Although I tend to share only a “peep” into our homeschooling here at Practical Pages, and do not expose all the personal details of our lives, I really appreciate your cyber-friendship and your love, encouragement and support and want to share a little of our (my) current reality ~
Last week Wednesday evening I was quite badly burnt.
There was an accident in my kitchen where a large bottle of methylated spirits my hubby was using caught alight.
My attempts to cover the flames on the floor with a blanket somehow caused some flaming meth to shoot out onto my leg and I now have 2nd and 3rd degree burns from around my ankle to just under my knee.
I am sitting, dressed and working from my bed and homeschool has moved to my bedroom.
My youngest was really happy to snuggle under the blankets and do her schoolwork with me. My laptop is a wonderful tool, with all our hymns, audio books and pictures to view and discuss. It is actually really quite snug and cosy.
Nature study has been from my bedroom window.
But yesterday was really rough.
It was my first wound care treatment.
I was quite unprepared for the pain and the trauma involved in removing the dressings. Pain management is an ongoing problem. And I have realized that this is a slow process to recovery. Areas on my leg may require skin grafts. Please pray.
Today there is no school.
I am so grateful that we homeschool.
That we can take time off,
take things slow,
leave out the unnecessary,
and focus on the important.
Life is teaching me right now.
And I seem to be a slow learner.
I still need to find out what these life lessons are all about.
Blessings and thank you for reading,
