    Not stupid! A WEMT is an EMT who is also trained/certified to stabilize, treat & protect patients in remote environments until air or land support arrives. Think stranded hikers/climbers, hunters, disaster/war zones, people *coughcoughLikeMe!coughcough* who work on remote shooting ranges...

    Well, my daughter talks a lot about finding a vocation that will allow her to stay at home and homeschool her children. First and foremost, she wants to get married and have children (she doesn't want to be a nun, despite the glamorous picture I've painted). She loves dogs and horses and does really well working with both. And she likes to sew and knit and crochet...I've been talking with her, as we sit together at our machines or over our needles, about turning one of these hobbies into a vocation. Dog trainers don't need college degrees and neither do horse trainers or trail guides. There is a really lovely store nearby that offers seamstress and dressmaker certifications - I've taken a few classes there and have really learned a lot! These are things that allow flexibility, can provide a good income and don't require college degrees.

    For girls, depending on how adventurous they are, trail guides, expedition leaders, EMTs (regular or wilderness), range safety officers, marksmanship/firearm instructors (women are a HUGE market right now!), wedding gown/prom dress alterations specialists, pattern makers (needlework or sewing), small business owners (bakery, quilt shop, bookstore), cake decorators (esp. if you specialize in weddings!), tutors, dog trainers...none of these careers require a college degree, but could be fulfilling options.
    My 10 year old daughter plans to :

    Have six children ..... at home, because hospitals scare her
    Work with horses in some capacity
    Live near her mother, so that I can homeschool her children
    Decorate cakes


    I'm going to ask a really stupid question, Mary. As a nurse for over 20 years, and a large portion of that in the ER, I've never heard of a wilderness EMT. Do tell.

Sadly, children are pushed into that because doing anything other than going to college is just weird in our society. We don't celebrate the kids who takes an apprenticeship with the local electrician or who decides to become a truck driver or a plumber.
    This is true, Mary...

    A fencing type duel with epi pens would attract my business 😉...Though there isn't a real need to attract my business since I am already a paying customer 😆

    You're welcome. For the record I have quite the reaction to hornets, so I carry my own epi-pen too! Maybe I should bring a few the next time we do a convention together.

    I went back and found that my video, too, is flawless. Thanks for fixing that!

    **I guess this means I should apologize for teasing you about your allergic reaction to calendars. However, while I am sorry I teased you about your hives and wheezing, I will continue to pester you about paper calendars. Only I'll bring an epi-pen to the forum when I do.**

    Apparently Vimeo had an issue when I uploaded the file. (We may have to find another system since we had the same issue with our conference videos from 2012 and 2013.) I am uploading again and I expect it to be ready in about 30 minutes. Please give it a try sometime after lunch and let me know if it works!

    Paul,

    I just watched it with my daughter and it worked fine! Thanks.

    Mary...

    You always put a smile on my face

    GREAT ideas! Not sure where daughter is headed but she has not excluded the idea of becoming a nun...Benedictine she says, haha. She does not talk about marriage or having a family much. But who knows what God has planned for her!

    Her father did cakes (even those cool 3D ones) for a long time before he started managing food service. But she hasn't been drawn to that though she is quite creative. Her creativity comes out in her writing and art.

    Otherwise, she already has herself pegged as a literature/history/Latin teacher for MP...Mrs. Cutrer (MPOA LATIN) is her idol! These instructors are such a wonderful on our children. That has been our experience so far.

Or a sword maker. He can't decide. Mr. Wright was the first person to give me permission to think about something other than college for my children.
