You are travelling a lot ! 25 October 2010

I get a lot of questions for my frequent travelling trips, like:
-Unschooling means provide lots of outing?
-Does unschooling means travelling a lot?
-You have been travelling more than the sum of a few people's travelling schedule!
-Look at all the places you have been! I am tired. How do you cope?

Homeschooling is a way of life. I cannot tell you how to homeschool. Because your life and mine would be unique. There is no hard and fast rules. You just have to do it to know it. And your child will surely show you the direction she wants to take if you care to listen with an open heart.

Yes, I have been travelling more since the beginning of this year. That is because learning outdoor befits the three of us. Hui grew into a toddler who has needs that are immediate and she has a way of spoiling even the best-laid plan. A temporary 'field trip curriculum' fits us all. It is serving us well for now, since it catered restless curious Hui while introducing En to lots of new and interesting things.  

It also gives me a break from a messy home like these,

Left - Oh messy. Right- En's stone soup on top of Hui's puzzle. Yes, the idea must be from the Caldecott Honor book Stone Soup
Left- books lining the short hallway. Right- hui prepared juices.

I love traveling with the girls. I love it because I get to spend great time with them. I love it is also because those are the time that I have the opportunity to exchange information with them. Be it on small stuff like food, trees, animals or even stuff like running a business, or simply the economy, history or science. Is a time where we engage, and these are so precious. I don;t have enough of those.
