    Have a teen daughter and a almost 2 year old son, Iíve loved them being home- not the economic shut down or being ordered to stay home but being at home with the tribe. Iíve also started a curriculum; we tend to the livestock, cut brush, stack fire wood , reading and math lessons . Daily bible lessons, shooting the pellet guns , exercise and martial arts work. Long walks, scouting for turkey hunting . Games and telling tales of family history. Been great

    With my wife & I both semi? retired, having our 15 year old
    son at home has been fun, so far! He & I have been spending
    more time on Call of Duty WWII for sure, but yesterday, we
    cut saplings & built a 6 foot tall mock up of an observation
    tower we're thinking about building on the lower end of our
    property. It will be a refresher for his lashing skills for the
    Pioneering merit badge, right? He's just 3 badges away from
    his required 21, so we're going to concentrate on those in
    addition to his school work. Our county is one of the few in
    our AO that has had a virtual day program for a few years
    now. On snow days, they can log in on their school issued
    chrome books and receive assignments from their teachers
    in order to not extend the school year way in to the summer
    season because of adverse weather. With the Covid19 closings,
    the class assignments are more like actual class work, than the
    busy work they would normally get on snow days. So at least
    his academics won't suffer too much!

    We're also researching higher end air rifles, so we can really
    begin to on marksmanship quietly in our driveway. Lots of
    projects in the works!

    So is this what home schooling is like? In short, we're doing Ok.

    Always entertaining, mildly offensive

    My 11 year old and my 13 year old sons helped me build a new outdoor dining table this weekend. There's no woodshop in their school anymore, so I figured we'd step it up at home while they're here. I'm FAR from a master carpenter, but I think it came out well. We'll be staining it once it looks like we have a few days of good weather to look forward to.
