I have three boys...ages8; 5 and almost 20 months......scares me to think of anything happening. [/quote] Dear Amy, I appreciate the thanks. Don't be afraid, but learn and apply the skills if you are grateful. When I was young and newly licensed to drive, and so I explored every country road I could find to find some privacy and also test my freedom a little. I was was driving along on backwoods roads, and slowly the roads changed from asphalt to macadam and then to gravel. I wasn't nervous at all, since I felt invulnerable. I even found some great little hidden places just off the road and near a river, secret little beaches to enjoy. But once I had a flat tire in the middle of nowhere, and of course hadn't changed a tire before, but knew how. Any way, moments later, a pickup truck pulled up, and a farmer got out, and we had a great talk while he talked me through it. Even though I knew how, just him hanging around helped. As he left he said, "You know, country people always stop and help each other out, because even if you know how to fix something, something else might happen, and I reckon company is almost always welcome. Pass it on." Well, it was a little thing, but a huge moment too. So, I always do, and always will. I hope you do too. Pass it on. You have your own abilities and knowledge. You learned them from friends and ancestors, and learned some on your own. Keep the old ways alive, and add to the knowledge pool. Pass them on. You're a mom, and the little and big things you do for your sons, they'll ripple through time, for eons really. That's your legacy. Pass it on. [/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
