It seems like this spring we have had more than our share of colds! Just as we are getting over one, the next week a new one comes to visit. Thursday night my two were complaining that their throats hurt. Friday morning I woke up with a temperature! Unfortunately Friday was also the day we were supposed to have our homeschool spring party so needless to say we did not attend.
Saturday we woke up and everyone felt fine so in the morning Z had a soccer game. (not sure why all my soccer photos turned out so blurry)
We were supposed to go to a Kite Day event after that but by then we were all worn out!
This morning we all woke up sick again. (well except for hubby) So maybe we over did it yesterday. I'm curious how other homeschool families handle sick days. Obviously if a child has a fever,flu,or stomach flu all schoolwork would be cancelled. For us though when we just have a cold, we normally stay home (or at least away from other people so we do not share our cooties) but the kids are easily bored if we do not do something!
Today is Sunday so we are obviously not doing schoolwork but hopefully soon we will be taking a walk to get some fresh air. On weekdays if one of the kids are sick we may do our online computer curriculum or play some alphabetizing games. Also we sometimes will just sit down with a good book, either alone, or together. (Z is reading A "Bear Stories" :)
I'm hoping the sickies will move along though and soon. Tuesday we are supposed to go see a play of To Kill a Mockingbird!
How does your homeschool family deal with sick days?
