    Smile Homeschooling twins in the PNW

    Greetings,

    Excited to find this forum as it has had some stellar resources when lurking.

    We've been a homeschooling family for the last 12 years, with our eldest homeschooler has graduated and is now on full ride at WWU.
    Our twins are currently homeschooling, with a focus on travel & roadtrips.
    We are currently mapping across the US & Canada to see National and Provincial Parks as our main source for my handbuilt "curriculum" this year.
    We just returned from Yosemite and Crater Lake, previously we were at Glacier in MT, Banff and Whistler....and shortly we'll be heading to Yellowstone & Badlands.
    They lead the learning and seeing new places, faces and food has been the best. I grew up traveling and living as an expatriate in Asia, so it's relatable & helps satisfy my wanderlust too.

    We are frequently offline depending on where we are at, however, I hope to contribute as much as I learn here.

    Mahalo,
    Malia

    Welcome! Interested to hear more about your adventures
    I'm a work-at-home mom to three, homeschool enthusiast, and avid planner fueled by lattes and Florida sunshine. My oldest is 6 and is a fircond grader (that's somewhere between first and second, naturally), my preschooler just told me she wants to learn how to read, and my toddler is a force of nature.

    I gather all kinds of secular homeschool resources and share them at TheHomeschoolResourceRoom.com.

    Being able to get out in the world and do tons of hands-on exploring...was one of my favorite things about homeschooling Nothing as cool as you're describing...but I loved learning outside a "classroom". LOVE travel learning! Wish we could have done more of it

    My twins and your twins would have a fantastic time - travelling and exploring the world around them is one of their favourite activities. You can't put a price on what kids learn while being out in the world seeing life happen.
    Mum to twin 8YO boys. 'Loxie''who is happy, loving and loves singing. 'Bean' who is quieter, critical in thought and has a wry sense of humour. One husband, often travelling for work. Looking at 'home at school' / topic / unschooling as a blend.
