How do you go about moving? Where do you start? We have lived in the same old white farm house for 18 years. Three of our children were born in this house. We have homeschooled here for 18 years. We have collected LOTS and LOTS of books! I believe we have about 10,000 books. Many of them are not easily replaced as they are out of print. They have been collected with love for myself, the children, their friends and future grandchildren to read. I don't want to part with them.
But it looks like we will be moving. The second old white farm house is actually on a farm and not stuck in the city. We will have to down size about 1/3 of our belongings. This is motivating us to clean things out and get rid of them. This is a healthy process! We needed to do that. But it is hard.
How do you start homeschooling or do you wait for the move to take place? At this point my children are getting a longer summer break.
But so many books to put into boxes. So many boxes to store. We are thinking of finding either a used classroom pod that a school doesn't want anymore or a trailer (either a house or worksite office) to install on the property as my library. But that won't happen immediately. How do you select the books you will want to access in the next year. So many decisions, and I hate making arbitrary decisions.
If you think of it, pray for us. The children can never remember moving before. There is a certain level of stress. If you live nearby, feel free to volunteer to pack boxes of books!!
