Getting There

So much of city homeschooling is about the journey, the people and places we learn from as we go about our days.

On our way to and from meeting homeschool friends for morning bowling, we took our time traveling by foot and bus and subway, making sure to notice all that was around us. Subway fiddlers, transit maps, mild autumn air and November flowers were just some of the things that captivated us during our travels.

A city is a big and beautiful classroom. Its museums, libraries, universities, and cultural events create boundless learning opportunities for children and their parents; but so too do the everyday sights and sounds of a city.

The journey to our destination can be circuitous, unpredictable, enchanting. Often that's just how we like it.
