Happy Friday! Whew! I'm glad to see Friday this week. We've had some craziness going on here and I'm glad it's better. See, we started this past week off on Saturday in the ER. Boo Bear got up needing a breathing treatment, which is something that happens from time to time. He seemed fine and even played outside with daddy some. By 4:00 he had a fever, couldn't breathe and I couldn't give him another treatment yet as it wasn't long enough between them.
We ended up in the ER and they got everything sorted out and placed him on a liquid steroid. He scared me this time. I'm so thankful that he was opened up and the ER staff was wonderful with him.
Although he probably doesn't like it, school still went on this week once we got him situated. :)
That's the downside to homeschool, right? (if there is a downside...)
Our math is moving along and we are working on division this week. He has had some difficulty memorizing multiplication facts so it's a little slow going. He doesn't think in memorizing. He thinks in how it's put together so he's reversing it. It's really neat to see how his brain works and figures things out. Sometimes I go, how'd you do that???
We started reading Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing this week. I'm working on a review for Super Teacher Worksheets and I'm using their 4th grade Book Bingo worksheet. That's on the list and we are really excited to read some of the others. This actually helps me to make sure we are reading a variety of books this year.
In science we finished up the chapter on muscles and we're moving along to the digestive system. Should be fun with a boy, right?
We had some friends over this week as well. Does anybody else have that thing where your kiddo asks to have friends over when you're out and about with said friend but you know your house is not ready for company? ? Yeah that happens a lot here. Or at least I don't feel it's ready. I have to remind myself my home is lived in. Not dirty but lived in. We live here and it's not a museum.. Please tell me I'm not alone in this!
Needless to say I'm trying to get him to understand that when he helps keep it ready at all times, my answer can be yes instead of not today.. :) Anyway... That led to two of his friends being able to come over this week.
I cooked up a couple new recipes this week. Some I just threw together and others I was inspired off of Pinterest to create. One of the best ones, I believe was my low carb Philly Cheese-steak in a bowl. It was a big hit here and there were no leftovers. ;-) I love Philly's but the bread is not my friend. Enter in this creation:
So how was your week? Do you have any multiplication tips for me? I'd love to hear them! Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to swing by the Weekly Wrapup with Kris!
