UPDATE FROM THE GEORGIA FARM!


Tuesday, May 07, 2013

AS MOST ALL MY FRIENDS KNOW I STARTED HOME SCHOOLING PHILLIP LAST NOVEMBER AND THIS WAS ONE OF THE BEST MOVES I HAVE EVER MADE. I CHOSE ALPHA OMEGA SWITCHED ON SCHOOL HOUSE AND NOT ONLY DID I LOVE IT SO DID PHILLIP AND HE TOTALLY EXCELLED IN ALL HIS COURSES CLOSING HIS TERM OUT WITH A 96 IN SCIENCE,97 IN HISTORY AND GEOGRAPHY,97 IN BIBLE,98 IN LANGUAGE ARTS AND 98 IN MATHEMATICS FOR THE YEAR!

HE IS ALSO GOING UP THE 2ND OF JUNE FOR HIS BLUE BELT IN KARATE. AND WE GO TO THE SADDLE-UP RANCH ONCE A WEEK FOR HIM TO RIDE HORSES. HE REALLY ENJOYS GETTING TO EXPERIENCE THE INTERACTION WITH THE HORSES.

THIS WAS PHILLIP BREAKING HIS BOARD FOR HIS BELT PROMOTION!

THIS WAS PHILLIP ACCEPTING HIS BLUE/WHITE BELT FROM MASTER CREWS!

MY HANDSOME BABY!

MY COWBOY ON HIS HORSE "MAGIC"

NOW AS FOR ME WELL I AM HANGING IN THERE. I THREW MY BACK OUT LAST MONTH,THOUGHT I HAD EVERYTHING UNDER CONTROL,BUT GUESS THE LORD HAD OTHER PLANS FOR ME. STEPPED IN A SMALL PILE OF MUD FRIDAY EVENING AND IT WAS SLICKER THAN "SNOT" SENT MY LEFT FOOT SPINNING IN WAYS I NEVER KNEW IT COULD GO,HEARD SOMETHING POP, THOUGHT IT WAS MY LEG BUT GUESS IT WAS MY LEG.

SO HERE I SIT WITH A MOBILIZER ON MY LEG,WHEEL CHAIR BOND,DUE TO A SPRAINED LIGAMENT, WAITING FOR THE SWELLING TO GO DOWN ,HAVE AN APPOINTMENT THURSDAY AT THE ORTHOPEDIC SPECIALIST, TO SEE REALLY HOW GOOD I HAVE BEEN THIS WEEK! JUST THANKFUL TO GOD I DIDN'T BREAK IT.

OUTSIDE THAT EVERYTHING ELSE IS NORMAL. CHARLES IS STILL ON THE ROAD, THE GARDEN IS STILL GROWING AND SO ARE THE WEEDS! MY FLOWERS ARE SO BEAUTIFUL THIS YEAR.

GRANDDADDY IS STILL GOING STRONG. HE IS ABLE TO FUSS AT ALL OF US AND BABY PHILLIP,LOL! HE TRIES TO KEEP HIS GRASS MOWED AND RIDES HIS MOWER DOWN ALMOST EVERY DAY TO CHECK ON ME NOW! I THINK THAT IS THE SWEETEST THING!

HOPE ALL IS WELL AND HAPPY WITH EVERYONE. SORRY IT HAS TAKEN ME SO LONG TO GIVE AN UPDATE. I SURE HAVE A LOT OF CATCHING UP TO DO! I HAVE SURE MISSED EVERYONE!

THANK GOD I'M A FARM GIRL!

    Dear Barbara,
What is the update on your leg and back? Hope you are feeling so much better!

So delighted to hear Phillip is doing so well with school. Hope he is still loving it. Amazing how homeschooling is less an effort that it is thought to be. Not that it isn't hard and time consuming but it isn't as challenging as traditional school and the personal attention to your child/children is so much better for them. ;-)

Hugs and hope you can update us on how you are all doing! You are missed and cared about!

    Hello Dear Barb!!
How you have been missed! But know life has been difficult and busy!! So glad for the family news!! Especially that you are homeschooling Phillip! I know it sounds crazy that it takes the same or less time than doing homework, but it can be the truth. I loved homeschooling my 4 and they are so thankful we did too!
Hugs and hope you heal quickly!! Hope to private message and have a good chat but know you are so very busy!
Hugs, hugs and many, many blessings!!

    So good to hear all the news from the farm dear
friend! I am thrilled to hear about Phillip's excelling
in all his studies. Also, glad that he is doing so
well in Karate. I am sure that he will love being
with horses. I can understand how thrilled you
are for your special Baby.

So sorry to hear about your ankle. I hope that
you heal fast. I'm sure that you and Phillip
have lots of exciting things to do. It took me
a long time to heal after a mishap like yours.
Hope this is not the same for you. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Everyone keeps telling me I may need therapy, I sure hope not. Guess I will just have to see how the knee heals. Meanwhile I will just rest and do as I am told for once! LOL!

    You are doing a good job of home schooling. Hope your leg gets better soon. You may have to have therapy. I am still having therapy at home and had a month of rehab after TKR
