Back up Plans-April 2022

I am not sure if anyone ever makes back-up plans for their homeschool in case the teacher-aka mom-is out. I never have, and I guess that I have lucked out for the past 11 years. Well, April brought out the need for back-up plans. On April 1st, my parents experienced an emergency that has kept me away from the house for the month of April and most likely-part of May as well. I guess the back-up plan became-do what you can and thank goodness we homeschool so we can finish the year in the summer (Parks and I are totally against this-and we still have to do it).

The month of April has flown by. Parks worked with his tutor on math and went to his personal finance class. He and I are reading a book together. He has worked on his bikes a ton and got to ride quite a bit. Sims came home early to help with Parks. Luckily, Sawyer is still away at school and has not been effected. The month of April was very exciting for her. She went on a white water paddling weekend and a rock climbing weekend. The week in between the two weekends, her class camped at a campground and did classes outdoors. I think this has been her favorite month away so far.

  1. I’ve been trying to get caught up on my blog reading. I have to say that I have a fair amount of jealousy reading about all the adventures in your family. What awesome experiences they are having.

    • If you would have told me in December all that my kids will do in 2022, I would have laughed. My crew typically doesn’t leave home/our area. I am still in awe at what they have done and accomplished. They grow up fast. (And I read your blog with a bit of jealousy as well. My husband and I always said that we would foster and we haven’t yet. I hope in time. I appreciate that you share your journey with us).


      • Fostering is a challenging and amazing journey. If it’s something you are interested in doing, my recommendation is to find an agency and attend an informational meeting. Most agencies have them and it’s a great way to get any questions answered to determine if it’s something you really want to do. My husband and I were on the fence about fostering and it’s now been over 10 years since we sat in our first agency’s conference room learning about foster care and asking questions. Of course, I’m always happy to answer questions as well.
