September Reading Schedule and Aug Recap:)

We had a nice beginning to August, with temps in the mid-80s.  I wish we had been able to attend the State Fair, with temps being so nice, but we were recovering financially from our kid-filled summer!

Homeschooling:  I spent the first week of orientation watching videos, asking questions, and getting acquainted with the K12 program.  Week #2 went well, with the youngling 'reviewing' last year's material in Math.  Week #3 was a little bumpy, when I realized he was not doing all the reading, plus his new medication supplements arrived, and figuring out the correct dose/combination took a few days.  He's also not doing Study Island correctly, something we have the next three days to correct.

House Hunting:  Still looking.

Books Read:  4
            Print:  1
            E-book:  3

Yeah, rather dropped the ball on the reading this month....most of my free time was taken up with either Solitaire or DS9 on Netflix.  In my defense, I have really enjoyed rewatching this series!

In good news, I have a new adopted granddaughter, born Aug 30th, at 8:07 pm.  Miss Madison Renee weighed in at 6lbs, 4 oz, and is 21.5 inches long.

I got to hold her yesterday:)

Festivals/Signings:  I set up at both the Watermelon Festival and the Wine, Cheese, and Art Festival this past month and sold four copies of Love Weighs In:)  I've already heard back from one reader, so yay!

Mom's Health:  My mom had a horrible two weeks with back pain and being in the hospital.  Thankfully, she's been diagnosed with Spondalosis, or Osteoarthritis of the Spine, and is now on a Pain Management regime which seems to be working.  I was told she was going to have surgery this week, but instead, she's seeking a 2nd opinion before going under the knife.  I'll keep you updated!
