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

The Cold Makes Us Lazy

Leave a comment

It was cold out today.  We’d been enjoying such nice weather that the cold seemed to hit especially hard, resulting in none of us wanting to do anything.  We plowed through the stuff we really need to knock out every day, then moved on with our day.  Everyone but Corde took a nap.

Oh, did I mention Corde was home today?  She missed her bus.  I’ve determined that this is the last time she misses her bus.  If she misses again I’m just going to tell the school we’re withdrawing her to homeschool for the rest of the year.  She wants to stay because it means she can go to all of the end of the year events, but she wants to homeschool next year.  Personally I think she might be better off going to the local vocational school for culinary, but that’s just me.  I can’t decide her life for her.

As for the rest of us, we skipped out on jujitsu today.  It was cold and none of us really felt like going.  Given there’s supposed to be snow tomorrow and Wednesday, we’re not going to Wednesday class either.  The kids are going to be home on Friday, so it’s going to be a whole week off.  I just hope the weather turns nice next week so that we can get back to going again.  I don’t want to miss too many days.

Tomorrow is going to be a snow day for Corde, which means more working from home.  It’s going to be good having her home in a lot of ways.  She helps Sander with his work much better than I ever could.  There’s something cool about having big sister help instead of mom.  Sisters are so much cooler, right?

I’m honestly looking forward to the warmer weather.  I have a feeling we’re never really going to be home.  I plan to do a lot of science in nature.  We’ve already started with making note of the signs of spring.  I hope to do a lot more outside time.  It’ll mean falling behind in math, phonics, and writing, but I’m okay with that.  The kids need to be learning from life more than they need to be sitting down with books anyway.

All of that seemed like it was just around the corner, and then the forecast called for snow.  I’m not thrilled about that.  I’m ready to be over the snow and I’m waiting for a chance where we can move down south again where it’s warm.  (Of course, I talk a big game, but I’ll probably find myself in an RV traveling the country first, which isn’t going to happen any time soon.)

Instead of a lot of work tomorrow, we’re probably going to be doing a lot of gaming.  The kids like playing Minecraft and Little Big Planet.  They haven’t even gotten to the creator stuff in Little Big Planet.  They’ll really like it when they get there.  I have a feeling, in spite of the snow, we’re going to have a good day tomorrow.

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.
