J is for juggling

...we WILL homeschool this week.  Amidst all the doc appointments we MUST go to.  We WILL homeschool :)

I am back to planning our schooling AROUND our interuptions.  I did this years ago when we had a very sick child.  Right now we don't have anyone quite in that situation (Thank God!), but our 6 year old, infant, and 17 year old are all seeing specialists right now.  I don't know how people do it with chronic issues.  They are my heroes.  They are the ones I look to at times like this to remind myself that this could be much harder than it is.  And I am thankful for what we have.

A prayer request for our 6 year old.  I took her to the optomitrist after suspecting a slight vision problem (book pulling closer while reading and getting very frustrated by the moving objects games on Reading Eggs online).  Turns out one of her eyes is so bad they can only get it corrected TO 80/20.  Basically, with the best glasses they have she can see that giant E.  (The other eye is, thank God, perfect).

People with chronic issues... it just becomes a new normal. Little Duncan didn't know what it was like to run in freshly cut grass until he was about 8. He never missed it becuae he never did it before.
Anyway, theh Little 6yr old is so adorable she can rock whatever they do for her eye.
