Home Sweet Home ~ Learners who teach themselves

It has been a while since I have posted. I hope everyones holidays was filled with special memories and lots of fun.
We had a wonderful Christmas, busy but it was very nice~ after the holidays we went back to our studies for about a week and I started to not feel very well.
Early last week I had to be rushed to the Emergency Room and underwent emergency abdominal surgery.
I just came home yesterday evening and am SO glad to be home in the comforts of our own home can make us heal much faster.
I will not be up and around much or out and about for the next 4-6 weeks so there will be lots of time to catch up on things I have missed with the boys.

While I was in the hospital the boys had taken over the chores and their daily studies, carefully following their weekly checklists and it went very well. We were very proud of them. Often they would help eachother and oldest brother (home from college for winter break) took it upon himself to give some LA classes as well :)

Here in New Hampshire we also had some very important Legislation that was upcoming and I was very frustrated I could not attend to~ Below is a very inspiring You Tube clip that had been posted on our local homeschooling group~ I really enjoyed watching it and hearing the supporters. I thought I would share it.

Over the next few weeks while recuperating I am hoping (if I feel well enough) to post/share about our daily lessons and things we are going to be doing. I am hopeful this will inspire others who may have chronic illness or find themselves in situation you may not be able be continually with your learners for particular reasons)

I want to thank everyone who has written me for your thoughts and your prayers - they have really helped me get through a very tough time and I will be forever grateful for your support.

Adella, thank you so much for your prayers and thoughts. I am feeling a bit stronger by the day and that is really helping the boys feel much more comfortable with me being home :)
I am also thankful that you find the posts helpful to you and your efforts in teaching~ I hope to be able to add a bit more as time moves on throughout the winter :)
