[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzM0NTUyNjIxX0VFQkJBQTkz] Gosh I know how to cut a tree with an axe, why bother.... [b]A lot of people think they understand axes because they [u]once[/u] cut a log with an axe[/b]. Most people don't do this anymore, not really on a daily basis. There are many techniques to cutting with an axe depending up the style of axe. Today, many people will use a hybrid axe because they want to minimize tools. Both of these things mean that much of the time they're using the wrong tool, or making do. They also are not availing themselves of many techniques because they understand one basic cut. If you really want to learn and not assume you already know how to do it, then watch: [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3W_bbo4hRk[/youtube] 37 videos that's he's made. Great teacher.

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
