Quick Note

Dan is in the rehab center. He will be there anywhere from 1 to 2 weeks. He will be receiving physical therapy, aqua therapy and mental help.

We fought to have my granddaughter placed n school with Rebecca and we didn't win. The only way was for Emma to give up guardianship to me and we cannot do that. So, that Marissa doesn't fall behind and knows as much as the kids in her first grade class come September, I am homeschooling her. Just 2 hours each morning and she will be ok. Rebecca's teacher is going to help me with lesson plans and work sheets. And has given me sites to register at and download material to use also.

Ok I said this was quick. I have to get Rebecca dressed, and myself. Fix Jim's lunch and get my things together for Marissa today. Then be at the school at 12noon to help with Rebecca's class.

Snow, ice and rain coming my way later this afternoon. Is it spring yet.

Love you all..................


  1. Continued prayers for all of you

  2. I am not sure if you have ever said why, but what is going on at Marissa's school? Or is she just missing so much due to everything going on? I thought they were happy with her school?
    I'm glad Dan is getting the rehab he needs :)
    Hugs and Love

  3. Thats good about dan.....and Most homeschool kids I've met are a whole lot more mature and smarter too than the Pubic school kids. she is blessed to have you in her life.


  4. So glad Dan is in the rehab where he will get all the treatment(s) he needs ... Emma will get a little more rest .... I'm sure that while it will be extra for you to homeschool -- you are going to enjoy the process and get to spend some additional one on one time with Marissa.  

    Continued prayers and good wishes for all of you.  :)

  5. glad Dan is in rehab... they will give him the help he needs.  Sending good thoughts and prayers

  8. It is great news to hear that Dan's in the rehab center at last.  You have your hands full with everything you do.  I do not know how you find enough hours in the day.  God Bless you and give you strength to keep going.

    Love to you all,


  9. you have your hands full there but it is great news how everything is being taken care of, one way or another. and it is ridiculous that they couldn't make an exception based on marissa's unique circumstances. but it is great that you are able to make up the difference..
    take care

  10. Glad to hear that Dan is getting the help he needs.  It must be a relief for Emma.  You are going to be a busy lady how lucky for Marissa to have a grandma that would help her like you do.  

  11. I pray that things will get a lot better for Dan. Good luck on the home schooling. Helen

  12. Sounds like things are working out.   Now a days I think I would home school my children


  13. My Dear Cindy, I am so glad taht Dan is noow receiving the help he so needs. It will be a relief to Emma as well. It is wonderful that you can help so much as you do. I am sure Marissa will do just fine eith the help of her Mommom..Love Sybil xx

  14. Glad Dan is getting the help he needs. Sorry you couldn't get Marissa where she needs to be, but at least you're working with her and the teacher is help I'm sure. Our schools are closed today. We got about 4-5 inches of snow, but it's melting now. It's been sleeting early this morning and freezing over the snow. The trees are really pretty they look like crystal.
    Take care, Chrissie

  15. Glad to hear Dan is getting the help he needs!
    We are getting snow today too, they just announced on TV that school is letting out early!

    Keep Warm!

    ~~~Make it a Great Day~~~

    God Bless, you are the best Mom n Grandma ever.

  17. Cindy, glad Dan is in rehab, his card is heading your way, Love You Lisa XO

  18. Much love & many prayers for family & you.

  19. Sending prayers all goes well for Dan.  Understandable why Emma can't give up guardianship...but you are making it all work out...that's good.  Have a lovely week.  We are getting the same weather here too.
    Hugs and love,

  20. I'm sorry you didn't win your fight for Marissa. But, it will be very good to home school her. She'll learn a lot that way.
    Are you pulling her out of school to home school her? Or doing it in addition to schooling?
    I'm glad Dan is getting the help he needs. Good for him!
    Love and prayers to you all..

  30. Good news that Dan is now in the rehab center! (hugs) Indigo

  31. As a homeschooler of a 1st grader I'll give you this advice...read, read, read. Most important thing for her at this age. Make sure SHE's reading, read TO her as well. Math I don't know where she was at school. Work with her on reading time, counting money, making sure she has basic concepts down. Jacob's math is very advanced for his age.

    Make sure she's getting in some art projects, music, etc. I have tons of links if you'd like them, just let me know. Even free stuff to at the very least low cost.

  32. I'm so happy that Dan is in a rehab center. I'm sure you will do a great job home schooling.

  33. Glad Dan is at the rehab. It will help tremendously. Sorry you  couldn't get your granddaughter into Rebecca's school. You will be great homeschooling.
    take good care. Barb  

  34. I am sorry you lost that battle, but you may find that homeschooling is a better option for learning anyway. I have discovered when going at the childs pace they absorb more and retain more of the information you are teaching them.

  35. After going back a ways I am so glad to hear that he is in the rehab now and getting all the care he needs to get well.
