-we are back in the saddle. Or at least sitting sidesaddle. After starting to run a fever Wednesday, I decided it would be a sick day Thursday. It ws a good thing too. I ended up going to the Dr and testing positive for strep.  Needless to say, there has been no school here since last Wednesday. I don't think I've had strep as an adult and I don't wish it on anyone! But I am on the mend now so we are rolling in the notebooks today.
I found a new bible study for kids so we have added it to our week. I'm not sure how often it will be but I am excited about it. We started timelining Esther today and will continue in our next lesson. Here is Little Bit working on that (do not judge me by my timeline drawings. They are actually supposed to be stick figures but mine needed clothes).
Little Monster has had a rough week. He has been sick for over a week now but I just started him on antibiotics 2 day ago. On Friday he pushed himself backwards in our pub height dining room chairs. He had a huge knot on the back of his head and somehow ended up with a really really bad bruise underneath his chin. Maybe he hit the spot where the collar bones join? And the next day I found where he chipped one of his front teeth. Now he is saying that his back tooth hurts so we are praying it doesn't fall out. Then yesterday we went to a local grocery store that doesn't have good weight to their grocery carts.  He was sitting in the top, Little Bit stood up on the bar right in front of him, and down went the cart. He hit his knees on that trip. And last but not least he broke out in some of the biggest hives I have ever seen last night. I think it is from detergent so we will change that and see how it goes.

Art involved looking at a photograph so we can see details that are missed if the subject is moving. Little Bit chose to do these birds eating. It is a pretty loose translation but you get the gist. The watercolors cause the artist to lose a good bit of detail in what they've drawn. You get more blobs of color than details.
