Weather: 60 Degrees & Rain
With our friends leaving last weekend, we have had the past week to ourselves. We've spent almost all of that time trying to get our stuff moved over from the camper to the cabin. Organization has been the big focus as it takes a little time and planning to get the items you once had in a 2200 sq ft home into you 900 sq ft cabin. Luckily, with a little persistence and patience, we are starting to see a little light at the end of the tunnel. If all goes well, maybe we will have everything moved over and in it's place in the next few days.
As weather would go, our time here has aloud us to experience some beautiful conditions with sunny skies and temps in the mid 60s. Unfortunately, on Wednesday evening, the rain set in and it has been raining ever since. The extended forecast doesn't look much better with showers possible each day for the next week. We're hoping for a break in the clouds here and there so we can get back out to the river.
As I believe we had mentioned in the past, we plan to home school the boys this school year as we are unsure what the winter weather will hold and the fact that we may have to move due to job opportunities. Today we met with Cameron and Colvin's academic advisors and both were very nice and very helpful. The state of AK seems to be very supportive of home schooling as the state provides each child with a $1600 allotment to pay for their curriculum, books, materials, computers, supplies and even extra circular activities such as basketball, football, soccer and other PE related and Fine Arts related classes or events. We decided on the curriculums today and ordered the needed materials which should be here in a week or two. The boys even received new Dell Laptops today, compliments of the state of AK, to help with research and homework. Both Robin and the boys are really excited to get things started!
After our meeting with the advisors, we stopped by the Rec. Center and signed Cole up for Basketball for this winter. He may also take some gymnastics classes which will start in a couple of weeks. As for Cam, he hasn't decided exactly what extra-curricular activities he wants to participate in yet, but he has lots of options.
Until next time... God Bless & Safe Travels!
