We are a creative homeschooling family of 3. I have homeschooled my 2 boys from the start and we do lots of unit studies and get out into our beautiful part of the world as often as we can.
As the boys are getting older and we are getting busier I find I am posting less about our journey but will continue to update occasionally.

On the road again

15 years ago
I was travelling with the boys father
we had a bus and a doberman and a wonderful time
and now-

The boys and I are heading off into the wild blue yonder.

We are following the road
where ever it may lead us
Leaving our beautiful home at Maclean will be hard but we have a wonderful house sitter who will look after our feathered friends and our pets.And we do have a lovely home on the roadThis is Sunny- our 'Stealth Camper"
This is where One of the boys will travel when we are driving and with the seats dropped back Mr12 will sleep here, Mr7 and I will be in the bed in the shot above.This is where I will be driving with one of the boys beside me.

Sunny will be a stealth camper, because at night we will put up screens in the windows that will block all the light and give us 100% privacy on the inside. We should be able to park anywhere and just look like a van parked on the street, but we will be safely, comfortably snuggled up inside for the night.

We are planning on an 8 week journey through NSW and Victoria.
Hoping to catch up with friends and family and to just to spend some time together, the 3 of us, having fun and exploring new place, meeting new people and road schooling.

I am just taking the basics school wise as I think the boys will be learning so much anyway. We are taking MUS for maths and have copied the lessons onto a thumb stick to conserve power on the laptop, and I have photocopied the work sheets. For language arts we will be doing a travel journal- I am thinking the boys will cover L.A., creative arts, geography and some history in their journals, but we will also be doing copy work and narration and poetry Tuesdays- we are taking Henry Lawson, Banjo Patterson and Slim Dusty along for the trip. We are also taking our Australian History books- Our Sunburnt Country and The Wide Brown Land and will be visiting lots of museums and historic sites on our journey as well as the War Memorial in Canberra.
