A few people have wondered what happens to the children’s educations during our two month trip around Italy and France.
‘I’m not allowed to take my child out of school for two months! Why can you?’
Home education doesn’t mean that you need to be at home in order to educate, or to be educated.
‘Home’ education simply means that you have the flexibility to educate, or to be educated, anywhere and in any way.
Caitlin is currently doing her first year of IGCSEs with Interhigh, and brought along her laptop and books for any days we were not out and about. She’ll catch up using the handy Lesson Library as and when. They know where she is and what she is doing and are fully supportive.
Did we take any of the other children’s curriculum with us?
Did we take any workbooks at all?
Did they do any lessons online?
What did you do?
We packed a box of stationery; paper, pens, colouring pencils and glue – that sort of thing – but they barely used them really.
Well, how did they learn?
So to answer the question: ‘What about the children’s educations?’
My answer would have to be: ‘What about it?’
