Sometimes I get kind of crazy ideas, and then later freak out about those ideas.
In the first episode of this season, I shared how we were doing a camping/survival/outdoors unit study – it seemed like such a good idea because my kids were so into it.
But then one night I woke up around 4 a.m. thinking to myself that camping is not school, and maybe I needed to scrap the whole thing and buy some math textbooks and finally learn the Timeline Song.
Luckily, what I’ve learned about kid-related -4 a.m.-panic-wake-ups is that the next day, my kids usually do something great that reminds me that we’re OK; and that probably my kids will not end up as Baby Drivers.
That happened – and so I decided to double-down and we booked a cabin for our first-ever Anderson Family Camping Expedition.
We didn’t get crazy – there was a gas station 2 minutes away from the campground, and our cabin had an air conditioner.
BUT, it was the perfect start for us and guess what – it showed me that kids (and adults, ahem … ) really can learn a lot from camping.
