Katie had gone to the beach to stay with my mom and attend a day camp for this past week. This isn't the first time Katie has gone to stay with mom for a week, but this time she was really missing her sisters. Not Daddy and I, her sisters. She was having a good time at the camp, but otherwise wasn't having a good time.
In my quest to try and become a 'responsive mom' I decided that maybe we should all pack up and go down for a visit. One of my dad's apartments just happened to be available so we had a place to stay. We left Tuesday and have had a GREAT time.
Of course I HAD to come home with a head cold. Always...
We did have to do school. I could not let another week slip by us. So, behold, the Traveling School:
In prep on Monday night I also downloaded two books from Librivox; The Iliad for Boys and Girls and Anne of Green Gables. I burned them to CDs before we left Tuesday morning. We chose to listen to Anne of Green Gables for the drive. It is so long we are still just a little of halfway through. I considered that school for the two driving days. We still end up a little behind, but nothing we can't make up once the Fall really gets going.
I'm glad to be back and am hoping that with a little rest this weekend I will get to feeling 100% soon.
