Being sick while homeschooling is so much more sane than having to send kids off to school while they feel lousy, because they can’t miss schoolwork or activities, or whatever. We are all feeling a bit under the weather today, in addition to having had to shovel over 12″ of snow that fell yesterday. So we’re ALL going slow today. It feels so natural to just let your body do what it needs to do to recover. There is lots of reading to be done, drawing, playing with much-loved toys, and even some computer time. I am fortunate that I can work from home, but then, I gave up having a lot of new stuff, a new car, or even new anything to stay at home. My husband is grateful that he can take a nap if he needs one. When you come right down to it, we have all we need…good food that I made, warm clothes thanks to goodwill and yard sales, cars that work, although they sure aren’t pretty, and plenty of heat in the form of wood that my husband and sons cut all summer. What else do we need?
