Poor Nora stayed home sick from school; low fever, stuffy head and a sore throat. She slept while I cleaned. We read books together. She slept while I cooked. We rubber essential oils on her feet and back. I'm sure she'll be on the mend soon, but it was nice to have her around for the day. It was a pajama kind of day.
Scott spray painted the doors, ceiling and baseboards/trim. We did forget about a couple of closet doors that I painted with a brush later...it just doesn't look as good with a brush.
I painted the gym, then we put the gym floor down during FHE,
I spent the weekday mornings (mostly) painting the rest of the walls,
and I picked out and ordered the carpet.
We made a pumpkin roll one Sunday afternoon...we often make baked goods on Sunday, it's a fun family activity.
And we had another student of the month! Elisabeth was recognized by her health teacher. So proud of all the kids!
Date night with Nora at Kneaders!
Elisabeth had a busy Saturday, she ran a 5k (fundraiser/eagle scout project) in the morning with Charles and Scott, then she came home feeling sick and feverish, and while she rested on the couch I jolted her out of her peace after I got a text from her piano teacher reminding us she had a piano compeition in ten minutes! We made it, a little late, but she did it and she made it to the finalists recital for that evening! We came home, she got back into her comfy clothes to rest for a bit until the recital.
She ended up winning 2nd place for her division.
