The Past Week or So

This week will complete our Thanksgiving lapbooking. We are, of course, studying being thankful and counting our blessings this week. As soon as the lapbooks are all finished, I will post some pictures.

Yesterday at church, our pastor did the neatest thing. He tied in Passover and communion with Thanksgiving. Well, Taliesin loved this, of course. You may remember how interested in Passover he is right now. So, of course, we now have to have a mini-Passover celebration for Thanksgiving this year. He is so looking forward to it.

On Saturday, poor Nathanael had to get a staple in the top of his head. He and Taliesin were in the backyard, digging in their favorite pile of dirt. Taliesin had a kid-sized hoe, breaking the dirt. He swung as Nathanael leaned. They collided, and Nathanael has a staple in the head to show for it. We are just so thankful it wasn't worse! He is doing really well with it. He has some pain where the staple and cut are, of course. Tylenol has been helping. Other than that, he's his normal, ornery self.

The Saturday before, I hurt my back. I leaned over to put Princess in the house and - wow - something happened. I'm not sure what. I made the mistake of sitting down. An hour and a half later, I was able to get up and go to the emergency room, where I was diagnosed with sciatica. I'm doing physical therapy, so I hope it helps. :^)

Kelsey and I are beginning the fifth week of new classes. It has been challenging keeping up with everything with injuries thrown into the mix. But it is still very worth it.

That has pretty much been our week - lapbooking and injuries. But we do have a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. We are definitely counting our blessings!

Kandy - I'm so sorry to hear you hurt your back and relieved your little one is okay! "Just keep swimming" and it'll work out okay :)
