Mountain Living & Summer
When we moved to this remote area we knew that making a decision about school for our children would be tough.
In the past we have done: Christian Private School, Public School, Un-School, Public School and online public school.
The truth is, every child is different and every situation is different, you have to make the best decision for you and your family.
desire was to homeschool our youngest child. But we had to be realistic. We are spending majority of our days doing construction and running the roads for supplies. We come inside exhausted and ready for bed.
Our internet is deplorable at best and the local library isn't so local- 40 minutes away. In addition, we have not integrated into a community yet so we don't have any connections with other families or children for her to play
As we visited all the schools in the county we had to choose from, we prayed for guidance in making the right decision.
We went to eight different schools in our 'area' over the past couple weeks and as I was ending our school tours, I left this tiny school for last. Everyone from the school staff members to the locals discouraged me from picking this school because of it's size. Too small they
Well 'too small' fit just right. Not only did we fall in love with the staff, but they offer a Summer School program for four weeks and just so happened to have an opening for Linden. She will start today!
Please keep her in your prayers for safety and guidance. Public school would never have been our first choice, but it is what we felt was the best choice for us at this time.
Do You Ever Find Free Food?
During the time where we're all focusing on growing our gardens, so is mother nature. In fact, she is out-showing me in every way right now.
Flowers are in bloom like lilies, clover, honeysuckle, wild iris, dandelion, and lilac- just to name a few. Wild berries are starting to ripen all over the hillside.
I was a little sad at the fact I couldn't grow a huge garden this Spring due to our move, then
mother nature decided to give me an abundance of wild edible free food.
A list of my foraging finds is in the post below. What free food do you have growing in your area?
