What did I say when given the opportunity to move to the jungles of Cambodia away from civilization surrounded by waterfalls, elephants, and hill tribe people. “Yes!” But, one caveat, I would have to homeschool my 4 children. To some of you elementary ed grads, thats a slice of pie but not me. I am a nurse practitioner and love helping the sick, working, and sending kids to school. Don’t get me wrong, I like my kids but each day sending them to school is a pleasure. So I never pictured myself having the patience to be with my kids all day long. I mean half of the time I have to play the most dreaded mother role: referee. So a year ago with hesitation and fear, we moved. I began homeschooling my kids. With no supplies, I didn’t know where to begin. Fortunately I found a wonderful website: www.allinonehomeschool.com. This is an already prepared and tried curriculum for homeschool that is free, yes free! Its easy to use and all online including the books and did I mention it was free. So I got started and I want to share with you the advantages I found in homeschooling this past year.
I know that homeschooling is not for everyone, but do consider these advantages when an opportunity comes for you to travel with kids! Don’t let a school slow you down.
