[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzMzNDk1Nzg0XzMzMjBFNDMy] Useful trees for frontier living: Elm Here's an excellent youtube video for tree identification purposes. Many times people have the knowledge, or some are great teachers, or some are good at camera work and editing, but rarely do they have all of those talents. It's why a team created a film usually. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBI8NnX3QYw[/youtube] This one talks about three wild edibles: the samaras of the elm (seed pods) contain a good source of protein, the basswood (lime tree) buds which are good, and the maple seeds you probably played with as a kid which are packed with nutrition. Another video which is solely about the slippery elm: [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkcIzvGxJ1U[/youtube] Elms, like pines, have a layer called the cambrium which has a lot of protein in it plus vitamins and minerals. In Norway, there was a famine, and they ended up eating this and saving a lot of lives. The First People ate it too. Of course, it doesn't taste great, but people noticed that that layer produced a slippery substance, something that is scientifically categorized as mucilagenous. That means it's perfect as a salve, and it's used today in herbal teas to coat a sore throat, and it's so very excellent when aching. It also was used for wounds by tribal people. Today it is useful for people with irritable bowel syndrome, a condition which is caused by stress and scrapes away a portion of the intestinal mucus, and this causes issues irritation in that region. If one knew how to harvest the bark and seeds, then you'd feed your family plus help them medicinally. In addition, the way that an elm forms it's wood, it is a whirl of growth, and so it was used to make wagon wheels, excellent bows when yews were not available, or any lumbar that resisted splitting. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elm_bark http://www.eattheweeds.com/chinese-elm-a-tree-that-doesnt-go-dutch-2/ [/quote]
There are many free homeschooling sites with pdf files. It would be great to have them just in case there are issues.
Get medications that your kids need. See if your doctor will prescribe 3 months supplies for them.
Get some presents tomorrow for Christmas. Little gifts that you could give out not only then, but throughout the year as incentives. They'll really appreciate them.
Children can thrive in the woods as long as they have calm parents. They cannot keep up with your pace up and down tails. You've got to plan adequately if you do have to walk some.
Kids are used to incorrectly using a backpack since kids at school wear them in the wrong fashion, which adds too much stress to their lower back. You'll have to reteach them how to buckle it properly and position it higher than they used to wearing it.
Try to make gathering wood into a game. Teach them as much about nature as possible. Being quiet is as important as talking.
Kids love open fires. Tell stories. It can simply be times when they did wonderful things when they were younger. They love hearing how much you love and adore them. Even teens.
Hug and kiss them often. Be generous with your affection. Lavish it on them
