Life without internet.

Our old router finally gave up, after a few months of struggling. So we were internetless while we waited for the new one and had Tech Son get everything up and working.

It wasn’t that bad, for me. There are a few lessons I need internet for, but there’s plenty of books and other things the children can do in the meantime. In fact I realised they don’t have that much computer learning over all.

For the three biggies though it wasn’t so good. Josh had OU stuff to do and it had to be done online and Alex had just bought himself a month of tutorials. So it’s very good that we are back online.

I also realised that a lot of the worksheets and things I make need internet connextion.

A lot of what we do these days needs it.

So, I am glad we are sorted.

  1. It is amazing how important it has become in such a short time, isn’t it? There was a great story serialised on Radio Four about a woman who, with her family, gave up all media technology – telly, mp3s, laptops and so on – for six months. despite the benefits she still came straight back after six months because, she says, this is the world we live in.

  2. It’s harder for the older kids to do their studies now without the internet – even if it’s just doing research for a paper. It’s so much easier to use online sources, just because there are so many of them available. I’m glad you didn’t have to be disconnected for too long! 🙂
