Homeschooling “on the go” can be a lot of fun when you let it be. We find that we have the most fun when we are away from the house. I guess we don’t “homeschool” as much as we “on-the-go-school”. The idea of being away from the “classroom” is awesome and brings about a renewed energy. We may take too many “field trips”. Our “trips” don’t always go along with one of the bee’s (my nickname for the kids) curriculum. Some trips are more for us (the parents) or they could be planned just for one of the kids. Regardless of why or where we are, we always end up catering the trip so the kids learn while we are on the road. In the last month, we’ve road tripped to two states; one was for Bubba’s (my oldest child and only boy) martial arts tournament and the other one was for us to simply enjoy the destination. You can read about Bubba’s tournament and our sightseeing in Tallahassee.
Road Trip Homeschool – Destination: Biltmore Estates
My family is known for our cool road trips. What most people don’t know is that they are usually last-minute plans. For the trip to the Biltmore Estates, we left on a Thursday morning but came up with the entire idea a mere 12 hours prior to leaving. Our schedule isn’t very flexible even with my desire to be away. We have martial arts, dance, co-op, boy scouts, mops, and neighborhood friends. Sometimes being away isn’t easy but for some reason, we made this trip happen without missing a beat or an activity.
… When we travel we plan to stop at state parks, national parks, eccentric “hole-in-the-wall” places, diners we see on the Travel Channel, “roadside Americana”, etc., etc. We usually try to get off the beaten path to see part tourist areas and part local areas….
