32- St. Patrick's Day
Today was day 2 of trying to "homeschool" my kid. We sat down together over the weekend and came up with a schedule to follow. He was pretty excited about having school at home, and he thought it was hilarious that Mommy would be his teacher. Yesterday was off to a pretty good start. That is, until we were just about done with our 20 minute Alphabet Walk and he insisted he was too tired to walk any further. Spoiler alert- he made it the last two blocks home!
When we got inside, however, he was still extra whiny and uncomfortable. It turned out he had a fever. (I promise we didn't touch anything except a stick (he loves sticks) on our walk, and we stayed far away from other people!) At that point, all bets were off, school-wise, and I honestly don't even remember what we did the rest of the afternoon. We all had an early bedtime, and this morning, his fever was gone!
Today, I was admittedly less enthusiastic about this whole scheduled teaching thing. Teachers work hard! We managed to get though it though, and I even got in a little jewelry time during his "rest" time. I made a little Celtic knot inspired pendant with a green stone. (Not totally sure what it is because it came in a de-stash bag of miscellaneous jewels. I would guess some kind of chalcedony.)
Whew. What a strange time this is.
