Why is it that when one of your kids is sick, all of a sudden you feel sick as well?  Sympathetic illness?

Brian is sick.  He has been in and out of the bathroom all morning long.  Poor guy.  I hate it when the kids are sick.  Of course, wouldn't you know, during his brief moments of feeling decent, he came downstairs and grabbed his math book to work on.  Yep, that's Brian.  Of all of his subjects, math is the one he likes to do the most.

Bryce and I had a good science lesson today while Bonnie worked on her math and language.  Once Bryce is done, Bonnie and I need to sit down with her science.  She has completed her reading, listened to all the lectures, and now has to complete the study guide.  Then we will work on studying for her science test.

Group work today is working on a paper about Justinian I, emporer of the Byzantine Empire and the one who had all the Roman laws written down in a usable form.  Many of the laws that our judicial system uses today came from Justinian's Code of Laws.

Once school is done it will be time to head over to the garden.  My tomatoes are starting to come in.  Yesterday I can 3 quarts of tomatoes and 2 quarts of salsa.  Hopefully our nice weather will hold out for all of my tomatoes to ripen.  I have 29 plants and need lots more tomatoes.  Once my tomatoes are dealt with then we need to start working on apple pies.  My dear mother in law dropped off  two boxes of apples yesterday so I should get a few pies out of them.

Busy day.  I really hope I am just feeling sympathetic stomach turnings and not really sick.


  1. Aww, I hope Brian starts to feel better, poor guy. Stomach illness is the worst.

  2. He was sick from 8 in the morning til about 4 in the afternoon. He couldn't keep anything down. By 5 he was starting to feel better and managed to eat a little at dinner. By 7 he was wrestling with Bryce. Obviously it was a 24 hour bug. Now I got watch the other kids to see who is next.
