By Wednesday, Felicity had finished all her school work for the semester and Cecilia was down to a couple of math lessons, but, unfortunately, she tested positive for strep too after a morning of vomiting. By Friday Elizabeth had it and by Saturday I tested positive for strep and had an ear infection. We did manage to still get quite a bit of school work done, including finishing The White Stag and our last Chemistry lesson, though we did not get to any experiments this week. Felicity finished all her school work for the week and Teresa finished all her math. Elizabeth got done everything but her math.
I worked out a plan to help all the girls finish their remaining school work for the semester by the following Tuesday during our Catch Up week, because it is very helpful having a catch up week to be caught up before a wonderful 3 week Christmas break and especially beneficial after having 4 illnesses in less than 2 months!
We also had our first big snowfall of the season and Thomas got to go out and play in the snow for his first time!
I spend part of the last few days going over, planning and tweaking the remainder of our school year and printing up assignment sheets for each of the older 3 girls. I've also ordered our History books for January, so I think we are all just about ready to let go of the books and the lessons and grow quieter as we prepare for Christmas.
