[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzM0NjY4NTc3X0Q2NjBBREEw] Since we're talking cabbages...I hate cabbage worms You've probably seen these pretty “butterflies since you were a kid.... http://nwkidsmagazine.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/cabbage-moth-21.jpg Guess what it's a moth! You never probably knew that before, but chased them happily thinking otherwise. Well that seemingly benign creature produces eggs that hatch into one of the worst pests: cabbage moth worms. I hate 'em with a passion. I wish they were edible, because I'd stir fry 'em, I hate them so much. They'll gnaw and gnaw so many kinds of plants, not just cabbage family plants like broccoli. They're quite annoying, and many people pick them off and smash them. Another solution is to spread Bacillus thuringiensis. It's a bacteria that they get in Nature and it kills them in a day or so, as long as it's not in too much direct sunlight. The bacteria won't harm beneficial insects either. It's commercially known as Dipel. http://www.ext.colostate.edu/pubs/insect/05556.html Sevin works equally well, but of course it's pesticide. http://www.gardentech.com/sevin_fastfacts.asp They'll chop your transplants down if you let them. You'll see the moths around maybe and then hastily attempt to check each plant for the eggs and worms. http://www.waldeneffect.org/blog/Cabbage_worms/ They can also look like this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cabbage_Moth Note the long list of veggies and fruit that they like. Crud. You can use row covers (sometimes called Cloches) to prevent the moth from laying the eggs so easily. http://www.thegardencloche.com/pages/polytunnel-cloche.html [/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
