School is starting back up! For us that means that at about 2pm every Monday through Friday we have a preschooler, transitional kindergartener and a 1st grader all rolling through the door demanding food at once. That and telling the legends of the playground. Very similar to a show involving dragons, armies and intrigue…just smaller.
It’s back to school time here! People frequently ask how the kids manage school when our business requires a lot of family travel. I shared some of our frustrations and schooling solutions last year. We’ve taken a blended approach by keeping our son in public school and using the district’s contract learning program when we feel it’s appropriate, opting out of certain things that don’t work for him and supplementing with our own curriculum at home. There were a few bumps along the way, but we got into an awesome groove by the end of the year. We’ve been continuing our at-home lessons through the summer and it’s been such a joy. Sometimes I really do think that I could teach them myself.
