Looking For a Secular Florida Umbrella School?

Thursday, January 08, 2004


1: a region believed to exist on the border of hell as the abode of souls barred from heaven through no fault of their own

2a: a place or state of restraint or confinement b: a place or state of neglect or oblivion c: an intermediate or transitional place or state : a middle ground

3: a West Indian acrobatic dance originally for men

2a, b, and c: That's where we are...in the midst of a move, trying to close three complicated real estate deals. It feels like 1:, with enough bending over backwards to be 3:.

Our transitional state has lasted two years now. Splitting our time between a tiny little fish shack on a southwest Florida, boat-only, barrier island and a very small house on the east coast where Dad still works has been challenging. We will hopefully be settled into an adequately sized house by the end of this month.

How to homeschool in the midst of this? Well, let's just say, we've been real flexible. Today, the kids staged and videotaped a very elaborate rock concert, news report, and a sit com using characters from Seinfeld, all with their Playmobil people. That's educational, right?
