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.
