We are homeschooling families, however, much of our learning happens outside of the home.
We look for opportunities to include field trips and educational travel into our homeschool activities as a way to help our children learn about the world around them.
People ask us if we intentionally add “lessons” to our travel and vacation plans. Sometimes we do, but usually our learning on vacation happens naturally as we explore the places we visit.
