Alex's Modified Study Schedule During Light Illness



Alex, and I, reviewing Cell Components 
(from my wife's Japanese Blog).


Our whole family has been hit by a light flu.

We have not exercised at all for over a week now.

Alex has been falling asleep early and he has been taking naps during the day.

We all have had headaches, lethargy, and limited appetites.

These are the reasons Alex, and I, are going over subject matter on the sofa...
instead during his stretching session after each workout.

We have just been having him do his homework...and some project work...
however, we cut way back on his advanced supplementary work until he gets well.
I have had to cut way back on the daily study sessions during the weekend also
(less than 50% of normal).

Luckily...Alex hasn't been hit too hard with the illness.

He has so much going on at school everyday...
just a few days missed...
and it could take us all week to catch up.



This is part of Alex's advanced study session in Math (when he was feeling better)...
and no...
I cannot tell you what this is.

The only way I even know this picture is right side up 
is by the margin at the top of the paper  :)

Alex was going to write up his Science Research and Bibliography paper yesterday...
however, he was falling asleep at the computer as we were finishing up his
sheet on his experiment's variables and controls.

If he is up to it...
he will finish it today.

If not...
we can afford to wait until next weekend as he is ahead of schedule as of now.

This is one of the reasons that I get Alex to work ahead.

Besides establishing good work and study habits...
and being able to enjoy himself fully...
it is to take into account uncontrollable events...
such as illness.

  1. Sorry you all have not been feeling well. I know how miserable that is. Alex is a real trooper for continuing with his studies under the conditions. You did well to work ahead.

  2. Alex has been really tired. I had felt so sorry for him when his little head was nodding at the computer. He just had a few lines left, so I had him finish up for the night. Even today we will take it easy. I am just having him do some light research and documentation for his report and we will wait for next weekend to continue it. They will actually be covering how to do it this week in school. I was teaching Alex how to do it to get him ahead...but for this week...he can just take it easy.
