Algebra & Fevers

Well, mom is starting to feel better. I am still pretty wiped out, but with the baby down with the crud now, BooBear still down with it, and Rhea about to be down, I need to get going!

I was grading schoolwork today (from bed) and realized D-man needs help with his current Algebra chapter. It just isn't clicking yet. Well, up to this point in his math career, anytime he would get stuck, I could quickly see the problem and how to fix it. Today, I pulled my hair out had to really concentrate. I had to watch his math video, read my teacher notes again and even called my math genius friend. I did it all while letting a toddler with 103 fever lay on me. We finished the assignment though! Tomorrow we go at it again, I am sure. Did I mention, I am dreading the day I have to remember my Calculus?? Praise God that is four years away!


  1. You're brave to home school. I loved math, but there is no way in the world I could ever teach my son algebra!

  2. Oh, I will be praying for you all! We are just getting better from the same crud! I so understand where you are at right now.
    We are not to algebra yet, but it won't be long. I may need the name of your friend! :)

  3. I'm with ya on the math... Nika totally gets it at 3rd grade and I had to review polygrams and geometry on the pc! I'm also following along with The Crud! Let's all get well soon. Sara

    Ha ha ... my word verification thingy said "sneships." yes, big sneeze ships.

  4. I totally have nightmares about this!! Not looking forward to it...
