Have you ever dreamed of traveling around the country, or even the world, homeschooling your kids?
Well, for the last four years, that’s exactly what my friend Tonya Prater, from Live the Adventure, has been doing.
In today’s podcast, Tonya generously shares with what’s like to travel and homeschool.
Tonya shares with us:
- How you can work educational opportunities into your travels, if you’re traveling full-time or just taking a family vacation
- Advice on how to get started as a traveling, homeschooling family
- Tips on how to stay safe and chose safe locations to stay and visit
- What it’s like to travel with a dog
- The pros and cons of living, working, and homeschooling while traveling
- How to stay connected with friends and family while you are on the road
- How to meet new families while traveling and where to find local educational sites to visit along the way
As a working, homeschooling mom, Tonya also shares how she balances working and homeschooling while living in a small camper (RV) with her family (which includes 3 teenagers and a dog), including where to find free interent access while on the road.
We even touched on homeschooling laws, record keeping, and how to deal with criticism from strangers when they learn you homeschool.
Tonya is a wonderful resources to learn from and I hope you enjoy this interview with her. I certainly did.
