as a child he climbed trees plenty and never fell.

One of my children decided I needed a ride in an ambulance to make my mothering life complete. I can't give details because said child thinks accidents are embarrassing, but suffice it to say we have a little more stress on our hands now. After many, many tests, the child is mostly but not totally out of the woods after a concussion and an overnight hospital stay. We go back in two weeks to hopefully lose the neck brace and on that note if you say a quick prayer I would appreciate it.

Hopefully you don't disappear for good, because I really like you guys. Have a good transition back to school!

Saying some prayers for all of you, most especially your injured child. A few weeks before school started my youngest was injured as well. Jumping off the side of the front porch she fractured her foot and has been wearing a walking air cast ever since. I am thankful she did not need crutches because they would cause a real headache at school. Praying for speedy recovery.

Thank you, Margie. So good to hear from you. I am sorry about your daughter's injury! How long will she be in the cast?

Margie said...

She will have the cast for six weeks total. We have two more weeks to go. Assuming that she has healed properly at the next appointment, she should be done.
