Not sure if I updated about our latest Homeschooling News? Thought I better get everyone up to date with what we are doing regards homeschooling!
Homeschooling New Life on the Road Style
Since we are stopped for a time in one spot (hurry up hubby and finish the job already!!) we have two children attending schools. Nicholas is loving Grade 8 at High school and Cameron is in Grade 5 at Primary School. Did you all notice how I left out the words “Loving Grade 5“? Well that is because he only goes to school for the friends, he doesn’t actually go for the education. And now that a few issues have happened with one boy hitting him a little bit too much (the kid thinks its funny?) he is not too keen to keep on going. The school camp that is coming up soon is the only reason why he is still at the school.
We get lots of questions about Homeschooling all of the time – from comments on our facebook fan page, to even emails that are sent regards what to do for Homeschooling, how many hours it takes us to homeschooling to even what system we like to use.
Instead of re-answering questions we thought we would ask a fellow traveller who was homeschooled while travelling with her Mum many years ago about her ideas/thoughts and share Children Their World Their Education!
What about their education?
By Sarah Pye
“Schooling and education are not synonymous,” schoolteacher, Margaret Pye wrote in an article published in 1981 in a sailing magazine. She should know after ‘boat schooling’ two teenagers. Margaret is my mother and I was one of those children. In 1979 our family set out from England on a journey of discovery.
