The Jeubs made a really tough decision earlier this week. We were all settled on packing up all 15 of us heading to San Diego for the Stoa NITOC tournament, rolling the honor in with a vacation. Typical homeschool thing. We’ve been extremely busy trying to pull all the details together.
Then sickness hit us. Me particularly, then our 3-yr old Priscilla, followed by virtually all the littlest kids…for now. Our plan was to head out at 4:00 am Thursday morning for our pilgrimage. It would have been a lot of fun, but because sickness ruled our day, it just wasn’t gonna happen. The Stoa NITOC trip has become another tournament trip, rather than the end-of-the-schoolyear family vacation that other families are enjoying.
Good news: we pulled together plans for a California Debate Camp in Laguna Hills in August. We’re already planning to follow that camp with a family vacation. So, we’re looking at this as a postponement. We’re disappointed, but this happens sometimes with big families. Eh, it happens in all families.
I imagine the girls will get a lot of “where’s your family?” questions at NITOC, but that’s okay. We wish them well and pray that they don’t get sick.
