We have learned that our children succeed with a schedule. Since we have loosely started homeschooling two years ago it has simply become a part of our daily life and our children have come to expect it each day. I knew that if I did not bring homeschool activities that when we usually do book work (during our youngest sons afternoon nap time) that our older children would be confused and more easily bored! We continued most days to do our book work and activities during nap time each day and it worked great!
One of the best parts of going to a new place is the opportunity to explore new sites and fun places to visit! We did a few fun field trips while we were away to the local zoo, and other great activities! It is also a great way to learn about the local history and geography! Make sure to check out what is around where you are traveling to and plan for when they are open during your stay!
Traveling and being away from home with little ones can be stressful, but with God anything is possible. Take the time to start and end each day with prayer and ask God to bless you and your family with a love of exploring His beautiful world and creations while also enjoying precious time together. Take time to visit fun churches, chapels and shrines in the area that you are visiting as well!
