Because you don't need to be rich to unschool!

You Have to Do What? By When? You’re Crazy!

Oh, the co-op… We’ve barely started and already there’s drama. I mean the “dog ate my homework” kind of drama. This could be a long year.

It’s really kind of my fault. I should have read the syllabus. I would have known the homework for this week. I should have printed out her vocabulary cards and gotten them done. However, I didn’t and I’m now kicking myself. Thankfully it’s just one class, but I feel like I should have stayed on top of it all. This week was so much chaos.

I can’t say as I would have had much time to do it all. First we had our appointment with family services on Monday. Tuesday Scott left for California. Wednesday we got to meet the new neighbors and it was kid craziness. Today we met with our family services case worker, applied for food stamps for the third time to get the renewal going, and took Oz to reapply for his old city job. Now that we have a car he can actually keep the job. Thankfully, they’re interviewing in two weeks and he gets to be in the first group of interviews because they’ve already trained him. It may not seem like much, but add regular errands, like cashing checks, grocery shopping, and everything else and we just ran out of time.

So what’s the big deal? Corde had to do a key word outline for her paper. She then had to write a rough draft of a story based on that outline. The rough draft is due tomorrow. I found out right before she went to bed. She swore she had no homework! I should have known better. I was the same way.

Thankfully it’s not every day we have a member of our household come in or out of our lives. Her teacher will hopefully be understanding. Everyone knows about my road trip to Georgia now, I’m sure. The situation with Scott will be news, but with everything we’ve had going on and never having done anything so formal before, hopefully everyone will be understanding.

So, keep your fingers crossed for Oz getting that job! It would be enough to put us one step closer to something better. Either that or if he gets a salary management position at his current job, that would work too. However, working for the city is better hours, better benefits, and a job we know he loves a lot more. And keep your fingers crossed for Cords and her lack of homework assignment.

With four kids in the house, who has time for much? Well, we're trying to make it work, trying to get as close to our unschooling roots as we can while state restrictions and family pressures try to stand in our way. Every day is a new adventure.
