Had to share how cute this book is that we got for Amara. It’s pretty much a “Where’s Waldo” that illustrates her in different professions. We’ve always told Amara that she can be whatever she wants and we love that this book encourages that...not to mention the fact that the character looks just like her! 🤩😍 • • • • #blineacademy #roadschool #homeschool #homeschooling #education #library #bookworm #booklover #newbook #currentlyreading #lookalike #travel #california #wanderlust #girlmom #momlife #teacherlife #inspire #motivate #vegan #vegansofig #vegankids #latepost #happywednesday

4 sleeps until we leave for 4.5 weeks! 🦀 We are not packed. The house is a mess. Laundry needs to be done before I can finalize what we bring. There is paint all over the table from today’s activities and I’m prepping tomorrow’s scavenger hunt. I’m tired.⁣ ⁣ But then I heard those words from Parker at bedtime tonight.⁣ ⁣ Parker (smiling): “I no have to wear cream in Hawaii right mama?!” ⁣ ⁣ I can not wait to get her to the ocean. I can not wait to see her run around in shorts and a tshirt without scratching because she’s so uncomfortable. I’m excited to not have to closely monitor her nails so they remain so short that she doesn’t break skin when she scratches. I’m excited to skip our daily cream routine that helps her skin stay moisturize. She hates the routine. And assuming we follow the same trend as the last 2 years, this next month will no only clear her skin completely , but reset her skin and give her months and months AND months of relief. ⁣ ⁣ “ No Parker, no cream in Hawaii” 🧡🧡🧡⁣ ⁣ “Cream” : any cream or lotion we put on to moisturize her skin. @theyesfamily

This time last year, we were still trying to convince Sarge that it was safe to come outside. Living in an RV was still just a dream. We knew we needed a change for our family. We knew it was time. . We lived in a beautiful community, we had 2400 sq feet of home in our townhouse. We had built our friendships and found our space. So why change it? Why leave behind the security of a sticks and bricks home? . I (Celest) has been trying to convince Korey for about 8 years. I wanted to to do RV life when he retired from the Air Force back in 2013. . Korey wasn’t ready. He needed time to let go of securities. In January 2019 he was suddenly without warning out of a job. He was looking at going back to school. I threw it out there—Since you will be in online school anyway, what if we lived in an RV and traveled? . I don’t know who was more surprised that he said yes. . We told Jilly she had veto power. She took 2 weeks and came back and said middle school sucks. Let’s go. . And here we are. . . . . . #Itsapackedlife #rvlifelaunchstory #nomadteens #nomaddogs #nomadfamily #homeiswhereyouparkit #roadlife #homeonwheels #rvteen #rvlife #rvfamilylife #adventurefamily #everywherefamilies #fulltimerv #fulltimervers #fulltimetravel #fulltimervfamily #fulltimervfamilywithdogs #roadschool #homeschool #unschool #middleschoolsucks #newdreams #fulltimervlife #getoutside #camplife #ClassCRV #lifeontheroad #rvers #2020Abundance

Reason 5,246,389 why I love this man! He helps makes super awesome STEM activities for our daughter! She watched a #TheMagicSchoolBus and asked if it would actually work. To which James replied, "Let's find out!" She is soaking up so much knowledge right now all while having fun! She is using critical thinking, cause and effect, and MAJOR problem solving skills! And of course after the success of their original bridge they had to continue to build to make it "even cooler"! I LOVE watching these special moments!! Go to our stories to see how the first bridge faired and what kind of extension they made!! 😂🌉 . . . #MagicSchoolBus #STEM #STEMActivity #MakingStrongWomen #GirlsCan #GirlEngineer #FutureEngineer #LoveThem #DadsWhoTeach #BestDad #SoCool #SoFun #Homeschooling #Roadschooling #Roadschool #homeschool

Our classrooms change . . . a lot. Some days I find it helps keep things fresh and exciting. But some days it is still like pulling teeth to get the kids to enjoy schoolwork. They will do it, but they don’t necessarily enjoy it. •••🤷🏽‍♀️ •••

*If I teach my children anything, it will to be kind.* We wrote friendly messages in the snow and my son cleared paths to make it accessible for everyone. We then studied bunny tracks and compared ones that were running full speed, and ones that were merely hopping 🐇 . . . . . #homeschool #homeschoolers #adventure #travel #roadschool #roadschooling #kids #education #yycnow #yyclove #thehomeschoolglobetrotters #homeschooling #homeschoollife #nature #kidsinnature #outdoorclassroom #kindness #spreadlove

So Justice use to teach toddlers to snowboard as a teen at Big Bear, but his son is giving him a run for his money. Haha. In his defense, Odin was woken up from a much needed nap. So fellow parents, keep going or stick him in a class? I know kids listen to others better than their parents, but Odin isn’t really good in ‘organized activities’.

You Know, sometimes it's cold, rainy, snowy and you just wanna snuggle up on the couch with a blankie and a bowl of chicky noodle soup..... So that's just what we did.... We had a lot of laughs trying to get everyone in the picture, but we made it happen! Mamma will always make room on her lap! 😍❤️😘 What do you do on those days when it's just plain yucky outside? #fulltimefamilylife #fulltimefamilies #fulltimetravel #fulltimefamily #fulltimerv #fulltimervfamily #fulltimefamilywithkids #fulltimerving #fulltimervers #ditchingsuburbia @fulltime_families #bfe #bigfamilyexpedition #snowday #rainyday #adventure #getlost #nomadlife #adventuretime #roadschooling #roadlife #roadschool #socold #cold #mammasboys #boymom #boymomlife

What do you do on a really cold day when everyone has cabin fever....go to an art museum.⁣ ⁣ We visited Crystal Bridges art museum in Bentonville and it was amazing! Walmart actual funds this for the community so it is completely FREE! ⁣We loved that they had little stations for the kids to make their own art.❤️ ⁣ I shared two of my favorite pieces we saw. The first picture of the sculpture with the men in line during the Great Depression was so striking to me. I pray we never have to go through that as a nation again. The next of the men on the cliff just drew me in. So life like. ⁣ ⁣ As much as we love getting out in nature to explore, we equally love experiencing different cities and art as well! ⁣ ⁣ So tell me which you prefer exploring....out in nature or the city? ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #familyadventure #homeiswhereyouparkit #rvlife #rvliving #rvfamily #rvlifestyle #fulltimerv #fulltimervers #fulltimefamily #fulltimefamilies #nomadlife #fulltimefamilytravels #lifeontheroad #travelfam #travelfamily #roadschool #schoolontheroad #homeschoolingfamily #homeschoolmom #havekidswilltravel #travelingwithkids #familytravels #thislifeathome #crystalbridgesmuseum

We’re back from our trip today, but can you really go to Chicago and NOT post a picture of the bean? I don’t think so. #cloudgatechicago

A question we get asked frequently when others see our kids boppin around, “Shouldn’t you be in school?” . “We are! We get to learn and see and do!” . There yah go. Homeschooling comes in plenty of shapes and sizes. While it took us a while to find our rhythm, we are thankful for having this option and freedom.

We woke up, spent the morning learning about the order of operations in math, prefixes and suffixes in ELA...then went to Sequoia National Park to see the biggest trees in the world! I love that we have the freedom to incorporate these adventures into the boys day. I never in a million years thought we would be the type to “homeschool” our kids...but this is pretty awesome!
