Homeschooling - 10 Weeks Left

   So, it's been quite a while since I posted anything about ZoKo's schooling on here. Or any other posts, for that matter. Anyway, last week was cut short because she had a scooter accident on Wednesday and fractured her ankle. The first trip to the ER lasted til 3am and ended with a splint and crutches. And the second ER trip was less than 24 hours later, because the first splint was put on holding her foot at a bad angle. After three hours of screaming, she finally passed out within a minute of them removing the first splint and straightening her foot out. She stayed asleep through them measuring her leg, wrapping her ankle, and placing the new splint on it. Then she also slept the whole car ride home... All in all, it was a hectic few days. Right now I'm waiting on a call back from a specialist that was supposed to call me on Thursday to schedule an appointment for her ankle and further x-rays, and to determine if the splint is sufficient for the healing process.
   I'm not going to be listed the percentage completed in each of her books at the moment, but I will update which titles she is currently working on, and which ones have been completed so far.
