Travel is the Best Education
Even before we had children, we know we wanted to homeschool so we could travel. I stand in awe of the great works the Lord is doing in the education of our children by our time together, away from home. While we live in “the happiest seaside town in America” according to Coastal Living Magazine, I often say “homeschool is a misnomer. We are hardly ever home, and it certainly doesn’t look like school!”
This month alone, we are blessed to hit the road and visit some incredible places around our Sunshine State. It’s not accidental. We are very intentional about our time together, and time away. We try and wrap daddy’s business travels with our homeschool adventures. And, we are truly blessed.
I hope this 31-day series is inspiring you to get out and GO more! Today, hop over to my friend Jamerrill’s awesome site at FreeHomeschoolDeals.com where I’m guest posting and find out why travel is such a critical part of our children’s education, and why it should be important to your family, too.
