Homeschooling Journal Week 17

In my life this week…

First the good news. The ‘Unofficial’ results of Philip’s scans are clear. I go by a couple of things. First I peek over the shoulders of those doing the scans. I am not an expert but I have seen a number of them and have a pretty good idea what to look for. Second I watch the people doing the scans. If they are smiling and happy its a good sign. Third if they don’t order additional scans we know that the radiologist didn’t see anything. We don’t get the final report for a week or two. The radiologist has to go over it with a fine tooth comb.

We had a packed couple of days in Vancouver. The tests are in the middle of the day but we try to fit other things around them. We visited with family, did some shopping and even fit in some homeschooling.

One of the best parts of these trips is getting to treat ourselves to dinners out. So pizza was on the menu but this time we tried a new place for BBQ and it was good. We got two dinners and a lunch out of a platter and still had leftovers. Philip’s comment was that we had to do that place on the first day so we would have time to eat all of it.

In our homeschool this week…

The big thing for this week was while we were in Vancouver was to visit a Buddhist Temple and the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Clasical Chinese Garden. Both were very beautiful and peaceful places. He took lots of pictures and bought a book on the garden with his own money. We did take the tour of the garden that gave us more of the meaning and symbolism present. Having done some reading online the week before, Philip knew some of it already. Next week he will be preparing a report on it for his Chinese language course. Next week we have to get back in to the swing of thing but I have the weekend to plan so…

My favorite thing this week was…

Other than the clean scans it would be the garden. It was truly a sanctuary in the heart of a bustling metropolis.

My kiddos favorite thing this week was…

I think he would answer the same with the BBQ joint coming in third.

I’m cooking…

Other than walking my wife through one of the dishes I make I didn’t do any cooking this week. She called and asked me for a recipe that only exists in my head.

I’m grateful for…

Clean Scans!

A photo, video, link, or quote to share (silly, serious or both!)…

You know you are a SAHD when you discover there are unwritten rules on feeding baby. Just because rice crispy squares have no chocolate or nuts do not make them ok

When I first became a SAHD my littlest was only 6 months old. We had been introducing food in a controlled way although with the older two ‘helping’ there had been some alterations. So I asked what were the current rules and she told me no chocolate and no nuts. Thus I made rice krispie squares and fed them to Ian and posted the picture to Facebook. I was in trouble before she even got home.

  1. Praise God for clear scans! I linked over from iHomeschool’s journal link up. That sweet rice krispy treat covered baby picture is precious. That is one of my husband’s specialties, too. It did fit the no chocolate, no nuts rule.

  2. What a beautiful little guy. I’m so happy for the clear scans.

    It’s nice to meet you — thanks for linking with Collage Friday
