Any one Road-schooling here? We have been living full-time with 2 kids in tow for over a year now home-schooling in our 36 foot travel trailer.

Anyone else?

Hey... I remember seeing you around! It's been a while! No road schooling for us. That would be cool, though. Where have you been? Where are you going?

We aren't, but that flexibility is one of many reasons that we chose to homeschool!

Wow! Haha. There has always been something about traveling around in a camper/rv that seems so fun to me. It could be because I've never done it though! Haha

So what state do you register or comply with?

You are brave! I am way too OCD for that! We do move a lot so the flexibility of moving from one state to another is ONE of the reasons why we decided to homeschool.

We seriously considered it at one time, but we couldn't imagine living in a travel trailer with so many kids (we had six at the time).

Yes, I know it has been awhile. I have just been so busy that I have not had much "Me" time which = "justmommies" time, but I am back and trying to make sure I squeeze more of that into my busy schedule ~>lol of course look who I am telling, any homeschooling mom knows what I mean To answer a few questions, I comply with Florida. This is where we lived when we began homeschooling. As far as the states we have been to. We of course traveled all over Florida; from the keys to Pensacola. We also have been to Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Louisiana. I really want to go to Washington D.C and Colorado next! Right now we are back in Florida for year end evaluations and of course enjoying the summer & visiting family and friends.
~> I also was nervous about putting so many people in an RV, but we knew that is was an option we had to take due to financial reasons and now we are so glad we did because we have gotten to see so many great places and met great people so far. Currently I am in college (online classes). So, In about a year we will take a break from traveling when I am done with my pre req classes, so I can take my program at a college. However, when I am done with my education we are planning to go back on the road, except this time I will be doing travel jobs while we enjoy our travels.
Life on the road is a Blast! Of course it has it's negatives too, like 4 people and one small camper bathroom, not a good thing! Still, you learn how to manage by taking turns. Plus, living in a smal space makes you a great organizer What the camper lacks in big house comforts, it makes up for by being so mobile ~> being able to see new places and just have fun doing different things is always so interesting. Being free to go when and where is a nice trade off

I just want to say how jealous I am y'all! I would love to travel around and see the country, unfortunately I don't think Dh would ever even consider it.

I think it would be really fun to see the whole country in 1 year, but I think that's as much as I could handle.

I would love to do that. If DH's job was flexible and he could do it from wherever we were, I would totally do that.
