AUGUST Why Homeschool?

Welcome to our homeschool and travel blog. We hope this will be a good way to keep you informed on what the kids are learning in homeschool and let you join us on our travels around the world.

First, you may ask, why homeschool? We have many reasons for wanting to homeschool and we are happy to talk about them endlessly if you would like. Since this is a blog for everyone and everyone may not want to listen to all of our reasons we will just give you our top five:

1. With our upcoming move to Europe we want to be able to travel and have the kids see as much as we possibly can.
2. We want our kids to increase their knowledge of nature and be outdoors as much as possible.
3. We want them to experience life through real life experiences (ie trips to see the actual places they are learning about in their textbooks or meeting people, eating food, and learning languages from different cultures).
4. We want them to practice good nutrition, have more physical exercise and watch less tv.
5. We want them to learn to be creative and independent.

Above all, we want to incorporate these things with a good education and we are lucky enough to be given the opportunity to live all over the world and have the financial means to homeschool.
