Trailer Park Unschoolers

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

The First Week without Co-op

Leave a comment

This is going to be brief, but not bad. We missed co-op for the first time this week. The kids were sad, but they took it well. Sander was the most upset. He was sad to miss his friends.

Oz’s first day of work exhausted him. He was late, thanks to forgetting to set his alarm, but overall it was a good day for him. He’s looking forward to this being a step in the right direction.

The kids also got to do something fun. Grocery shopping may not seem like fun, but we always enjoy it. It was just the kids and me. Oz wanted to stay home and nap. We rocked out to music in the car. We talked a lot. We joked around in the store. Then we rode home and Corde and I sang along to the radio with all three boys attempting to chime in. We all have sore throats, so we must have sounded horrible, but we didn’t care.

Sadly, it’s probably best that the kids were home today. Sander ended up throwing up in the toilet at the end of the night. It’s probably a good thing he didn’t have dinner. I don’t mean to imply it would have wasted food because I’ve heard some people say that. I’m just relieved food didn’t make him even more uncomfortable, poor guy. I know food can make an upset tummy worse.

Oh, and for anyone who is interested in helping to support our family, no, I’m not looking for handouts. However, look us up on Facebook to see our cool knit goods for kids! Bear Foot Knits is my new project. I have a couple arm warmer and mitt designs up there and more will be coming. I’ll have a link as soon as I can figure it out on my phone!

With four kids, who has time for much? We spend a lot of time together, which translates to a lot of knitting time for me when we hang out. We've been trying to get back to our unschooling roots. We watch a lot of videos, play a lot of games, and pay attention to the things we notice in our everyday life. It's been quite the big adventure!
