This past week has been busy! Here is a quick re-cap:
Semaiah, after her shots last week, either got sick or had a bad reaction to her shots, or both. To make a long story short, we ended up in the ER with her last Thursday where we spent all day ruling out a bunch of scary stuff! My really content and calm baby was an inconsolable crying mess with a rash from head to toe. The drs. said it was most likely a virus, although the initial fever and fussiness was probably attributable to the vaccinations. Haven came down with similar symptoms last weekend so a diagnosis of a virus is not unlikely. However, I think we will be waiting on her 4 month shots.
Katria had her 5 year clubfoot appointment on Monday and her foot looks great! We are rejoicing that her foot has not had another relapse and she no longer has to wear her Ponseti brace-shoes.
We started school last week and our new curriculum--Tapestry of Grace--this week. We have been busy! The kids absolutely love this new curriculum and they especially like the time period we are studying: the Twentieth Century. Anna LOVES any history and Jonas right now is a little obsessed with Iwo Jima. I don't know why. One neat thing is that on the Jonathan Park cds, volume 4, the first disc is all about Iwo Jima! Jonas listened to it once on Monday and twice on Tuesday! If you don't have these cds, put out by Vision Forum, I highly recommend them. They are all on creation science and the Biblical and scientific evidence against evoultion set in adventure stories. We also have all these great Time Life and Reader's Digest books my mom gave us that are all on the Twentieth century--fashion, inventions, wars, presidents, politics, etc.
So . . . that is basically it!
