I am tired...I've noticed I'm tiring more easily. I'm just not sure if I've noticed because I am more tired, or if I know that I should be because I'm anemic. Whatever it is, I hope that I rebound quickly from this Hemoglobin of 10 (should be 12) and Ferretin (iron) level of 8 (should be 40) with the IV iron treatments next week. It's only 8 o'clock and I really want to go to bed.
Took the kids (with a friend and her two girls) to The Mall in Raleigh specifically to the Build-A-Bear. The girls all had gift cards. Nate didn't want a new animal, just a set of "basketball clothes" for his bear. We had to dress Fuzzy in his new clothes as soon as we got home.
We also had lunch and toured the new Lego's store in the Mall before leaving. Lots and lots and lots of Lego's...amazing! There was a set (age=16) for a complete carousel, I can't even imagine how long that would take to build.
I quickly popped into the homeschool gathering place to pick up our next Math-U-See DVD/Teacher's manual, Gamma....multiplication, used and 1/2 price! A whole set of third grade A beka readers were in the free bin, so I had to pick those up...they make great reading material. I also got "Get set for the Code", the beginning book for Nate for the Explode the Code phonics series.
With Joe attending seminary, we do not know if we will change how we school the kids...but I'm keeping in mind that I may need to work some and that would mean a change. Homeschooling may not be the plan for next year...we'll see what God has up His sleeve ; ) It's hard to believe, no matter what, that Third grade is just around the corner for my girl!
