Daily Musing

So we got hit with the flu bug in the house. The baby started yesterday and seems to be on the mend now. I am hoping and praying that everyone else has had a strain of this particular virus and no one else will come down with it. That is one thing about a big family if everyone develops a particular sickness it is a good 6 weeks before it is cleared from the house. So far this winter we haven't had anything though so I can't complain!

On the school front...now that March Break is over the girls and I started a study on Canada. We had actually taken a long break from Unit Studies because my 'job' was to busy so everyone was doing just the basis 3 R's. They are really enjoying this study so far, okay I know it is only the second day but we are planning a "vacation" across Canada in order to learn this time. So it is very engaging for them, who doesn't like to plan a trip? The enthusiasm this morning when we decided to fly to PEI and start the trip there was so exciting for me to watch when I seen that both my girls were totally focused and into their work. I hope this continues!


  1. I hear you on the sickness thing. It just seems to go round and round sometimes. We are dealing with this right now in fact.

  2. The flu passed through here a month ago. Oy!

  3. We got hit too with a virus, yuck. Just the little one so far and I hope I've contained it. Hope everybody is feeling back to normal soon!

    Your "vacation" sounds like fun! Let me know if I can help with the Newfoundland visit..I'm from a little Island off the NE coast!

    Thanks for following my blog!
