Funny how things happen...

So we randomly decided this was a good year to surprise (yes SURPRISE, so shhhh no one tell her!) Little waffle(dd7) with Disney.  There was no reason to treat just her except we love her and feltwhile baby waffle (ds3) would enjoy it for a minute we would all enjoy it more with out it turns out to be one of those mysterious ways things because out of the blue suddenly in three day little waffle went from healthy and happy to lying on a hospital bed.  While she will be fine, I don't think things will ever be completely the same for her.  Unless something highly unexpected shows up in her labs it seems she has diabetes and will have to deal with it for the rest of her life. There has been no talk of meds and I honestly don't know enought to know why that isn't an option or why we have to jump right to insulin.  I guess I will know soon enough, I see lots of research in my future.  

I do have to say I have never been happier that we home school!

Summer is over!

Well here at Carolina Classical Academy our summer is coming to a close.  We will be starting classes on Monday.  I am trying very hard to finish up my prep work so I am ready to go but it isn't looking so great!  (we were going to start this week but....)

We will be starting:Right Start Math level C
                            All About Spelling level 3
                            Prima Latina
                            Writing With Ease level 2
                            First Language Lessons level 2 
                            Life of Fred- Butterflies, Cats and possibly Dogs
                            Story of the World-The Middle Ages 
                            Elemental Science
                    and   Handwriting without Tears 3rd grade (cursive) 

I am very excited to get started on this year.  We will basically go right through with no days off until Thanksgiving at which time we will wrap things up for the year pretty much and start back up after Christmas.  We will be surprising Little Waffle with a trip to Disney World (SHHHH no one tell her!) I can't wait! 

This weekend in the mean time we will be so busy.  Our semi-annual huge consignment sale is next week so I am busy busy busy pricking, hanging and tagging my items.  The Sunday we are going to a reptile exhibition show to buy Little Waffle a bearded dragon.  We have promised her a new pet since her leopard gecko from Santa died 3 months after Christmas.   

That is all for now, hopefully I will update by next Friday with how our first week goes!
