Random Five on Friday (July 12th): Road to Recovery

Okay so my random five post is a little late. We were out-of-town this weekend. We got in late Sunday night. We are recovering from a busy weekend.

In Our Homeschool This Week . . .
1.) Alyssa is working through her summer curriculum. She completed four full A+ Interactive Math lessons and online worksheets the other day. She also took the chapter quiz on money. She did really well. I am glad that I purchased the second grade curriculum several months ago through Educents. The price was extremely low after I used my free $15 for signing up at launch time. You can read my review for A+ Interactive Math First Grade here if you are interested in the company. We are also reviewing the Strega Nona Project Pack Curriculum from In the Hands of a Child. I love Tomie dePoala books!

In Our Life This Week . . . 
2.) Jeff is slowly recovering from his surgery. He takes his medication and rests when needed. I have obviously been doing his chores along with a few other extra things. He'll need 4-6 weeks recovery time. Please pray for a speedy recovery, less pain, and clean healing. I am grateful that my husband's surgery went well and that he had a wonderful doctor.

Places We Went and People We Saw . . .
3.) We went to my niece's 5th birthday party this weekend. Alyssa always has so much fun with Haydn. She's sweet and gentle. My daughter had loads of fun and stayed cool while playing on the water slide. We visited the Texas State Aquarium the next day.

Silly Faces
Guess Who Lost Tooth #4?
I recently found out that all four of her back teeth came in. 
What I'm Baking
4.) I made oatmeal apple pecan pancakes for my family this week. Alyssa helped grate the apples and measure ingredients. They both LOVED these pancakes! Personally . . . I thought they were too thin and moist, but my hubby said not to change anything.

I Have My Eyes On or Have Been Oogling . . .
5.) Discovery Education Streaming Plus has been on my wish list for years. But, we can't afford a subscription right now. Click here to read how you can get a summer subscription for FREE. It is only available for a limited time so head over to read it now if interested. We are lovin' it!

I will link this post up at Random 5 on Friday hosted by Miranda at The Pebble Pond. Please join the fun and link up your random five thoughts, facts, or occurrences. I will also link this post at Weekly Wrap-Up at Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers and The Homeschool Mother's Journal at So You Call Yourself a Homeschooler?
