Two Weeks!





My first reaction was Whhhaaaat? Are you kidding me? Two whole weeks! How am I going to keep the kids entertained for two whole weeks? After I got the drama out of me and after Chris reminded me how I had wanted to try my hand at homeschooling, I settled down.

While initially I had thought that it was a bit of an over-reaction on the government's part, I am now thankful for their effort and the measures that they are taking. I wouldn't want to live through --nor have my children live through -- the long drawn-out saga that was SARS. I'd rather the government take such seemingly 'drastic' measures and tackle this now, early on, than wait until things get worse.

Okay, I've said all of that and I meant it, but What am I going to do with the kids for two weeks?!!!

Wow - that's scary. That would be too close to home for my comfort.

But - so nice of your husband to look for the silver lining...will he be helping with this adventure? :)

A little stressful to be sure in more ways than one! I have the same question as Lindy above about your husband. Ha!
I have actually purchased books on ideas to occupy kids indoors (since we have a longer rainy season here than most and my child is VERY active) so, if you are looking for any ideas.....
Take care.

P.S. Love that 'Her Royal Feistiness' caption. Ha ha!

About a month ago, several schools in our area shut down for several weeks for this same reason. I (s)whined about it, too!

I homeschooled my daughters until they graduated from high school. You can have an adventure a day. Something fun and something purposeful. For example, have a mud day. Hide things in mud. Find insects that live in mud. Study pigs and why they like mud. Make a mud cake and then have a mud fight!

The next day, go on thing finding. That's where the kids find "junk" that are called things and they make something artistic out of their things that they find. They can study trash collecting, recycling, etc.

Good luck. Hope the two weeks go by fast.
