We have been sick, but the schooling continues. If anything it's easier not to have to get Amy and Esther off to school or catch them up with homework when we are homeschooling. Being sick means we watch more documentaries (and do more laundry it seems).
We found a new YouTube channel we like that has nature documentaries: Brave Wilderness. I like him, because he explains the animals well, but also has clean language when he's startled. It seems he gears his films for children. So far we've watched about Giant Black Sea Slugs, snapping turtles, wolverines, and Garr fish. Check it out by going to YouTube and then typing Brave Wilderness.
We also are going to try our hand at making natural yeast for pancakes and bread baking. The Kings Roost has some YouTube movies about how to do it. I like the idea of learning these self reliant skills and hope by the time my girls go to college they not only know how to read, write, draw, play an instrument, and hopefully speak German or Spanish, but that they also know how to cook, do laundry, make bread (and yeast), clean and garden, and live a budget.
