[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzM0Mjg0NzExXzRBQTM4QjI=] Photos and items of sentimental value When an event occurs, you might lose everything save that which is in your bug out bag. It would be great wisdom to find favorite photos and place them in several sealed waterproof bags. Of course you can't take them all, nor should you, but having several precious photos of family events or of cherished memories of friends, those might sustain you when all else is dark. Imagine how hurricane survivors feel when they lose not only their possessions, but also their photos and items of sentimental value. Possessions can eventually be replaced. These items cannot. As we age, we often lose the ability to fully recollect our memories. Seeing a photo or an item of this sort, and it jogs the memory. Some elderly folks may be in shock at the loss of such things, and worse, it can cause a kind of delirium. These items add a level of stability to their existence. They do for all ages, and creates a harmony and balance. Imagine how important certain things are to children. They might entirely forget the faces of people who have “passed” if these photos are lost. I know, it's a weight to carry, but better that than the huge emptiness that results from their loss. I recently culled from my favorite photos, and have a special handful of my very favorite ones. They're carefully protected. I hope you do the same should you be forced to leave your homes. [/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
