Yesterday was our “first day of school”. I had a vague plan for this school year and tried to pack accordingly when we loaded up for this trip back in May. But, as with most moves, it got a bit chaotic at the end. I was apprehensive last week when I pulled out the books and supplies I had brought along for the upcoming year. To my surprise, I had managed to plan fairly well and brought along just about everything we needed (minus middle school science curriculum and a few other minor things). Ta-da!
Betsy is now officially an 11th grader and George is a 7th grader. Our first day went well and we are off to a great start. I can’t wait to see what this school year will hold for us. “Roadschooling” is going to be a bit different than “homeschooling”. I am keeping our schedules looser than usual so that we can take full advantage of all of the awesome opportunities that schooling on the road provides. We have already been amazed by the experiences our children had over the summer with hands on learning in science, history, and geography!
