Welcome to #familyfriday link up party! I hope you had a great week!
Off Line Adventures and Reflections
Last weekend I took some time offline and did the hardest thing physically ever in my life. Not kidding!
I out back camped, which means we carried in our *stuff*. My pack was light, about 20 lbs the hike was okay 8.5 kms one way. Easy right? Except. I started at sea level and went up 600 meters. and down, and up and down x 4. Zigzags and straight up, like mountain goat pathways. We got lost and added 2000 steps to the trip. I got hurt on the way in. Pulled tendons or something…the part that holds your knee and keeps it from popping out the side. Whatever it is called it hurts. A lot.
Here is the truth. There were moments taking the next step I wanted to break down and cry. I didn’t want to take one. more. excruciating step. But I had too. No one was going to save me. I was in the middle of nowhere. I had to keep going. I had to keep trying. Through the pain.
As I walked I thought of the moments of homeschooling and working when people ask me why? Why do you do both? Get rid of one-stop working or stop homeschooling. But … that is not an option.
I told my kids they could choose and they choose homeschooling. I sure am not going to quit on my kids because it got “hard”. I have to work to put food on the table. I don’t have a choice. Again, I will not quit. BUT I will make adjustments. I will ask for help. I will find a way. One step at a time. Because standing on that mountain…it really was worth it. Just like I know with all my heart homeschooling and working is soooo worth it
You can see a few of the photos I took here on my Facebook Page.

Family Friday Link-Up Party #29
Okay, here are a few basic rules to keep all of you rowdy bloggers and moms in place. (I’m totally kidding here. I have a special sort of sarcasm.)
- Family-friendly posts only! I do not want to see any filth and nothing scary (especially no zombies-they freak me out!). Let’s keep it PG, maybe PG-13 rated.
- Family Friday Link-Up Party starts Fridays 1:00 am ET and closes Mondays at 11:55 pm ET.
- One post will be selected by our hosts to be featured in the next Family Friday Link-Up Party.
- All posts will be shared by hosts on social media.
Share Family Friday Link-Up Party!
We will love you forever & ever! Plus, the more eyes we get on your favorite printable, the greater chance that it will be featured next week.
