Amen and Amen!

Okay, so how about THIS????
What do you do when the GRANDMA is sick and the Mom needs to be away from home, too often?
Same thing. Have the kids do what they can, do a documentary day.
My oldest sister and I both take care of Mom and BOTH homeschool. Sometimes, we send the kids to one house, while the other sis goes to visit Mom.

When kids see real life happening while their young, they will get an EXCELLENT education for how to deal with emergency situations when they are older. Instead of panicking, it will just roll off their backs and they will get what needs done, DONE!


And we all lived happily ever after...


Life.
It's Worth Living.
It's Worth Giving.
Choose Life.

Build up the Culture of Life!
We can change hearts, by bringing up the next generation to embrace Life at an early age.
If only moral people are willing to do that, mass abortion will end.

I take a break... this is home education, not school. ;) Missing a day or worksheets or what ever, is not going to harm children at all.. it's good to teach flexibility and learning happens, no matter what you do. God created children to learn... and it's hard to stop! :) They learn through life not just worksheets and text books. :)

He's 8 Betsy. He's not going to miss college because you and hubby are sick.
Teach him how to SERVE by having him give you two TLC.
Teach him how to prepare simple meals, so YOU don't have to.
Pop in Grandpa Newton's Workshop videos which are AWESOME. Pop in ANY video.
Listen to books on Tape.
Let him choose 3 types of books and plop down on a picnic blanket next to you and read away!
Send him with a homeschooling friend and let HIS mom teach something cool that day.
Let him on the computer and play some educational games.

THIS IS his education. Life happens....and you learn to work with it.

And we all lived happily ever after...

In those situations I've always had y kiddos complete whatever work they're able to do independently, and then the rest of the day is a "documentary day". We watch educational shows together.
