Hello all! We plan to be away from home for the entire third quarter and since it is such a long time, we decided that it was just not smart to skip school, I am not a fan of the summer brain drain and never allowed school to be fully out, even when they were enrolled in private schools. I would always put them in some type of education program and we would do summer workbooks, so needless to say school would go on! We have one entire suitcase dedicated to just books and we found out the hard way that it was just TOO MUCH weight for an airplane. We had to open each suitcase and spread the book love. Everyone always has too many clothes or shoes or bags...nope, we're nerds with too many books!
The sun shines bright while we are away and what better way to enjoy it than to do school work outside?! Oh yes, to do it pool side! Big smiles and happy faces say it all! We love waking up and having our breakfast together and then heading outdoors to do our work! Sometimes it's a bit breezy and we need to wear sweaters, but it's always awesome!
One thing I love about when we travel, is getting to know the area and the best way to do it, is to master public transportation. Needless to say, it can be scary, but that is what an adventure starts out as! I purchased a week pass for us so that we could come and go as we please and figure it out as we go! Day one was quite the show, as I was completely clueless but I pretended to know what I was doing and the kids loved it all!
Workbook work is one thing, but we also took our travels into consideration. We studied the states we would be visiting and budgets and also worked on plans for our days along with miles walked and things like that. I love teaching my kids about every day things as well as book things!
There is ALWAYS time for fun on all of our trips! Exploring is never out of the question and learning something new is ALWAYS happening!
Enjoy every minute my friends!!
