The stomach bug hit Olivia in the WEEEEE hours of Monday morning (at 2:30am to be exact).  I was up from then until I left for work at 8:15 with her.  Major spewage from both ends simultaneously.  So no school when I got home!   She was well enough to sit in the van with me for the 30 minutest that Lindsey had ballet in the evening; although she was laying down with a puke bucket by her just in case. 

Tuesday the bug had passed (and bypassed everyone else, thank God!) So it was back to the grindstone for us.   The A Beka writing program for 1st grade had us doing a lot of Abraham Lincoln work this week.  So I figured we'd take the opportunity to delve a little deeper into his life so I added a few books to read.

Abe Lincoln Remembers; by Ann Turner
Abe Lincoln Gets His Chance; by Frances Cavanah

There are several pluses to this, one being that Olivia is really interested in Mr. Lincoln.  The other plus is that I didn't have time to get to the library this week to get any books, so thankfully I had a couple in our own bookshelves that worked for us!

Awana is going well.  Olivia will finish up her 2nd year book next week.  I guess we'll work on review work until the end of May.   Lindsey is plugging along in her book as well.  The Cubbies all do the same verse each week, so she's steady on the course.

Math took a sudden bad turn for Olivia this week.  Her weekly math test was the lowest score EVER for her.  It was still an 85, but for her that is really bad!  Quite honestly, I think a lot of it is due to the vast amount of math review products over the last little bit.(6 in the last 2 months alone) with several more due in the next month.  This weekend I'll try to get a game plan for getting her back on track.  There are just too many distractions with so many products!

Today we had Co-op.  We've been cancelled for snow, ice and flooding the last several weeks. (We are getting more snow tomorrow.)   Then home for a 40 minute rest break and off to ballet and then to a board meeting at our church.  

10:43 pm, home from the board meeting.  Girls are in bed, and I just finished up my wrap up.  Now I'm going to bed! 

Check out everyone else's week at the Weekly Wrap Up.
