The Homeschool Minute ~ Gena Suarez
We’ve been on the road since for what seems like forever, and it will be a while before we get back home. Although we haven’t done “schooling” in the traditional sense, the kids are learning. They’re learning about flying (Julia went up in a glider for her first flight lesson and got to pilot the plane). They’ve seen some interesting places and learned some geography. Paul bought Sani (6) her first road atlas and has been going over how that works and has been showing her some of our route. Chloe (3) has been using the iPad for her schooling; we have some educational apps. Sani, too, has been using the iPad (her reading app). We also love to sing in the van together, which is Chloe’s favorite part of any ride. And there’s been a lot of character training going on–there has to be with five kids and two adults in one van. (Grin.)
Mama, here are some thoughts about training.
Psalm 32:1 says “How blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered!”
Mama, that is you. And you are training up your children in the Lord, just as you are supposed to be doing–at home and on the go. God’s word is the authority by which you live, and your children see you modeling this. Are you perfect? Are they perfect? No, only the Lord is, but He is always pruning, refining, shaping and changing us to be more like Him.
Keep walking, Mama. You are forgiven! His grace covers you because you have made Him Lord of your life.
Daughter of the King: Look up and literally FEEL the hope that is within you. It is yours, and He will never leave or forsake you. Take hold of that; His hand is on your head today.
P.S. Whether you want to school informally or formally while you’re on the go, here are some ideas from the magazine:
“School in a Suitcase: How to Homeschool on the Road” – Alexander Marestaing
“Traveling Around Your City, Your State, Your Country, & Your World” – Dr. Mary Hood
“Take a Road Trip with Your Preschoolers!” – Kendra Fletcher
“Traveling Blessings” – Liz Lane
