Veteran's Day Unit

Well, darn. I planned a really great day of studying and celebrating Veteran's Day, and then Brynne woke up with a sore throat, fever, headache, and then vomited. We won't be using our lesson plans, but maybe you can. I'll be saving these plans for next year.

  1. oh no hope its not what Kyndal has mono (if that is what she has) is contagious so it strep. Strep is running around like crazy up here. Fingers crossed Syd doesn't get it last time she had it she had it for 4 months.

    Sending get well wishes and speedy recovery to your too sick girls :(

    ps: I'll work on the rediscovering Christmas intro post tonight and email it to you :)

  2. Nicole, Thanks so much for your kind, encouraging thoughts today. I was very apprehensive about posting it but glad that I did. It isn't a secret and most of my local friends and family know the score. Have a great day.


We all know that in this crazy world of homeschooling, we need all the (adult) support we can get. Please leave a comment if you so wish!
